Proverbs 23:7 (NKJV) For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.
Have you ever just sat and thought about your life, how it was before this very moment! I have, I have thought about how my husband and I started out with just a very, tiny two-bedroom apartment, a white couch, huge old school TV, and blow-up beds, as our only home decor! My husband and I drove a little white rusty dented car, with rusted expired tags, no AC, no rear view mirror and no door handles! We were not poor, we were dirt poor, even cockroaches had a better life than us! HA, HA, Oh did I mention we also had three kids by than!
My Husband and I have came a very long way in life, by the grace of God. During those times of going through those difficult days, it was extremely hard to see beyond our situation; but we kept on pushing forward! Too many people give up and throw in the towel! Living a life focused on whats around them, never having hopes or dreams of living beyond their current life situation!
However, for myself, there was just something inside of me,which I could feel to the depth of my soul; which saw an indoor pool, cherry wood cabinets, granite counter tops, and freshly done fingernails and a trip to Hawaii! LOL
I could feel it in my bones that God had the best for me and I needed to walk by faith and not by sight! I could either endure the state that I was in and keep pressing forward, or throw in the towel and accept a crummy life of defeat!
Well, those who know me well, know I am as stubborn as an old blue mule! I know many people think, if they could just see their futures, than they would push a little harder and endure every trail that comes their way!
As Christians we do know the future. The bible is so very clear, just pick it up and turn to the end of the bible. "The book of Revelations" tells us WE have WON!
Note these verses:
Revelation 21 (NKJV)
All Things Made New
21 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. 2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. 4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
5 Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
6 And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. 7 He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.
If anything will motivate you to keep pressing forward in life. I pray the living word of God will motivate You! For the Word of God tells us, that our name is written in the lamb’s book of Life and satan is defeated!
You’re going to enter into God’s final rest where there is...
No more sorrow
No more tears
No more shame
No more sickness
No more poverty
No more darkness
Reunited with love ones
Moreover, you will live forever with your Heavenly Father, in his marvelous light!
So today don’t get discourage were your life is right now; because you already have the Victory. Start seeing yourself in a new light, and You are a overcomer through Christ, Jesus!
Heavenly Father, I thank You for the victory that is only found through Your redemption blood! Lord, there will come a day of Your return, and I wait patiently for it! I plan on rejoicing and shouting for joy, knowing that I will forever be in Your loving arms;according to Revelation 21:27, which states," 27 But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. In Jesus, Name I pray, Amen!
