Mrs. Gump. "Forrest, life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get."
Waiting and watching may sometimes feel like we do not know what we are going to get on any particular day. However, all of our days living, either here or there, are so very sweet and delicious!
Let us us all thank God today that we have been born in the only generation, ever, that has the chance of never dying. There have, of course, been many billions of people who were born, lived and died here on earth as time passed for the thousands of years man has been here. None of them, even Jesus Himself, was spared the experience of death.
We select another chocolate from the box each day and wonder if this will be the ultimate one with the cherry and syrup inside that will fill our mouth with the joy of eternity. Do not despair, be comforted by His holy Word and promises. The existence of the state of Israel after centuries of non-existence in the diaspora, and after centuries of persons filled with evil spirits trying to destroy the Jewish people, they are back, back again in the land that God promised Abraham, through Isaac.
Please be reminded, dear frustrated and impatient saints of the Most High God, to know you are special and a brief wait of a few days or weeks or months or years, if so be, mean little as we approach the end of this blessed age of grace and justification by faith. Our glorification lies ahead. If that thought does not make a warm smile come to your face, then I do not know what can.
We have already eaten the chocolates called redemption, justification and are expecting the cherry-filled climax of our special lives, the chocolate called glorification never to end as the sweet chocolate melts so slowly in our mouths. Alet us in the meantime, savor the chocolates of,sanctification, helping others and praying each day to be delivered from evil oppression as we occupy until He returns.
May our dear Father and His Son, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit fills you this day and every day until we ascend to meet Jesus in the air, with the enjoyment and privilege of that He is on His way. Enjoy each day, fill,it with thoughts of appreciation and hope, not annoyance that you are still here. You are all so very special. Never forget that.
