TOPIC: Disappointment Becomes Joy
KEY VERSE: They shall see his face and is name shall be in teir foreheds – Revelation 22:4
MESSAGE: One of the great bonuses of being a Christian is the great hope that extends beyond the grave into the glory of God’s tomorrow. A little girl was running toward a cemetery as the darkness of evening began to fall. She passed a friend who asked her if she was not afraid to go through the graveyard at night. “Oh, no,” she said, “I’m not afraid. My home is just on the other side!”
Billy Graha Daily Devotional – Our Many Blessings
We Christians are not afraid of the night of death because our heavenly home is “just on the other side.” The resurrection of Christ changed the midnight of bereavement into a sunrise of reunion; it changed the midnight of disappointment into a sunrise of joy; it changed the midnight of fear to a sunrise of peace.
Today faith and confidence in the resurrected Christ can change your fear to hope and your disappointment to joy.
Prayer for the day: Whatever I fear the most, Lord Jesus, I put into Your loving hands, knowing You will give me peace and courage.
