The first thing that I thought of after reading this morning’s devotion was this quote from George Whitefield: “We are immortal until our work on earth is done.” That means that until God calls us home we aren’t going anywhere, and that when He does call us home it won’t matter because we will be in eternal bliss. If God has work for us to do on earth then He will not call us home prematurely, for we were created in Christ Jesus to do those good works. We need not fear, nor have anxiety about what the next step should bring, because we have God, a mighty, and eternal King who loves us and cares for us.
“If God is for us, who can be against us?” – Rom. 8:31
As I read this evenings devotion I couldn’t help but imagine how many times these truths have helped those going through the rough seasons of life. I’m almost brought to tears imagining how beautiful these words are to the mother who has lost a child, to the child who has lost a parent, to those whose loved ones are sick, and to those experiencing various kinds of depression and despair. Take heart this evening child of God, for you have all spiritual blessings through your Lord Jesus Christ, and will experience infinite ecstasies as you gaze into His face forevermore. This is our hope, this is our joy, and this is our God.
