Everyone wants to think the best is yet to come. Unfortunately, we can think it, and we can wish it, however that doesn’t guarantee it will happen.
It is good to be hopeful and optimistic. But, unless our hope is based on something solid—we can never be sure there’s going to be a better tomorrow
The world is seemingly on a disaster course—with no end in sight.
Where is our hope for a better tomorrow for our country, for the world, for ourselves, our loved ones and our neighbors?
King David of the bible was a wise man who loved God. He had troubles around him as we all do at times. He said he would have surely lost heart unless he believed he’d see the goodness of God in his world and life.*
This is an awesome word for each of us believers.
As Christians we can always sing the song—the best is yet to come– for we are not only a citizen of this world system. We have been translated into the kingdom of Light. We now have dual citizenship. A temporary citizenship in this world, and an eternal citizenship in God’s kingdom.
We are part of this world. We live in it, we share in its joys and sorrows like everyone else. However, we have a much higher, greater and sure hope than just what this unsure n passing world has to offer. When you belong to God’s kingdom, and walk with Him, the best is yet to come starts the dawn of every day of our life.
However, sometimes our best to come is not instantaneous. It’s not literally tomorrow. However, it will come. For it is our good God, who has a good plan for our life, who has it all under control.
He will make sure the better tomorrow comes for us.
It’s the waiting that’s the hard part sometimes. If we just knew when, and where and how, we’d be fine! That’s not faith. The whole Christian life is to be lived by faith. Without faith it is impossible to please God. He said all things are possible to those who believe. Including a better tomorrow.
When we belong to God we march to the tune of a heavenly set beat. For the Christian no matter what situation, occupation, marital state, or financial state etc., that confronts or threatens us—we have the promise the best is yet to come. It is sealed and guaranteed by word of our king, who is the Blessed Controller of all things and loves us!
King David once again assures us… Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever.( Psalm 23:6)
Talk about a better tomorrow. The goodness and mercy of God follows us daily all our life. Then we will go to His stress-free, trouble-free, eternal home forever—guaranteed.
There is no better tomorrow than this!
This great truth compels us to bring joy, truth, life, hope and beauty to our world. Using whatever gifts and resources He has put in our hands we can share the hope there can be a better tomorrow. Our tomorrow will be better for having reached out to someone else.
I believe as we don’t give up in the face of adversity, but keep on keeping on—we will walk in the light of His best for us and those around us. A better tomorrow will come.
We can know our tomorrow will never hold a day where we will be down for the count. As we walk through our tomorrows, sometimes there are situations which will rock us, and perhaps cause us to stumble.
However we will get up! For God says though a righteous man fall He will rise again.
Sometimes, have to labor to make a better tomorrow for the world and ourselves. If we have a hope or dream or vision from God—it is by working with His Holy Spirit today, and tomorrow, and the next day, that our vision or dream becomes a reality.
A better tomorrow will be the result of what you and God do today.
What are you doing today to make yours and others have a better tomorrow?
If not sure—ask God, He’ll let you know. I’ll be praying you do.
And then get going!
* I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the Lord In the land of the living. 14 Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!( Psalms 27:13-14)
