Scripture: Matthew 25:23 –
23 “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’
I believe God uses signs to speak to individuals. I know He moves us to act through the Holy Spirit. All we have to do is listen, and He will lead us into holy moments.
Recently, I visited my 90-year-old cousin who was diagnosed with cancer. She knew her remaining time was short. We spent two hours together. I spent that time in the presence of a woman who was secure in her faith, her love for her Savior, and her family, and who had no concern about her future. She was at peace.
As we remembered times past, we laughed, cried, and prayed. The house was filled with the presence of the Holy Spirit. While we prayed, you could almost hear the Master saying, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” It was a reminder of the importance of family, of using your talents to serve others, and being rewarded when you enter into the Kingdom. Today, she is resting in her Savior’s arms.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for glimpses of your heavenly kingdom. We pray that when our time comes, we will be at peace, knowing we spent our lives in service to you. In the name of your son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
