Never underestimate the power of a calendar.
Never underestimate the power of a calendar that has verse a day!
Never, ever underestimate the power of God’s Word!!!!
This week has been a week of struggles. Not necessarily my own but yet of knowing that friends are struggling…..
with single parent issues
with transition & turnover at work
with parenting difficulties
with the progression of cancer in a parent
with relational tensions
This morning I woke with each of these on my mind. The desire to change or remedy each of these situations was pressing on my heart. Yet I know that I am powerless to effect any of these apart from prayer. Enter this morning’s calendar…..See I didn’t forget what I started with, lol! ……
“No longer will there be any curse.” (Revelation 22:3a NIV).
Did you catch it? NO LONGER~~~
No longer any relational, parenting, employment struggles. No longer any sickness. No cancer, no heart issues, no asthma, no migraines. No death.
Is that not enough to cause you to worship our Lord, who because of the very stripes He bore, will be the Victor over every curse we have endured in this life!!! It goes on to say…
“The throne of God & of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants (that’s US by the way!!!!!) will serve him. They will see his face & his name will be on their foreheads (now how’s that for a tattoo!!!). There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And, AND, AND (OK so it doesn’t read exactly like that in our Bibles. But it did in my heart!!!) They. Will. Reign. Forever.” (verses 3b-5 NIV).
Did you get it?
THEY. WILL. REIGN. FOREVER.
And that gets a loud “Hallelujah!!!! Praise the Lamb of God!!!!!!
Today I am looking forward to seeing His face, getting my “tattoo” & reigning forever!
