“His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’” – Matthew 25:21

Joni and Friends Daily Devotional 6 May 2022 MESSAGE

Pain and problems do one more thing. If in our trials we are faithful, suffering wins us rich rewards in heaven. It’s not so much that the resurrection will be wonderful in spite of all our pain–it will be wonderful because of it.

My wheelchair, unpleasant as it may be, is what God uses to dislocate my stubborn resentment and dislodge my self-centered attitudes. My wheelchair even forces me to be more faithful to Him. The more faithful I am to Him, the more rewards are stored up in heaven. Earthly sufferings don’t simply aid us today: They will serve us in eternity.

Oh, to hear my Master say on that resurrection morning, “Well done good and faithful servant! You have been faithful in trusting through the trials… in obeying despite the hardship… in believing through the doubts. Now come and share your Master’s happiness!”

Join me, will you? Yield to God’s method of operating, His plan in your suffering. Allow your suffering to get you ready for the hereafter, permit it to prepare you to meet God, use it to build eternal rewards… then the hope of complete spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical resurrection will throb in your heart with vibrancy.

And then, maybe after a short while in eternity, you and I will enjoy a game of tennis on the courts of heaven.

Joni and Friends Daily Devotional 6 May 2022 PRAYER:

Master, I want to hear You say to me, “Well done!” I know that’s only possible if I persevere through my trials by Your grace. Help me to be faithful in these few things today. Help me to look forward to greater things in eternity.
