Growing In Faith
Yes, God's best is yet to come, if we love God and we are in Christ. 1 Corinthians 2:9 (NLT) says that, "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him”. In other words, “The best is yet to come.” There are “glories” that come to the Christian in this life and in the life to come.
The best is yet to come. Unlike the phrase, “All good things come to those who wait,” which takes no regard for the condition of the heart, the Bible says that "all things work together for good" only “for those who love God” and “for those who are called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28, ESV). Are you in Christ and are you in love with God? Then grab ahold of that promise.
We, as Christians, have been promised that the best is yet to come for those who love God. There are a few truths to remember regarding this promise. First, remember that God always has the best in store for us, but also realize that "the best" is "the good, pleasing, and perfect will" of God, which is not the best car, home, clothing, etc. "The best" that the world promises will always be something that isn't in line with what God has in store for us. That's why we should follow Romans 12:2 which says we must not conform to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of our minds in order for us to see the best that God has for us. God is working wonders in our lives, even if we don't see them. Still, that doesn't stop Him from doing the best for us. Secondly, God won't stop in finishing what He started in us. We are all God's works-in-progress. Although we have been saved already, the process of our sanctification is a lifelong work, but we can take refuge in the fact that God never leaves His work unfinished. Philippians 1:6 (NKJV) tells us that "...He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ."
In John 2: 1-10, Jesus was at a wedding celebration in Galilee that lasted several days. Everything was going great until they ran out of wine. He told the servers to fill six large water pots with water. I can imagine them thinking, "What good is that going to do?" They filled the water pots, and then Jesus said to them, "Dip some out and take it to the host of the wedding." When the host tasted the water that was now wine, he said to the bridegroom, "Everyone serves the best wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now."
I want you to know that you haven't seen your best days as a believer yet. They are not behind you - they are ahead of you. You have got so much to look forward to in your life, but you have got to learn to stop limiting God. God's big! He's amazing! He wants to bless you beyond what you could ever imagine, but it will only happen when we stop thinking small and start believing God's Word and His promises.
The best is yet to come! There is a glory that is beyond earthly glory, and it is waiting for us. While you wait for the glory that is yet to come, be filled with the Spirit. Walk in faith, love, and hope and keep pressing on.
