“For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion. For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.” Ecclesiastes 9:4–5 (KJV)
One of the exciting moments is when you see yourself alive the next day after a long night. Unfortunately, some people have lost the desire to live due to pain, prolonged illness, disappointment, etc. If you are one of these people, meditate on the opening scripture and keep your hope alive.
As long as you have life, your situation is better than one who is already dead. Hope and trust in the Word of God, and you will receive your reward.
Remember that God is the rewarder of those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6). Abraham kept his hope alive for twenty-five years before receiving his reward of Isaac. Joseph went through trials for thirteen years before being promoted to become a prime minister of Egypt.
Dear beloved, your time of deliverance and elevation will come if you don’t lose heart. Keep praising God for His Word of promise in your life, and He will give you the grace to wait till the fulfillment of the promise.
Hallelujah! Be an overcomer!
Prayer Point: Dear heavenly Father, thank you for giving me life. When I have life, I know you will come through for me. Amen!
