The Lord redeems the soul of His servants,
And none of those who take refuge in Him will be condemned. Psalms 34:22 NASB
Someone once said that a sign of maturity is being able to prolong gratification. That is easier said than done. Many of us want our prize now!
This saying is helpful for Believers. Our end game is to be in eternity with the Father. Life often feels like a long game!
But we are not without blessings in the here and now. The Father has blessed us tremendously if we would open our eyes and “truly see.”
But there needs to be something said about what feels like a long wait.
In reality, it isn’t. But it feels like it. So are you looking ahead to the life you will have in eternity?
Are you walking towards that day longingly? Nothing in this world compares and nothing in this world should take the place of your desire to be in the presence of the Lord face to face.
Don’t let the current situation in your life deter you from seeing the end game. Don’t let temporary setbacks, broken relationships, financial turmoil, take your attention and focus on what is waiting for you!
The things that cause concern now won’t even be a blip on your radar then.
Stay close to God. You have the promise that He fully redeems you and that you have a place in the family of God.
Play the long game. Stay focused. Fix your eyes on Him. Nothing… NOTHING ELSE COMPARES!
Father, when troubles come, help me to look past them to see You!
