John 16:20 (NKJV) I tell you the truth, you will weep and mourn over what is going to happen to me, but the world will rejoice. You will grieve, but your grief will suddenly turn to wonderful joy.
It is a wonderful joy to me to know that, as a Christian, we can live in a constant state of “will suddenly turn”.
In Christ, no matter how difficult it is right now, you can live every day and every moment knowing:
- You are just one idea away from a breakthrough
- You are just one relationship from the next level
- You can face every day knowing that wonderful joy is trembling to breakthrough at a moment’s notice
The ONE THING for today: I’m not asking you to deny the pain, problems, and perplexities of your life today, all I’m asking is that you trust Jesus Christ, the resurrected ONE, enough to know that at any moment, just around that next bend, suddenly, things are going to turn for you and wonderful joy will spring forth. That’s the life and the hope for every Christian.
