A Glimpse of Heaven!

Scripture: Revelation 7.  

OBSERVATION
(What is God saying here?)

Revelation 7:15-17 (NLT)

15 “That is why they stand in front of God’s throne and serve him day and night in his Temple. And he who sits on the throne will give them shelter.

16 They will never again be hungry or thirsty; they will never be scorched by the heat of the sun.

17 For the Lamb on the throne will be their Shepherd. He will lead them to springs of life-giving water. And God will wipe every tear from their eyes.”

APPLICATION
(How Can I apply what God is saying here to my circumstances today?)

In today’s prayer meetings when we stop and think about all the trials, struggles, challenges and heartaches that we, our families and our friends face, we could fill a page listing the names and the needs, and we could spend a long time pleading before God for these needs. In being reminded about the glories of heaven and the wonders and majesty of my Savior, I was overjoyed to read about how He will provide shelter for us, provide food and drink, protection from the sun, and how He will shepherd us and lead us to places that will benefit us. How He will provide comfort and peace of mind so that there will be no more sorrow. This is so much that as mere humans, this seems incomprehensible or impossible. Yet I believe that God’s Word is true and that He will do everything that He has promised. So friends, if you are under so much pressure today that you are not sure if you are coming or going or if you could possibly make it through another day, I would encourage you to accept the Savior that I love and adore, the One spoken about in this scripture, and through a personal relationship with Him, not only enjoy a blessing each and every day while still here on earth, but also have the assurance of a better tomorrow when He calls you away from this world. There has never been love expressed like the love of my Lord, experience it for yourself friend.

PRAYER
(With God’s help, what am I going to do differently today because He said it?)

Father God, thank You for loving me so much that You gave of yourself so that I may enjoy eternal life with You. Thank You for giving me a glimpse of life in heaven and how You will watch over and care for me in such wonderful ways. I feel amazingly blessed in this life today, and can hardly comprehend how You could bless me even more when I join You in heaven! Thank You Father for that kind of love. I am amazed, and forever grateful. Please speak again to the hearts of my family and friends that don’t yet know You as their personal Savior.
