Part 4: A Glorious Future
Message: Eternity In Your Sights
Oh! Teach us to live wisely and well...
Psalm 90:12 (Message)
Whether you recognise it or not, the seeds for your glorious future have already been sown. Your various life experiences, relationships, even your mistakes have all contributed to fertilise those seeds of purpose. God’s route to your glorious future relies on His unique sense of direction, not the logical, straightforward route you might envision.
The doorway to your glorious future is likely to be open already, waiting for you to step up and walk through it. If you’re frustrated by unrealised dreams and ongoing disappointments, ask God to show you today’s step, the one priority to keep you moving forward.
Always believe the best for the future. If you view the future through regret, the past, disappointments or hurt, then you will lose sight of God’s goodness. All you have to do is live long enough, and you realise that life can be painful. But no matter what you’re facing or what’s going on around you, you must believe the best for the future, in Jesus’ name.
God has given you his Word on your future: “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you…thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope” (Jer. 29:11). If you believe God is who He says He is, then you must also know that through it all, a glorious future that will surprise you and fulfill your deepest longings awaits you; a future that will reflect God’s goodness and power, his glory and grace.
Stay on this path, my friend. Follow Jesus, and God will crown you with His goodness. You have an amazing inheritance in Jesus’ name, a mountain to summit and a path to pioneer. You have a faith lane that is all your own, a grace zone that is waiting for you to occupy. The difficult path and shame of your past is no match for his name, for His healing power, and His holy calling. Your unique gifts are tailored perfectly to outwork His purpose in this generation and your wide-open, spacious, God-ordained life is waiting for you to jump right in! Live, love, and lead like Jesus and your life on earth and in Heaven will reflect the ongoing glory of God—in all things!
There is no doubt—your best is yet to come!
Prayer: I thank You Lord for the Glorious future that awaits me. Show me today the next step to take that leads me and keeps me on Your path and may eternity always be in my sights. Halleluiah!
