Don’t Forget Whose You Are: Revelation 7: 15-17

December 4, 2008

Revelation 7:15-17 (Bear with the length, it really is worth it!!!)

“They are before the throne of God and serve him day and night in his temple, and he who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them. Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat upon them nor any scorching heat.  For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd;  he will lead them to springs of living water and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”

I know I had last month’s devotion, but this thought hit me hard, and I want to share it with you: You know, its so easy to get frustrated and bitter in life.  Things never work out the way you want them to, and we get hurt by people and ourselves.  But as you read this passage, simply remember: You belong to God.  You have been bought at a price.

This scripture simply tells us that though things are tough now, and Jesus told us we would face trials and tribulations in life (John 16:33), a time is coming when all pain, sorrow, stress, sin and death. will be done away with.  He will wipe away every tear, and be our God. Close your eyes for a moment and imagine what that will be like!!

Be encouraged this week and month.  Though it may be rough, Christ has promised us that he will return. And even if he doesn”t in our lifetimes, we still have a paradise, a renew earth (read Rev. 21) to look forward to where we will be perfected and live with Christ!! Keep Your head up!! Take Heart because Jesus overcame this world and because of him, so will we!

God Bless, and finish strong! We love You guys!

  1. What you said is true. It is hard sometimes to understand why we go through the rough things, but they make us stronger. I was listening to “Little Girl.” It is a simple message: Christ knows not only your pain because he felt it to, but that He knows who the Little Girl is. He knows her identity, the one that no one else may be able to see, especially her. I dont think it matter your gender. And, during a time of great trial and testing, I clung to John 16:33. Not only were the words given to the disciples to comfort them, but to strengthen them. Jesus knew what lay ahead and knew them well enough to give them words to sustain them. Take heart! Two common words, but they have a wealth of meaning. Especially since, we need to focus on that day where we will be worshipping God day and night.

  2. I agree with what Amanda said, because sometimes it is hard to understand why we go through the rough things that we go through, but you know what if you really believe in God the rough things will definitely will make us alot stronger. It also goes along with “Little Girl” and “Let The World Know”. The reason why, is because God does indeed know are pain because he did die for us and felt it to, we also have to let the world know why he died for us and that we shouldn’t suffer anymore.
