“There shall no longer exist there anything that is accursed (detestable, foul, offensive, impure, hateful, or horrible). But the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall worship Him [pay divine honors to Him and do Him holy service]. They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads.” Revelation 22:3-4 ->me: As I sit here thinking about this year that has passed I am grateful for where the Lord has brought me. I see the road more clearly and know that I am being sanctified by Him as I seek Him. This year I spent time reading Ecclesiastes hearing about all the futility under the sun and then I found myself seeking shelter in the same futilities I learned about just months earlier. I have learned that I need God EVERY DAY – I need to ask Him, seek Him, and persevere (“For everyone who keeps on asking receives; and he who keeps on seeking finds; and to him who keeps on knocking, [the door] will be opened.” Matthew 7:8). I have learned that my circumstances cannot dictate my closeness with my King. I have learned that temptation never goes away but that you can continue to increase the wins over the losses with the power of God alone. I have learned that fellowship with Christian men is underrated and I wish I had learned to seek out these men earlier in life for accountability and support. I have learned that there is no greater gift on this earth than a Godly wife who prepares her husband to see God’s face (as verse 4 above says)…think about that, Moses was denied the ability to see God’s face but in Heaven we will all exist every day living out the consummation of bliss which is the vision of God. There will be nothing between Him and us.
