Feb 28, 2018 Karla’s Blog Today’s devotional is teaching us to praise God, from wherever we are. Yes, even amidst the terrors of a storm. When your life seems bleak and you feel alone and lost without hope of finding any light. Stop and Praise your God. Whatever trial and tribulation you are enduring right now, is but the beginning of a great story of Victory. We may not see any possible way out, but be assured your escape hatch was put in place long before this trial began. There is nothing that this world can possibly throw at you, that God can not overcome. Don’t get caught up in the moment of your trials and think this is your future, for as a child of God, we are given access to Heaven. There can be nothing more beloved and sought after.
Given a choice of fine things here on earth, or to live below poverty but know your future is secured in Heaven, there could be no greater choice than God. I don’t mean to imply you must live a life below poverty to reach Heaven, just that, Heaven should be our goal. God has so much more than anything this world has to offer. Everything here will go away, but the treasures we build in Heaven are everlasting. I truly believe that we don’t have to earn our way into Heaven, but I do believe He will, reward our good deeds. If you choose to give your money to Godly works instead of selfish desires, He most certainly sees it. Ask yourself before every purchase is it truly necessary for you to live a decent life? Or is it something that will only benefit you? If so, then it is a bad investment. You will do better to invest in your future, where it can never be taken away from you. Keep your eyes on the real prize here, which is an eternity in Heaven with God. Praise Him for whatever trial you are enduring here, for it is how God teaches us vital lessons, so we can be the best version of ourselves. Every bump, bruise, and pothole has a real purpose. Use it as an opportunity to praise our Father, God.
