The Best Is Yet To Come Is Another Reason For You To Rejoice
The best is yet to come, as used here, is a reference to how no matter how great yester day was, by God's grace, we can count on things getting even better. A key idea in this series of devotionals, "Rejoice Instead of Weep," based on Ezra 3:10-13, is that "We should rejoice more than we weep."
In this devotional, let's focus on how the idea of "the best is yet come" should move us to rejoice. In our text, the foundation was not beautiful, but it was necessary for the rest of the building to be built.
Many of us cannot see the building, but we have a foundation. The foundation promises us that the best is yet to come.
Our marriages may not be all that we want them to be, but if we have a commitment to being better disciples and hanging in there with one another then the foundation is in place, and there will be brighter days ahead.
Many don’t have the financial situation that they want. However, if we have an adequate income, a mind to improve ourselves, and invest as we go then the foundation is laid, and we can look for better days ahead.
Our church is not as great as it can be. However, if there are just a few people who are willing to give of themselves sacrificially to make this church the best that it can be then the foundation is laid, and the best is on the way.
That is what Thomas Dorsey was hinting at, when he said, “The Lord will make away somehow.”
Paul gave us great hope when he taught us, in I Corinthians 2:9, that eyes had not seen, ears had not heard, nor had it entered into the imaginations of people what good things God has for those who love Him. Rejoice because the best is yet to come.
1. List some examples of how you have seen God change things from good to great in your life.
2. What are you going to do to increase your amount of rejoicing, since what God has done in the past, He can do in the future?
God, the One who is able to do more than what I can ask or think, it is to You that I pray. Thank You for how You have already turned so many of my good days into great days.
I confess that I have not given Your transforming power enough attention. In fact, I have spent way too much time weeping over things that You are able to change. Please forgive me and help me to live according to your will. In so doing, I will see that the best is yet to come. In Jesus' name, amen.
