"On That Day" - February 20

Good morning, Lord Jesus. Open the eyes of my heart, Lord; I want to see You. ...

"On that day living waters shall flow out of Jerusalem, half of them to the eastern sea and half of theme to the western sea; it shall continue in summer as in winter. And the Lord will become King over all the earth; on that day the Lord will be One and His name One" (Zechariah 14:8-9).

There will be a day when every prophecy will be fulfilled. There will be a day when Your Kingdom has come and Your will is done, on earth as it is in heaven. There will be a day when every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord (Philippians 2:9-11). There will be a day when the kingdoms of this world have become the Kingdom of our God and of His Christ (Revelation 11:15). That day will be "the time of universal restoration that God announced long ago through His holy prophets" (Acts 3:21).

We live between this day and that day. We live in the age between the day of Your first coming and the day You'll come again with fire blazing from Your eyes and the declaration of "King of kings and Lord of lords" emblazoned on Your thigh (Revelation 19:11-16). Every day, every breakthrough, every salvation, every healing, every deliverance, every sign, every wonder is a foretaste today of that day to come-"a foretaste of future glory" (Romans 8:23, NLT).

One day You'll come in glory in the skies (1 Thessalonians 4:16). But every day between this day and that day You want to come in glory in our hearts. "For, in fact, the Kingdom of God is within (us)" (Luke 17:21). "For the Kingdom of God is ... righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit" (Romans 14:17). So come, Lord Jesus, come. "The Spirit and the bride say, 'Come.' And let everyone who hears say, 'Come.' And let everyone who is thirsty come. Let anyone who wishes take the Water of Life as a gift" (Revelation 22:17). So while we wait with eager longing with all creation for that great and glorious day to come, we praise You and thank You for every day of Your Kingdom and Your Power and Your Glory in our lives now. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
