The scripture for today, May 10, is 1st Peter 5:10f 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 our paradise, to be our eternal home. This earth is just the foyer. God stands at the door to heaven and calls us. But are we too busy watching over things here to look over at his door? Are we too caught up with temporary things of this world to stop and listen for God?
Is there too much noise in our life? The noise of problems with job, our home, our family, our government, our neighbors, our health? Remember, we are only in the foyer. Life is not always easy. Do we have the stamina to not be side tracked? Do we have the fortitude to keep walking toward his door?
God can make us strong and firm and steadfast if we will stop the noise and listen for him. God can make us strong and firm and steadfast if we keep our eyes on his door.
We’re not home yet.
