colossians–day 24

“Trials and pain expose where your hope really lies.” —J.D. Greear

Dr. Greear said that in a sermon regarding suffering, but it took my mind to Colossians 1:5, “…because of the hope laid up for you in heaven.” I believe the Lord asked me tonight, “In what does your hope lie? For what are you living life?…and what if you don’t get it…am I enough?

He continued, “What if I don’t give you a husband to be a godly wife? What if I don’t give you a single baby to be a godly mother? What if you never teach another lesson from My Word? What if you never use all that memorized Scripture? What if you never see a harvest from all your sowing…IS KNOWING ME ENOUGH?” The tears flowed…

What trials and pain is God allowing in your life? Examine them. Could He possibly be exposing the earthly thing in which you place your hope? Colossians 1:5 tells us that our hope is laid up for us in heaven: Christ Jesus Himself. Nothing on this earth will ever be worthy.
