The scripture for today, May 10 (5/10), is 1st Peter 5:10 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
“And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong and firm and steadfast. To him be the power forever and ever.”
This earth is not meant to be your paradise, to be your eternal home. This earth is just the foyer. God stands at the door to heaven and calls you.
Are you too busy watching over things here to look over at his door? Are you too caught up with temporary things of this world to stop and listen for God?
Is there too much noise in your life? The noise of problems with job, home, family, government, neighbors, health? The noise of getting a better job, home, family, government, neighbor, health? Remember, you are only in the foyer.
Life is not always easy. Do you have the stamina to not be sidetracked? Do you have the fortitude to keep walking toward God’s door?
God can make you strong and firm and steadfast if you will stop the noise and listen for him. God can make you strong and firm and steadfast if you keep your eyes on his door.
You’re not home yet.
RHODA is part of my BIBLE KIDS series. Rhoda is lovable but silly and sometimes gets carried away with what she is doing. So, when Peter knocks on the gate, she runs to tell everyone and leaves him out in the street huddling in the shadows hoping no soldiers spot him. At the end of each chapter is “Think and Do” for the child to apply it to their daily life. To BUY NOW, click a picture or paste this: https://amzn.to/2PWNEbC
