“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses,” Hebrews 12:1.
In the course of our daily lives, in the midst of our journey with our King Jesus, there comes those times when we can easily become overwhelmed with the busyness of life and the trials at hand. As I was thinking on these things, I sensed the Lord say that in the midst of great pressure there is a great CLOUD of witnesses who are CHEERING the saints of God on!
Today, even in this very moment, I want to encourage each of you to think of all who have gone to be with the Lord before you and to know that as you progress towards the upward call of God in Christ Jesus, those very saints that went before you are now CHEERING you on from the balconies of HEAVEN knowing that soon and very soon you will be with them in glory!
Not that we desire to rush our temporal lives to get to the eternal but recognizing the truth that the lives we are living presently are remotely short in comparison to the ETERNAL weight of glory we will experience in the PRESENCE of GOD forever and ever, AMEN.
