“For we live by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7
I had a friend who had a dramatic experience coming to the Lord, so I thought that this is how it was for every salvation – that when you come to the Lord, you get some kind of sign indicating you made it in. So when I prayed to receive the Lord, I was expecting something, some sign- the sound of a bell, a trumpet, fireworks, anything, telling me I was received, but there was nothing, no fireworks.
20 years later I returned to the place where I received the Lord – on a mountaintop – at night. As I reached the place where I prayed, something caught my eye – to my right was a display of fireworks. So after 20 years of serving the Lord, He finally gave me my firework display.
The Lord calls us to live a life of faith. To serve Him even when you see no sign of blessing or reward. Even when it’s hard, do the right thing, keep going – because your reward will surely come, no matter what, and the one who lives by faith will be blessed – even with a display of fireworks.
Today’s Mission – Today, even when it’s hard, do the right thing, keep going, and live strong in faith.
