“May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.”
2 Thessalonians 2:16-17
God’s Promises are Good, both for the here-after as well as the here-and-now!
Reflecting on what is to come gives us hope enough for today.
There is something to be said here about borrowing from the future to make it through today.
The tough seasons we pass through require a little more of us than we are able to bear.
That’s when we come to a greater appreciation that this world, and what we experience right now, is not all that God has in store for us! Praise be to God!!!
We are made for Heaven! We aren’t there yet, but like Paul, we press on toward the goal for which Christ called us heavenward!
- What are you pressing through today?
- What are you needing from the future to overcome your current trials?
- How can you access what God has promised in order to benefit in this moment?
