• You are loved
• You have to endure
• It has already worked out
“God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son so that we may have life everlasting” John 3:16
This is the ultimate display of love, God had no other children, Jesus was it. God gave his only child (son) so that we may live. If this doesn’t say “I love you” I don’t know what else does. In giving love God also calls for us to love others. On those days where you feel as if no one loves you it is important to remember that God loves you unconditionally.
This was Jesus’ purpose; when in the garden at Gethsemane Jesus asked God, through prayer, for relief from what he was feeling, three times he came out of the garden feeling the same way. He had to endure what he was going through and what he was feeling because this was God’s will. He knew that God would protect him. Just like Jesus we have to endure, our journey, the path we take is going to be hard. The closer we get to our breakthrough the harder it will become, but we must stay the course, we must endure. He is always in the valley with us; we go through things so that when we come out we can recognize his power at work.
At each stage in your life you should look back and see all the obstacles that you had to overcome and know that God was right there with you. Everyone’s path will not look the same just like everyone’s praise will not be the same. Your attitude during your transition from one point in your life to the next is important it is what’s going to make you stronger, more able to endure all that you go through. Don’t worry about tomorrow because God is already there working it, he knows every move we are going to make before we make it and that’s how I know it is already worked out. It may not look like what we pictured but it is what God pictured, we can rest knowing that God loves us and he only wants what is best for us.
Lastly, because of these three truths we should wake up with some excitement each day. Thank God for everything and be patient in your coming and in your going. There are 365 days in a year and each day we should find something to just thank you for, and be grateful for each day. Today, I pray mountains are moved, finances are blessed, families are blessed, careers take off, and people are healed on today. God felt we were worth it so believe it, in Jesus name.
