There are always lots of choices in life and lots of opportunities. In all of our minds, we each have areas of life that we can look at and say “Self – ya know you could have this if ya want it!!!” “But self, ya know that there is a cost to having this or that.” “Is the cost it would take to have that worth it or is it best to forgo it and stay where I am in life without it???” “Is this the best way to go about it, or is there a better way???” “Hmmm. What would Jesus do???” Well, the answer to the last question is that Jesus would do what is divine of His Father even though there is a cost to it and while there is a cost to it, there is also a payoff to it!!! OH YAY!!!
“For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it?”
As Jesus models sooo well for us in His life – what is worthwhile in life does not always happen easily and what is worthwhile to have in life is worth the commitment and hard work and sometimes even some pain to have it:
“No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.”
What comes along easy to us in life may not always be the best for us. Satan offered Jesus an easy way in earthly life if He would have chosen to go the way of Satan which would have kept Him from going the harder way to the cross, but the thing of it was is that the earthly gratification it would have brought temporarily would’ve not been worth it in the end when He would’ve wished He had stuck to the divine best that our Father had for Him and for us forever!!!
Jesus had to go through hell to get the keys of hell to open up the doors of heaven for us all who have faith in His finished work on the cross to set us free forever!!! His life looks all glorious as He is seated next to His Father on His heavenly throne now!!! WOOOHOOO!!! GO FATHER FOR THE BEST DIVINE LIFE!!! WAY TO DO THE VICTORY TO GIVE US SUFFICIENT GRACE WHERE WE ARE!!! When we get to forever, beloved saints, what do you want your life to on earth to reflect of your ability to hangeth thou in there for the divine worth-it life??? What difficulty in life do you face that will be worth the persevering for at the end of this earthly life in the eyes of eternity??? Jesus already sees us thru our faith as holy, blameless and without accusation, but as a bonus, oh how awesome it will be on the glorious day when Jesus returns to hear Him say to us each “Well done, good and faithful servant. Here is your reward.” His promise to us is this:
“Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every one according to what they have done.”
Not only are there eternal rewards for doing the difficult things in life, but there are also divine blessings that we enjoy on this earth as we choose to forgo the easy in life for the best in life!!! What is that for you, dear ones??? This we can know as we seek to go for the best:
“The eyes of the Lord roam throughout the earth to strengthen those who are fully committed to Him.”
2 Chronicles 16:9
Sometimes that strength is found in making a choice to put ourselves in places purposefully or surround us with that which will help us to not be tempted to forgo the divine best for us!!! Our Father can guide us in strength as this song says here. I’m a gal seeking to go for the best eternally with our Father with ya!!! I’m proud of you for choosing Jesus and looking to Him for the victory, too!!! Much divine love to you wherever you are today!!! YYYEEESSS!!! WE CAN BE DIVINE CONQUERORS FOR THE BEST DIVINE LIFE!!! WHOOOHOOO!!! LET’S GOOO SAINTS!!! 🙂
