The Best Part of Your Life Is Yet To Come

One of the blessings of becoming a disciple of Jesus Christ is the hope for the future He imparts to us.

No longer do we need to be concerned about what will happen tomorrow, for we know our life is now under His control, and He always desires the very best for us.

“For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11

We need not worry about what we shall eat or drink or what we shall we shall wear, for our heavenly Father knows ahead of time what we need and will provide for us – if we first seek His kingdom and righteousness (Matthew 6:31-33).

When we get nervous about anything, the Scriptures tell us that, by prayer and supplication, we are to make our requests known unto Him. As we do, the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will comfort our hearts and minds through Messiah Jesus (Philippians 4:6-7).

So today, regardless of your circumstances or concerns, comfort yourself in God’s promises and rejoice in the fact that He will take good care of you – today, tomorrow, and forevermore. As a child of God, your future is in God’s hands and highly blessed. Regardless of your checkered past, the best part of your life is yet to come!

Better days are ahead.

Rising Sun_jpg For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11

Many of us have gone through traumatic and painful circumstances in life that have left us deeply hurt, used, abused, and rejected. As a result, we have been mentally and emotionally scarred which can keep us feeling unworthy, depressed, and mistrustful of others. We remain apprehensive of the future and doubtful of ever being happy again.

These experiences can also distort our image of God. We may ask ourselves, “How can a good and loving Father allows us to be hurt in this way?”

God’s love and mercy has never failed us.

We need to reaffirm to ourselves that no matter what other people do to us and no matter what trials we may experience, God loves us with an unfailing love. He is fully aware of every hurt we’ve experience and every tear that we’ve shed. In fact, our heavenly Father is already working on our behalf to make things better. He will turn something bad in our lives into something that will actually turn out for our good.

The Scriptures promise us “…God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” – Romans 8:28

We may not always understand why God permits things to happen, but we can trust Him to somehow turn it around for our good.

Righteous Job suffered pain and loss.

The life of Job is a good example of how God is a God of restoration. Job was a man that God had nothing but good things to say about him. He told Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who honors God and shuns evil.” – Job 1:8

Yet despite Job’s goodness, Satan hated him and set out to destroy him, his family, and all he possessed. But through all his loss and pain, Job never lost his faith and commitment to honor God. His own wife even tried to persuade him to “Curse God and die.” Job rebuked her foolishness and bad advice. He also declared his unswerving trust in God, “Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him.” – Job 13:15

After Job went through his time of testing and affliction, God worked all the bad things that happened for his good. When Job proved faithful to trust God in all circumstances, God restored his joy, peace, health, and finances. He even gave him a new wife and more children. In fact, Job lived a good long life and his latter days proved to be better that his former days. The LORD paid him back double for all his previous loss.

God will do the same for you.

Your heavenly Father loves you so much that He will heal every emotional would, help you to love again, and restore everything that Satan has stolen from you. Your latter days will be better than the first, and you will live a long life to enjoy it. You’re going to come out stronger, healthier and happier than you’ve ever been.

So shake off any negative, defeated or bitter mindset. Stop walking around feeling hurt, depressed or thinking about the past. Reaffirm your faith in God’s love and goodness. If you’ve stopped going to church, get into a good church that honors Jesus and preaches an edifying message. Pray and spend time alone with God daily. Do your best to live a good and righteous life of faith that pleases God. Tell others about the changes Jesus has made in your life. If you do these things, God will bless your life in a way you never thought possible.

Pray the following prayer today:

”Dear good and gracious Father, I thank You that You will turn around all these negative experiences for my good. I love You and trust You no matter what. I also thank you that you will pay me back double for my trouble, and better days are ahead for me. I believe it and declare it so, in Jesus’ name, amen.”

Life Without Arms or Legs or Limitations

The inspirational testimony of Nick Vujicic

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11

Can God can use a a man born without arms or legs? Yes He can! Nick Vujicic shows the world how to live a life without physical limitations.

“My name is Nick Vujicic and I’m 31 years old. I was born without arms or legs and given no medical reason for this condition. Faced with countless challenges and obstacles, God has given me the strength to surmount what others might call impossible.

My book, “Life Without Limbs” is all about sharing this same hope and genuine love that I have personally experienced with people all over the globe. It’s been said that doors open to a man without arms and legs much more easily than to anyone else, we thank God for providing that privilege. I’ve been invited into very unexpected places to share about my faith in Jesus Christ and literally millions have responded.

Traveling extensively to over 54 countries and still counting, I have been extremely humbled by the continuous opportunities that the Lord has given me to share my testimony. My greatest joy in this life is to introduce Jesus to those I meet and tell them of His great desire to get to know them personally by allowing Him to become their Lord and Savior. That’s what Life Without Limbs is all about.

In Psalm 139:13-14, the Bible says, “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

Because of the ministry of Life Without Limbs, God has used me in countless schools, churches, prisons, orphanages, hospitals, stadiums and in face-to-face encounters with individuals, telling them how very precious they are to God. It is our greatest pleasure to assure people that God does have a plan for each and every life that is meaningful and purposeful, for God took my life, one that others might disregard as not having any significance and He has filled me with His purpose and showed me His plans to use me to move hearts and lives toward Him.”
