The Light Daily Devotional – The Story of your Glory
Focus: The Story of your Glory
WORD FOR TODAY
The challenges we face in life are meant to make us, add value and beautify our lives. In this life, there is no glory without a peculiar and inspirational story!
“You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever.” Psalm 30:11-12 NKJV
God allows you to pass through all you are passing through to give you a story. If you can think deeply about how you lived so far in life you will discover that in the actual sense you have a story to tell. This is not where you used to be and this is not your final destination because the Lord is taking you somewhere; when you get there your story will inspire some to believe in God as the Almighty.
No matter what you are passing through, be mindful of the fact that victory is in sight. The beauty of the process you are going through cannot be known as at the time you are in it but at the end. At one point, David was mourning and putting on a sackcloth but at the end, he said “You have turned for me my mourning into dancing”.
Time and space will not permit us to talk about the likes of Joseph, Daniel, Hannah, Abraham etc who had a share of their ordeal in this life but waited until God decorated their destinies. The process was not easy and palatable but the story was sweet and inspirational at the end of their lives. You also must wait until the Lord beautifies your life.
+ Will you wait until the Lord beautifies your story?
Prayer: Lord! Beautify my life and make my story an inspirational one that will prompt men to believe and trust in Jesus’ name. Amen
Emphasis: When you wait upon God your story will become sweet and inspirational!
Have a Gracious Week Ahead!
