“And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.” Revelation 22:12
“Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.” James 5:7
While in prayer, the Lord instructed me to tell you, “I am coming soon. Hold on and don’t faint. I am your strength as you wait.”
Close your eyes for a moment. Imagine you’ve waited on God and He has come for you. Imagine the warmth of His presence as you are now with Him in eternity. Imagine the glory all around you. Imagine for a second that you overcame every obstacle the enemy threw at you, and you fought until the very end. Imagine that you didn’t cave into the pressure but endured with everything in you. You gave it all you had, and now you can enjoy His reward and His rest. Imagine you are standing with a crown on your head and you are dressed in your royal robe. It is finished. You completed your earthly assignment, and God is so pleased. You then look to your right, and you see a long line of people entering into His gates. They are people of all ages and every ethnicity. You ask the Lord, “Who are these people?” He tells you, “These are the ones you turned to Me. These are the ones you prayed for to be saved. These are the ones your life touched.” You look, trying to see the end of the line of people. You’re not able to see an end. You’ve impacted so many for the Lord.
With tears, I tell you with all sincerity, you are impacting more lives than you can imagine. When God says, He will do exceeding abundantly above all that you can ask or think, He means it. He is using everything in your life to bless somebody and to bring glory to His name. Don’t ever think your life doesn’t matter. It matters greatly, and one day you will see just how much it does. You matter in God’s Kingdom. It is not your light that makes you beautiful, my sister. It is your struggle. It is your determination not to let your light die. If you’ve made it this far, receive God’s help and His strength to keep going. Keep reaching. Keep proclaiming. Keep enduring and keep waiting patiently for Him. He says, “I am coming soon. Hold on and don’t faint. I am your strength as you wait.”
Prayer: Yes Lord. Thank you for speaking to my heart. I receive your words and your deep encouragement. I receive your strength and the help of your Holy Ghost. Thank you for giving me a second wind. Thank you one day I will see you face to face, but until that day, help me to finish my course with joy and finish the race you’ve set before me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
