Until vs Forever
We all hope for the following, and sometimes it’s happened unbeknownst to us.
Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
Most of the time we have chosen Until compared to God. We’re mesmerized with the charismatic, fun, and joyful personalities. Well, at least until there’s destruction, pain, shock, and disbelief. Then we’re left in a dark room on our knees asking, “How did this happen to me?” Well, “Until” is intelligent; full of wisdom and knowledge. “Until” knows you better than you know yourself— better than your closest friend or family member. Also, “Until” never keeps its promises and most of the time those promises are a facade. “Until” knows the scripture backward and forwards. You can only suffer the consequences if you’re unaware. However, “Forever” protects you from the roaring lion just seeking to plan, plot, and destroy. You were born to create and for a purpose that’s unique to you. The heart, the mind, and body want what they want. Don’t settle for “Until,” lean on “Forever” and not your understanding.
So, while you’re enjoying your time with this incredible person, remember he or she is only the most incredible person you’ve ever met until they’re not. Don’t be fooled and ignore the intuition speaking to you; choose wisely and always remember: test the spirit.
1 John 4:1 – 3
Dear friends, do not believe every spirit. But test the spirits to see if they are from God for there are many false preachers in the world. 2 You can tell if the spirit is from God in this way: Every spirit that says Jesus Christ has come in a human body is from God. 3 And every spirit that does not say Jesus has come in a human body is not from God.
Jeremiah 29: 11 – 14
For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for well-being and not for trouble, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will look for Me and find Me when you look for Me with all your heart. 14 You will find me,’ says the Lord.
