Are the best days of your life behind or in front of you? Our outlook on life—and our answer to that question—can change with time. When we’re younger, we look ahead, wanting to grow up. And once we’ve grown older, we yearn for the past, wanting to be young again. But when we walk with God, whatever our age, the best and greater things are yet to come!
One of my favorite character in the bible is Moses. Over the course of his long life, Moses witnessed the amazing things God did, and many of those amazing things happened when he was no longer a young man.
Moses was 80 years old when he confronted Pharaoh and saw God miraculously set His people free from slavery (Ex. 3–13). Moses saw the Red Sea part, saw manna fall from heaven, and even spoke with God “face to face” (14:21; 16:4; 33:11). Throughout his life, Moses lived expectantly, looking ahead to what God would do. He was 120 years old in his final year of life on this earth, and even then he understood that his life with God was just getting started and that he would never see an end to God’s greatness and love.
The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.
What a beautiful promise! Regardless of our age, our eternal God is our refuge, that faithfully carry us into His joy each day. Let’s continually bring praises unto God for all He has done in the past. Let’s look forward with a grateful heart for all He will do in the future. Lastly, thank the Lord for today and for all of the blessings we have right now. ‘Cause when we walk and believe with God, greater things are yet to come!
