Dec 20 Devotion: Oh What A Day!

Oh What A Day!

Romans 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

We are a little less than a week away now from one of the craziest shopping days ever! Return day, and clearance day. All kinds of people bargain shopping, spending gift cards, and returning those things they don’t like. Yes these are trivial things when compared to more dire life situations.

However, regardless of the situation, think about this verse. If you are saved then you have something to glory in! We have something to look forward to! A place of no more curse, and no more sorrow!

Revelation 22:3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:

Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

A place with gates of pearl, a street of gold, walls of jasper, and foundations like we can’t even imagine!

Revelation 21:18-21

[18] And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass. [19] And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; [20] The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst. [21] And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.

Whatever you may be facing today, take solace that there is coming a day when we will put all this behind us, and spend eternity worshipping the One who got us through it all!

God bless you today!

Bro. Josh Richardson
