Deeper Life Higher Everyday Daily Devotional Guide





MEMORY VERSE: “And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body” (ROMANS 8:23).

Our devotional today opens up the matter of the general pains humanity goes through as a result of the fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, and the hope of the saved on earth when their bodies would be redeemed from the grave (resurrection of believers) and adopted by our Father in heaven as children.

For now, the saved, Jews and Gentiles, still groan in pains of hunger, thirst, disease, death and all forms of catastrophes. Hence, the hymn writer wonders:

“Does Jesus care when my heart is pained Too deeply for mirth and song;
As the burdens press, and the cares distress,
And the way grows weary and long?”

Praise God the refrain says:

“O yes, He cares, I know He cares! His heart is touched with my grief;
When the days are weary, the long nights dreary, I know my Saviour cares.”

We should not allow our present light afflictions to becloud our vision of heaven with all that our Saviour has promised the Church. When we get to heaven, all the groans and pains will be forgotten as the joy of seeing and being with Jesus takes over.

QUOTE: He cares.

CHALLENGE: It is better for you to suffer now and gain the future glory.

PRAYER: Lord, help me to finish well.
