NEW Devotional to be released soon!

Why did I write another devotional?

Now these things happened to them as an example, and they were written for our instruction, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.

–1 Corinthians 10:11

One of the things I look forward to the most in heaven, after seeing Jesus face to face and thanking Him for what He did for all of us, is meeting the people we read about in scripture. I was blessed to grow up hearing and reading so many of the wonderful Bible stories that make up the heritage of faith passed down to us. I’ve often said I hope there is a large library of actual video footage of the events we read about for us to enjoy. Some may think we won’t care about what happened on earth anymore, but these stories are so much a part of us and how we understand the character and nature of God, I’d like to think we’ll get to explore them in a more personal way.

Do you have a favorite Bible character that you’re looking forward to meeting? Whether it’s the more famous saints like Daniel or David or the apostle Paul, or you’re curious to talk with those whose names are only mentioned in passing, it’s an exciting proposition to know we’ll have all eternity to finally have some questions answered, and more importantly, to thank these individuals for the treasure of wisdom and hope their stories provide.

God was so gracious to preserve His Word, not only the doctrines and theology that guide our faith, but the unique historical records of ordinary men and women through whom He has written the narrative of Jesus’ story. Like Moses, each one had their own “burning bush” experience, where they had to decide if they would walk by faith in the Creator and His infallible promises, or trust in their own knowledge, depending on sight and emotion.

How will you respond when God calls to you in your desperate circumstances? What will sustain you when all that you feel and know lets you down? You must respond in faith, believing what God says, and building your life on an unshakeable foundation you can only see with the firm conviction that He is who He says He is, and He will do exactly what He says He will do.

My prayer is that in reading this devotional, your faith will be encouraged, renewed, sustained, and inspired. We have a role to play in God’s story, too. Ours may not be written down in scripture, but it is significant and important as we pass on our faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ to those around us. Let us be faithful to learn our lessons well from those who lived before us, until we all stand around God’s throne, a thousand generations together worshipping the One in whom our faith rests.
