“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.
Over the past years, have you been too busy watching over things here to look over at his door? Were you too caught up with temporary things of this world to stop and listen for God?
Was 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?
Perhaps God has stepped in and slowed us down. God can make you strong and firm and steadfast if you will stop the noise and listen for him. The noise has nearly stopped. Have you taken advantage of the quiet? God is calling you. Do you hear him? God wants to make you strong and firm and steadfast. Listen for him and keep your eyes on his door.
You’re not home yet.
