We are in Training!

by Cathy Weymouth

Tuesday 12/28/11 Revelation 5-9 - We are in Training!

S=Scripture O=Observation A=Application P=Prayer

S - Rev 7:14 Phillips -  The Lamb who is in the centre of the throne will be their shepherd and will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”

O - Jesus, you are our Shepherd, leading and guiding us.  You provide springs of refreshment midst the hardships and pain.  Father will wipe away every tear.

A -  Sometimes it is difficult to remember that this life isn't our final destination.  We reside in eternity already as Believers, but temporarily in this earthly place.  This life may be more of a preparation for our eternal home.  I joke sometimes that when we personally go through difficulty here, we are being trained for some fantastic assignment in Heaven that we wouldn't be ready for apart from this difficulty. So, it's worth the pain!

P - Father, you have our destiny in mind.  You call us, shepherd us, prepare us and finally deliver us to our heavenly dwelling. May we keep our final destination in mind during this preparation season. Amen.
