God stirred something both amazingly comforting and powerful in me last night.  I suggest you write it down.

"Your future will be better than your past."

Personalize it.

“<<Your Name>>’s future will be better than your past."

Job 8:7 in the Contemporary English Version confirms in scripture the word that I was given.

“Your future will be brighter by far than your past.”

Can somebody say “Hallelujah!!”

Those eight words resonated in my spirit and have constantly been on my mind since that moment.  Here are seven things which will make your future better than your past.

1)  I Will Continue To Look Unto Him.

Hold your hands up. . .what do you see?

Something to cover your mouth when you yawn. . .something to eat with. . .something to comb your hair with. . .something to help you work . . .something to help you play.

When God looks at your hands, He sees unlimited potential for blessings, miracles, and prosperity.  We already have that authority as believers!

John 3:35 says:

“The Father loved the son and placed everything in his hands.”

When the soldiers came to take Jesus captive in the Garden of Gethsemane, the first thing they did was to bind his hands.  Why?

. . .those hands had made mud, placed it on the eyes of a blind man that allowed him to see instantly.

. . .those hands took the five loaves and two fishes from a young man and fed thousands of people.

. . .those hands had been laid upon a great host of people who found His healing touch brought instant relief to their sick and suffering bodies.

. . .those hands  stopped a funeral procession. . .touched the body of a young boy and gave his mother great joy and him a new life.

. . .those hands had resurrection power -- but so do yours.

Heaven is a place that words cannot describe.

I have a really good friend, Dr. Roberts Liardon, the author of the God’s Generals series who went to heaven at the age of 8.  The things he shared in his book “I Saw Heaven” are amazing and thought-provoking.

I’m sure we’re all looking forward to spending an eternity in heaven.  I’m excited about heaven but frankly I’m not ready to go yet…I still have a God-given vision to fulfill.

But one day. . .someday soon. . .in the twinkling of an eye. . .I’ll be gone.

I’m excited because I’ve got a first class ticket.  Can you imagine the view we’ll have as we’re going up?

I must admit that I might even look around to see who’s going up with me and maybe who’s not.

Should I die before the rapture. . .talk about a glorious transition.

I might also tell you that I’m excited about the welcoming committee.  No doubt, friends and family members who’ve gone on before. . .will be waiting.

Never let your circumstances define your destiny.  Rather create the circumstances that will assure your destiny.
