Youth! As children, we thought that there wasn’t anything we couldn’t achieve. And we believed we could become anything. Astronauts, famous scientists, sports stars, movie stars, presidents, and generals!
But then we grew older. Life began to beat us down. Victories were fewer than defeats. Health began to wane. And most people my age ask: Are the best days of our lives behind us? Or put in another way: “Isn’t there anything better to life than this?”
The answer is yes. The best is yet to come if we walk with God!
Isaiah spoke of this in 64:4. “Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who acts on behalf of those who wait for him.” Paul paraphrased this verse in 1 Corinthians 2:9. “‘What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived’ — the things God has prepared for those who love him.”
If we walk with God, He has prepared a place for us without pain, without suffering, without want. There will be only love, acceptance, honor and joy.
The best is yet to come if we walk with God!
