Yesterday, we began this topic. We looked at the fact that we shouldn’t judge people by their current status.
Today, we will continue from there.
2. The Latter Will Always Supersede The Former
HAGGAI 2:9 [KJV] “The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts:
No one remains the same forever; it’s either we get better or worse. Getting better is God’s heart desire for us his children according to;
JER 29:11 [KJV] I alone know the plans I have for you, plans to bring you prosperity and not disaster, plans to bring about the future you hope for.
The future we all hope for is what God has prepared to give us and therein is our confidence of a glorious latter end.
As children of God, the light is always brighter at the end of the tunnel. We are certain that things will only get better, but we cannot rule out the fact that there will be days of little beginnings and that time will always pass.
David started out as a shepherd boy. The bible even said he was following sheep(see 2 SAM 7:8), but a time came when the chance of fighting a giant was offered to him and thank God for his days of little beginnings, he was up to the task. David’s latter end was greater than his former and that’s how it is for every child of God.
3. The Ability To Perceive Is Essential
2 KINGS 4:9 [KJV] and she said to her husband, Behold now, I perceive that this is an holy man of God, which passeth by continually.
Just like the Shunamite woman, we should be able to perceive a person in his/ her season of lack, who is on their way to being rich and a person in his season of plenty who is on his way to being broke.
The woman’s ability to perceive brought what her heart desired and even sustained it in the time of need.
Deceit is in vogue of the now. There are wolves in sheep clothing everywhere. One has to be careful with going all the way for a person that has absolutely no vision. While you are hoping that the future might be bright for such a person, he/ she may not even have a penny to offer to the household.
Put all on a scale, is the person broke as a result of wrong decisions, or he/ she hasn’t gotten help because of attitudinal issues. Let’s not trade substance for a facade.
4. Do Not Expect A Finished Work
ISA 28: 10 [KJV] For precept must be upon precept, line upon line; here a little, and there a little
Everyone is a work in progress. We are all a project in the making, we are not perfect. It’s a step at a time, and so expecting a finished work will be too much of an expectation and trust me, it will be a shortcut and in life,y there is no shortcut…not ever!
Don’t set unreasonable standards. Even Jesus had to grow, he didn’t come as a full grown man and save the world in a day. Understand that whoever your spouse is, he/ she is still being molded in God’s hands they won’t be perfect, just as you are not.
However, the imperfection should be defined as some flaws cannot be overlooked.
Every believer has a bright future in God. Whatever level we are or what circumstance we find ourselves in, let’s not forget that God is true and His thoughts towards us are good as well.
Although times may be hard, our days of little beginnings are vital parts of our success story and like they always say; ‘God’s time is the best” and he makes all things beautiful in his time.
CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
My latter end shall be greater than the former
PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Lord help my perception
THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY
God makes all things beautiful in his time
ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
Trust God in whatever season you are in
2 KINGS 4
