See, God has come to save me. I will trust in him and not be afraid. The LORD GOD is my strength and my song; he has given me victory.” (Isaiah‬ ‭12‬:‭2‬ NLT)

Jeff Rennell was among the motorists caught up in the tangle of nearly four dozen semi-tractor-trailers and passenger vehicles near Michigan City on I-94 in Indiana due to whiteout conditions which left three motorists dead and several injured back in January. “It was like an onion. They went layer by layer by layer by layer,” he says of the 3-hour rescue by 15 First Responders. “They said, ‘We’re not leaving tonight ’til you get out of this car.'”

We should never be surprised when God “finally” comes to save us. With God, timing is everything. He’s not only meeting your needs but those of 6+ billion people also, with all of our lives intersecting to make greater impacts in the passing. God saves us so that others can see and be both inspired for their own life and witness God at work firsthand.

As you go about your week, don’t become impatient by what God seems to NOT be doing. God is always on the move on your behalf. Stay strong knowing that, like Rennell, God will not leave you until you are safe from the crushing layers of your life! You are loved today!

Simon Peter asked, ‘Lord, where are you going?’ And Jesus replied, ‘You can’t go with me now, but you will follow me later.'” (John 13:36 NLT)

During Jesus’ final days, He began preparing His disciples for His leaving. I imagine it was quite a shock to His followers, who reacted with a combination of panic and denial. So, Jesus gives them this word of comfort: You may not go with me now, but one day you will, and at that moment you’ll know how to get there.

For anyone that’s been to the funeral of a loved one, this may be our only word of hope too. It’s hard to say “goodbye”. So if we walk in the footsteps of Christ, it’s no longer “goodbye” but “see you later”! Death is not an end, only a door to another journey that we will all must make!

As you live today, do not live in denial of your future in eternity. If we Christians are wrong, nobody suffers, but if we’re right, those unprepared will. It’s not about be good, but being holy. Know today that your future is prepared and reserved! Live ready for both worlds! You are loved today!
