The Christian life should be one of joy and peace and happiness. I know things aren’t always good, but in Romans 8:28, the Bible says, “ALL things work together for good to those who love God.” Notice, it didn’t say all things are good, but that all thing work together for good in the lives of those who love God.
The Bible also says in Philippians 4:13, “I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me.” These two promises should give us courage and strength for the journey home. There are hundreds of promises in the word of God that will bring us “joy unspeakable” if we will only lay hold on them (1 Peter 1:3-8).
We have been given the promise of eternal life, and an eternal home with our LORD and Savior. Some day he will return in the clouds of glory to take us home, “And we will be with the Lord forever” (1 Thessalonians 4:17-18).
Think about that. Forever. That’s a long time. The pains and sorrows of this present age will soon be passed and we will live in a perfect place with our perfect glorified bodies, forever. No more crying, no more pain, no more death. There’s nothing in this world worth missing out on heaven.
There’s an English proverb that says, “Many things are lost for lack of asking.” James said the same thing in James 4:2. He said, “Ye have not because ye ask not.” In Matthew 7:7, Jesus said, “Ask, and you shall receive.” Ask. Prayer is the key to success in every situation, so always remember to ask God for what you want. “He will not withhold any good thing from those who walk upright” (Psalm 84:11).
Also Philippians 4:6 says,“In everything, by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God.”
Prayer is the breath of the soul. Prayer is two way communion with the Creator. So Communicate with the LORD, every day. Talk to him and listen to him. Make sure you thank him for the blessings he has already given you, and share your blessings with others. God loves us and he loves to spend time with us, and our lives will be so much brighter when we let the light of the Lord shine on us.
