Things That Will Last Forever

by Gregory A. Johnson

That Will Last Forever, by Gregory A. Johnson
All the stuff we work so hard for will not last forever. It will wear out, break down, be used up—It won’t last forever. If someone gives you a nice present, you can enjoy it for a period of time, but it won’t last forever either.

Forever is a long time. Forever never ends.

Just like stuff, conditions and feelings will not last forever.  If you are in pain, it will not last forever. If you are lonely, it will not last forever. Sorrow will not last forever. Sickness will not last forever. I could go on and on.

What will last forever?

God’s Word is filled with promises to us that will last forever. Let me give you one today that is found in Daniel 7:18. It says this: “But the saints of the Most High will receive the kingdom and will possess it forever -- yes, for ever and ever.”

Beloved, The Kingdom of God belongs to God’s saints, his children, the followers of Christ. The Kingdom of God belongs to us and it will be ours, forever! …and ever ….and ever.

This is just one promise God gives us. All of God’s promises last forever. The Bible is full of God’s promises. God’s promises are his gifts to his children. God gives to us because he loves us. He has given us the kingdom, forever!

Praise God for his promises. Praise God for his love. Praise God for his grace, his peace, his joy, his salvation. They all last forever!

Stand on the promises of God today and every day, knowing that the best is yet to come!

Know that you are loved,
