I wrote this a few years back in one of those moments of complete clarity. You know the ones. They are fleetig but so real. Those moments that no matter what your circumstances or the enemy is saying, you know God is real and everything in the Bible is real. Be encouraged, Jesus really is worth it all. All the trials and tribulations…it will be worth it all.
“It’s going to be worth it.” There is a very real day coming when we will stand before Jesus and everything will make sense. There is a day coming when we will look into the burning eyes of the God Man who gave everything for us and we will say, “it was all worth it,” the sacrifice, the suffering, the walking by faith, it was all worth it.
“For this momentary light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison…” (2 Corinthians 4:17)
Oh what a glorious day that will be when our eyes will behold Jesus in all of His glory and touch the nail marks in His hands, to see fully what we only see in part (2 Corinthians 3:18), to gaze into His eyes that are burning flames of fire!
“For our citizenship is in heaven from which we also eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ…” (Philippians 3:20)
I was sitting in the prayer room one day and I began to have a vision in my head and this is what I saw: I saw Christ and I was standing before Him, it was the day of the wedding feast (Revelation 19) and His eyes were a flame of fire but gentle and tender. He had a smile on His face and Jesus said,” I have been waiting for this day! This is the day of the gladness of My heart! I have been waiting for you to be with Me.”
Lord keep my feet on this path and my eyes on the eternal. Forgetting what lies behind, I will let go of these chains of the past that hinder and sins that bind and I will reach forward to what lies ahead. I will press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Amen
“…and let us run with endurance the race that is set before s, fixing our eyes on Jesus the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross…” (Hebrews 12:1-2)
