Finding The Best

A doctor was reviewing his list of patients, and he said to his nurse, “I can’t understand it. We had more patients last year than we have had this year. I wonder where they are going?”

“Rather than worry,” said his nurse, “let’s hope for their best.”

Instead of hoping for the best, we can have the best – the gift of God’s salvation.

David, writing in Psalm 23 said, “You (God) prepare a table for me in the presence of my enemies”. No matter how difficult our days or how dark our nights, God will provide for our every need.

And Jesus said “…if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.” When our life on earth ends and we have completed the work that He has for us to do, we have His Word that He will take us to be with Him forever.

What we can know is that God will take care of us in this life and the life to come. We simply need to ask as did the thief on the cross: “Lord, remember me.”

Prayer: We know, heavenly Father, that You love us and have promised us that whatever we ask in Your name You will give to us. We ask for Your salvation now and the assurance of life with You in heaven. Amen.

Scripture for Today: Luke 23:39-43
