Let me hear what God the Lord will speak, for he will speak peace to his people, to his saints; but let them not turn back to folly.
Psalms 85:8 ESV
The life in Christ is forever. We realize we need Jesus and give our hearts and lives to Him. It is a decision that changes us forever.
But there are some that only seek God when times are tough. They need relief. They need help. They need some comfort, so they turn to God.
And then when He comes through for them and their problems cease, they turn their back on God until the next time.
This isn’t new. This is the pattern we see in the Old Testament.
But for those who do get it, for those who stay with God, even when things get better, they get to know Him in a deeper way.
Don’t do what you need to do just to get some relief in life. Give Him everything and experience peace all the time.
Here’s the truth. This world isn’t all there is. The next will be all about God or nothing to do with Him. You don’t want to be in the latter.
Living for Him now, putting Him first in your life now, means you get to hear His voice and walk in His peace.
Don’t you desire that?
How is your relationship with the Lord right now?
Father, thank You for pouring Your peace down on us now. But we long for the day when we will be face to face.
