Today Reminder - 28 November 2011


My prayer for you for today is that you will remain strong through your trials on earth and that you will know there is a wonderful inheritance in eternal life. In Jesus Name.

1 Peter 1:4-7
Now we live with great expectation, and we have a priceless inheritance—an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay. And through your faith, God is protecting you by his power until you receive this salvation, which is ready to be revealed on the last day for all to see.
 So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you have to endure many trials for a little while. These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.

Life is but a moment. When you are in an accident you are almost instantly reminded of how fragile life is. It is in these tests and trails that God will be glorified by our faith. I love how Peter reminds us that our inheritance is kept in heaven beyond the reach of change and decay. Each one of us is entitled to this inheritance, and above all we will share in it while living eternally with God. So I will quote Peter on this: “So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you have to endure many trials for a little while.”

Let us stand strong today as we face whatever comes our way, and let us smile and trust God and know that through our trials we glorify Him.

More rain over Africa. So nice!

Have an awesome day, friend of Jesus.

Cheers
