God's Guarantee of What is to Come!
Friday, June 07, 2013
Isn't it awesome how God's word remains as relevant to us today as it was at the time that it was written!!! This morning I came to some verses in 2 Corinthians - I just love the letters to the Corinthians, as they speak so much of God's love for us!
So here are the words that I was led to today ~
Now is it God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come. 2 Cor 1:21-22
These verses say so much to me! First they are a reminder that we are owned by Christ and that he will help us to remain in Him! I am also encouraged by the indwelling of his Holy Spirit in us. His precious Spirit provides us with all the tools that are necessary for us to make the wellness journeys that we are on! How excellent that we are guaranteed of what is to come! Clearly this is referring to the eternal rewards that await us! Perhaps we might also consider that "what is to come" might also refer to the enhanced wellness and health that we are striving for. Afterall, the more successful that we are on this journey, the better equipped that we are to carry out God's plans for our lives!
Have a great day!
