When you are in Jesus, your best is always yet to come. As I say this, many of you will assume that I’m talking about Heaven and while that is part of it, I also mean that God is ready, willing and able to do a miracle in your life right now, while you are still alive on this earth!
God is an eleventh hour God and He tends to annoy us with His timing. I don’t know if it’s His sense of humor or His Sovereignty (probably both), but I’ve seen over and over again what Tolkien called the euchatastrophy, or the good catastrophe. The Lord’s timing is rarely our timing, but He always shows up right when we need Him, ever-faithful to His beloved children. Regardless of how things look right now, you can take heart because the Holy Spirit is proclaiming over you that your best is yet to come. Your past doesn’t define you nor does your present limit you. In Jesus, you have an unimaginably great future!
Friend, your best life doesn’t come from trying harder, nor is it a result of your intelligence or efforts. Instead, it is realized because of grace, or favor, which is a free gift from God. You have been relieved of the pressure of trying to manufacture happiness in your circumstances and set free to rest in the goodness of Jesus. As you allow your faith in Him to soar to new heights, your best life will unfold as He transforms you from glory to glory. Isn’t that wonderful news?
