Devotion: Are the best days of your life behind or in front of you?
1-19-17, OurDailyBread -- Our outlook on life—and our answer to the question are the best days ahead or behind? can change with time.
When we’re younger, we look ahead wanting to grow up; wanting to be older. Once we're older, we yearn for the past, wanting to be young again. But when we walk with God, whatever our age, the best is yet to come!
Moses, over the course of his long life, witnessed the amazing things God did, and many of those things happened when he was no longer a young man. When he was 80 he confronted Pharaoh and saw God miraculously:
"O Lord my God, I praise You for all You have done in the past. I look forward with thankfulness for
all You will do in the future. And I thank You
for today and all Your blessings." Deuteronomy 33:27
We too must realize that, regardless of our age, the eternal God is our refuge. We are uplifted by His everlasting arms that faithfully carry us into His joy each day. Yes, His joy - ours is yet to come. Hallelujah!
