My friends, there can be no closer relationship then God being the very air we breathe, God’s holy presence living in us, along with being our daily bread. His every word spoken within us. beautiful womanAt times throughout our life, situations and circumstances dictated that we were desperate, lost and out of sync.

But then we look back over our lives and realize every mountain and valley, ever terrain and rough spot in our lives was only a brief or sudden interruption, but only in our finite minds, for we now realize with no reservation, if we are “your heirs, and joint-heirs with Christ, that you never left us or forsaked us or never will.

In addition, as far as we drifted away, your arm would reach just that far to rescue and guide our footsteps along the way. And that is why our love for you cannot be explained until we walk on that sea of glass among “a great multitude which no man or woman can number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues.

And we will all be standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in our hands,” Rev. 7:9 (NKJV) for we all endured, stayed firm, and7_heaven-300x225 forever abound in the work of the Lord, knowing that our labor was not in vain, as we “brought into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;”

And “now we know we have a perfect right in the city” and we will continue to know it throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity. My friends, A Hymn of Faith in Habakkuk 3:17-18 states “Though the fig tree may not blossom, Nor fruit be on the vines; Though the labor of the olive may fail, And the fields yield no food; Though the flock may be cut off from the fold, And there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation.”

What a disastrous situation being described by Habakkuk but like Habakkuk sometimes God appears to be silent amid all the trials tribulations and heartaches that goes on in our life from day to day and year to year.

But like Habakkuk, we must also wait in faith and trust in an unseen God until the time when the world will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of our Lord, and His presence will forever shine throughout eternity in His pure and holy kingdom.

For we “Know that the Lord, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture…..For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations. Ps. 100:3-5 (NKJV)

So now how do we repay the one who did it all for us, while the one who lives by faith is not saved by his works, his works show that he lives by faith. His faith is revealed in his works, “and, behold, He will come quickly; and His reward is with Him, to give every man or woman according as his work shall be.” So please let’s keep our eyes focused on the things above and what we must do to be save.


So friends stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
