When we get to heaven...

“When we get to heaven God isn’t looking for our diplomas or medals – He’ll be looking for our scars.” Leonard Ravenhill

What is the most painful thing you are facing today? One day that will be a scar… The searing pain of the wound and the memory of the heartbreak can be swallowed up in His presence starting today if we choose His way and relinquish our own….

God’s Word promises He alone can cleanse the deepest wounds; He binds them up, wipes dry our tears, and makes all things new. His nail scarred hand reaches out to offer you the most intimate fellowship – the one of His very Own suffering…do it now and be comforted….Our part is to choose to die to ourselves! Take His hand, bow your heart, and watch Him make beauty from even these ashes. He alone makes all things beautiful in His time!

Stop running from the pain and hardship, it is the way the Master went and He bids us to follow. He longs to show you His treasures of love (Agape love). Deny yourself, take up your cross and follow Him – in eternity you will not ever regret these choices – “For nothing is too precious for Jesus,” said the famous missionary Amy Carmichael.

Do not fear beloved, it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you all things that pertain to LIFE and GODLINESS…He is prepared to share His Own Divine Nature with you…don’t fear the scars...Your Beloved Savior did it - He offers you the power and authority to become an overcomer too!
