He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Revelations 21:4
Pressures of life are a constant sometimes they feel unbearable, everything is going wrong. Why all this injustice? The immoral and wicked people seems to prosper and yet we cannot have a breath of fresh air. I cannot take this any longer…..
How many times these thoughts passed through our minds ? Such thoughts come spontaneously and we cannot prevent them to enter into our minds, however we do have the power to control them. As Christians we have the right tools to overcome such burdens and heaviness this world has to offer. First of all God sent us the promised help, the Holy Spirit who helps us in our day to day hurdles and Jesus himself promised that if we go to Him, he will make our burden lighter (Matthew 11:28).
Another counter action to life pressures is the Hope of glory we have in Christ Jesus. The passage we have above from Revelations is a promise we have from the Faithful One. Like successful athletes who are in the middle of a hard marathon, the thought of the finishing line is what makes them go on and press on. So should us Christians be. Thinking about that day when the Lord will tell us “Come into my rest you faithful servant.”
“Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.” (1 Timothy 6:12)
The finishing line is closer than you think, come on my friend keep holding strong and seek holiness as you allow the Holy Spirit to sanctify you and change you more and more into the Christ likeness, our ultimate goal as Christians.
Smile and rejoice in knowing that the best is yet to come 🙂
