Daily Devotional
December 21
And the angel of the LORD protested unto Joshua, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; If thou wilt walk in my ways, and if thou wilt keep my charge, then thou shalt also judge my house, and shalt also keep my courts, and I will give thee places to walk among these that stand by.
Zechariah 3:6-7
“Don’t be condemned about the Temple lying in ruins for the past fifteen years,” the Lord says to Joshua. “Don’t let that slow you down, but keep going and you’ll be used in even greater ways - among Heavenly beings in the ages to come.”

This life is simply preparatory for eternity, gang. If you walk with the Lord now, He will greet you in Heaven with the words, “Well done, good and faithful servant . . . enter into the joy of the Lord” (see Matthew 25:23) and you will rule and reign significantly with Him. If, on the other hand, you just cruise through life, living for your own self, your own pursuits, your own pleasures; when you get to Heaven, although you’ll be happy, your capacity to enjoy Heaven will be greatly diminished.

Your usefulness and capacity to enjoy the ages to come are being determined right now. That’s why Paul said, “When I became a man, I put away childish things” (1 Corinthians 13:11) and why he pressed on “toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:14). When Paul had a vision of Heaven (2 Corinthians 12:2-4), his life was suddenly changed. He knew that only one thing mattered: obeying the leading and command of the Lord. What we do for ourselves will all burn. But what we’ll never once regret is what we did for the Kingdom.
This Daily Devotional is an excerpt from the book "A Day of Feasting" by Pastor Jon. "A Day of Feasting" is a collection of 365 short devotions from the Old Testament books of Joshua through Malachi.  If you would like your own copy of "A Day of Feasting" you may click here to go to the SearchLight Store
