After THIS Live!

1st Peter 5:8-11

8 Discipline yourselves, keep alert. Like a roaring lion your adversary the devil prowls around, looking for someone to devour. 9 Resist him, steadfast in your faith, for you know that your brothers and sisters in all the world are undergoing the same kinds of suffering. 10 And after you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, support, strengthen, and establish you. 11 To him be the power forever and ever. Amen (NRSV)

We as a people often times live in the RIGHT NOW of life. We focus more on where we are, what's being done to us, how things are going the way we planned, at this age I pictured myself being there and not here, everywhere I turn there is trouble so maybe this is just my plight. We never take time to think about AFTER THIS!!!

Many of us suffer from the IER syndrome.... We are impulse emotional responders. We never consider what's to come we just respond right now! I know things are rough but if I can't just look pass the turmoil and get a glimpse of my AFTER THIS... Before I respond if I would just take a moment and think about the AFTER maybe I won't get stuck in the now. If I just think about the AFTER maybe I would make better choices right now.

After the pain, after the noise, after the pressing, after the persecution, after the lies..... You have to live in that place called AFTER THIS!

Declare with me, "AFTER THIS there will be a time for REJUVENATION, RESTORATION and RECOVERY!!!"
