Daily Devotional Rev. Johnnie Flakes,III - June 04, 2008
Our devotion for today comes from Hebrews 12:2a (LB) "because he was looking ahead to his reward."
Wherever you are today, meditate on this; if you look at the world, you'll be distressed. If you look within, you'll be depressed. But if you look at Christ, you'll be at rest!
Your focus will determine your feelings. The secret of endurance is to remember that your pain is temporary but your reward will be eternal. Don't give in to short-term thinking. Stay focused on the end results: "If we are to share His glory, we must also share His suffering. What we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory He will give us later."
Have a blessed focused day!
