“And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.” Revelation 22:12
Imagine for a moment that you’ve waited on the Lord, and now He has come for you. Imagine that you overcame every obstacle, and you fought until the very end. You gave it all you had, and now you can enjoy His reward and His rest. Now, imagine you are standing with a crown on your head, dressed in a royal robe. You are beyond thankful. You look to your right, and you see a long line of people entering into His gates. You ask, “Lord, who are all of these people?” He looks at you with a smile and says, “These are the ones your life touched. These are the ones you prayed for to be saved and to come into My Kingdom.” You look, trying to see the end of the line of people, but you’re not able to see an end. You’ve impacted so many for the Lord.
With tears, I tell you with all sincerity, my sister. You are impacting more lives than you realize. When God says, He will do exceeding abundantly above all that you can ask or think, He means it. He is using everything in your life to bless someone and to bring glory to His name. Your life matters greatly in God’s Kingdom, and one day you will see how much it does. Keep enduring and keep waiting patiently for the return of your Lord. He says, “I am coming soon. Hold on, and don’t faint. I am your strength as you wait.”
Prayer: Yes, Lord. Thank you for speaking to my heart. I receive your words and your deep encouragement. I receive your strength and the help of your Holy Ghost. Thank you for giving me a second wind. Thank you one day I will see you face to face, but until that day, help me to finish my course with joy and finish the race you’ve set before me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
