“God is keeping careful watch over us and the future. The Day is coming when you’ll have it all––life healed and whole.” 1 Peter 1:5 TM
This should be a huge encouragement for those who are in Jesus. He is not going to leave you to fend for yourself in this world. The God of angel armies will shield you. You cannot have your salvation taken away from you, and you will not be overtaken by anything in this world or in the world to come.
This will mean a lot more for those who are really going for it with their faith. When you stick your neck out for God, He is like a fortress for you. You might bend, but you will not break.
If you have tasted any love, peace, joy, or encouragement in this life, this is but a small picture of what is to come. God is going to finish what He started in you. You will be completely healed and made whole in the coming life. All good things you receive now, however great they may be, are just a deposit of what is to come. For now, you are being made into who you were created to be, but when it’s all said and done, you will be made perfect, not lacking anything.
Are you encouraged by this verse? If not, ask the Lord why that is. Perhaps the enemy is discouraging you; or perhaps God wants you to step out more in your faith, so He can come through for you.
