Glory Seed Devotionals, 2015: Year of Promise
The best is yet to come…
“…What God has planned for people who love him is more than eyes have seen or ears have heard. It has never even entered our minds!” (1 Corinthians 2:9 CEV)
I had a good friend and co-worker who lived in the shadow of darkness and when things began to look hopeless he would always say, “Well, it doesn’t get any better than this.” And if he wasn’t quoting that one he had another one I will not repeat here. No matter how hard I tried to convince him otherwise he would not come out from under the cloud of darkness. Unfortunately he’s not alone because there are times when it gets so crowded there’s only elbow room. And to be completely honest I’ve even bumped into some of my Christian friends under there myself, had I been alive during the time Jesus’ crucifixion I may have bumped into Peter or maybe doubting Thomas.
Does your life seems to be falling apart one piece at a time? Do you find yourself temporarily living under the cloud of darkness? Are you convinced life doesn’t get any better than where it is at now? Are you waiting to see what fall apart next? Are your eyes so accustomed to the dark you’re afraid to leave? If so then you need to know no matter how hard the cloud of darkness tries to overpower you when you earnestly ask Jesus the Holy Spirit will bring to light and life the words of the bible replacing fear with the Peace of Jesus.
By the way even though my friend passed away before he was able to retire yet because of our conversations about Jesus he was able to experience firsthand what God has prepared for those that love him even though it wasn’t here on earth. But don’t you wait like he did Paul’s words are for the here and now!
Believe! Anticipate! Experience! Be transformed!
Grace and PEACE, Amen!

The LORD gives strength to those who are weary… But those who trust the LORD will find new strength…” (Isaiah 40:29, 31 CEV)
