12 Jul 2017 HIS PROMISE!

John 14:3  

“And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”

One of the most distressing situations I have encountered as a Christian Counselor and Pastor are broken promises. At times it feels as if the individual who has broken the promise has done so intentionally. It is no consolation that the aggrieved party suffers even greater pain.

Those closest to us may break their promises to us, but God never has nor will He ever break His promise. He is always faithful and true. Not only does He tell us that He is preparing a place for us, He also assures us He is coming again to take us to be with Him.

As I read today’s Scripture once again I am struck by the promise that Jesus is returning to receive us to Himself. He is not just taking us to the place He has prepared for us and dropping us off. Instead He is taking us to be with Him!

Do you ever feel lonely and isolated? The promise we have from the Lord is that we will be in His presence forever. In our new and glorified bodies we will be able to experience His presence eternally. THAT IS HIS FAITHFUL PROMISE!

May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!
