THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS


DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

Three men escaped shipwreck and found themselves stranded on a desert island.
As they were walking along the beach, one of them found a bottle.
When he took the top off of the bottle, POOF – out came a genie!
The genie said he’d give each of the men ONE wish.

The first man said, “I wish I were back at home with my wife!”
POOF! He was gone!

The second man said, “I wish I were back at home getting ready for my wedding!”
POOF! He was gone!

The third man said, “Wow. It’s lonely here without my friends. I wish they were back!”
POOF!

Ps 27:4
One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD
all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in his temple.
KJV

Though we may never ATTAIN being in “the house of the LORD,”
we certainly wish for, and strive for that end!

This is not something we can earn, but is certainly given to those who have surrendered to Jesus.

One day, Christian friends, we shall fall on our faces beholding “the beauty of the LORD!”
One day, we shall gaze upon the marvelous beauty of His heaven!
One day, we shall join together and sing beautiful praises to His mercy and grace!
One day, we shall live eternally in that place where there is no sickness, crying, or sorrow; because
there is no sin there!

Those are not “wishes” – they are CERTAINTIES!

Let us so live that the realization of THAT day initiates action in THIS day!
Let us “seek after” that day by living this day for our Lord!

As Pat Boone used to sing:
”Everybody’s gonna have a WONDERFUL time up there!”

So, don’t you want to take someone WITH you?

Tell them about Jesus!
Tell them about this desire He has placed in you!

Love ya!
