And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes: and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. Revelation 21:4
How is it possible, after experiencing all of the struggles in life that we will be able to live in a perfect world without tears, death, sorrow, crying, pain or any disruption of peace and happiness? Our finite minds cannot imagine living on a New Earth void of sin and all of its terrible effects; even so, we must accept the promises of God as the absolute truth.
God was fully aware of all of the adversities that we would face in our lifetime, and He knew that many believers would succumb to accept the worldly belief that “you only live once.” But for those of us who love the Lord our God with all of our hearts, soul, and mind and possess complete faith, trust, and obedience to the will of God for our lives, we believe God’s promises of another life and that is Eternal life.
We must think about the many blessings and miracles that God has given to us when we needed it, and wasn’t He always on time? There is nothing that we can do by human effort to achieve the rewards that will compare to the promises of God for those who remain faithful to him. Remember that God does not ask for our help in the fulfillment of His promises; all He asks of us is to be faithful and just believe.
If God said it, then He will do it. He is Omnipotent; He is Omniscient; He is love; He possesses the power that we can never fully comprehend. Oh yes, a change is coming!
We must prepare ourselves now by letting go of all the distractions that appear to fulfill the emptiness in our lives. Make the commitment to search for the treasures of hope and promise by diligently studying the Bible; stay connected to the Vine-Jesus Christ through the daily communication of prayer.
It is the power of God that brings forth change; He is waiting for us to take action by having unwavering faith. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. He is our all and all.
Have faith in God to bring the end of tears,
Have faith in God; no death, no pain, no fears.
Have faith in God through the eternal years.
Have faith, dear friend, in God. Unknown
Bible Reading: ” Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father’s house. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. And you know the way to where I am going.” John 14:1-4 NLT
Prayer for today: Dear God, We are your children who have wavering faith; we are those who forget about your love, your power, and your precious promises that one day a change is coming. We ask forgiveness for the times that we are filled with doubt and the times that we forget just how Omnipotent you are. Forgive us for attempting to use our feeble abilities to help you instead of exercising our faith and believing that you will provide for all of our needs according to your riches in heaven. We pray for the humility to accept your will for our lives. Thank you for the death of your Son, Jesus Christ who arose from the dead and will come again to give us immortality and the reward of life in the New Heaven and the New Earth. We ask this prayer in Jesus’ name. Amen.
