But as for me, God will redeem my life.
He will snatch me from the power of the grave. Interlude
So don’t be dismayed when the wicked grow rich
and their homes become ever more splendid.
For when they die, they take nothing with them.
Their wealth will not follow them into the grave.
Psalms 49:15-17 NLT
I created you with the gift of perspective that allows you to contemplate the direction of your life. Sometimes this helps you to make wise decisions about your future and other times it can lead you to wrong conclusions. You see in part, I see the whole of reasoning.
This perspective allows for memories of happiness, regret and conviction for those things in your past. Adam and Eve remembered everything in the garden. The joy of daily provision, comfortable weather, and our talks in coolness of the day. They also remembered violating My instruction to abstain from eating of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. This led to many conversations between them of the weightiness of making right choices.
Your future can be filled with hope even amid great uncertainty. Don’t place your hope in wealth or in acquiring vast amounts of it. No matter how much a person has, it is never enough to satisfy the deep longings that I have placed within you. Money is of the earth and it will remain here after you are gone. Don’t be jealous of another person’s things, they will not be able to take it with them.
Hope for you My child is wrapped up in two major principles, My perspective and My presence. When I look at the totality of your life, I am not swayed by your wealth, your intellect, your beauty, your giftings or your accomplishments. My thoughts of you are characterized by your acceptance or rejection of My Son’s sacrifice over your life. For those of you who receive Him, My favor rests and remains on you for eternity. My Son is the filter for My perspective over you.
My presence will be given to you. It continues on through death when you and I will be joined together. That’s the fulfilment of hope for the future, the unhindered and unfiltered abiding relationship that we share in Heaven forever and ever. You see, I love being in relationship with you. I desire greatly to listen and talk with you daily. My Son has been preparing a place for you, that where I am you may also be. We can start talking right now, can you hear Me?
