Good morning Church family,
Ecclesiastes 3:11 says “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.” Often we live in the moment, one day at a time but have you ever considered that God has put eternity in your heart.Tozer writes “God says, “Don’t get so anxious, you’ve got eternity to live in. Just live it out. Just work it out, sweat it out, stay around, live right, let week follow week and month follow month, and keep right and keep praying, and You’ll win.” (and then we say) “ But, God, I want to win today.””
It seems another valuable lesson a Christian should learn is patience. So how does one with God’s help acquire a greater level of patience. In Colossians 1:9-12 Paul writes, “For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light.”
What is God’s will for you and I? An eternity with Him, isn’t that wonderful! Everything we face now will be dull in comparison, so let’s keep eternity in our hearts and continue to fight the good fight.
