Matt 25:34 - "Then the King will say to those on His right, 'Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world." NASU
The passage above is what is taking place on the Judgment Day. Those who have followed Christ have been separated from those who didn't follow Jesus Christ. We are compared to sheep and have been separated from those who have been compared to goats.
We are on the right and the goats on the left. We are invited to come and inherit the kingdom that God has prepared for us.
If you are in the middle of some very difficult times you hang in there. You stay the course. The sufferings you're enduring will change as surely as the world is turning.
God knows what you're going through and just like He sent an angel to answer one of Daniel's prayer (Dan.10:2-13) He will send an angel to answer your prayer(s).
You must remain faithful. Don't you give up. You give God time to answer your prayer.
In today's passage those who get to inherit the kingdom God has prepared were those who remained faithful during all their hardships.
Whatever your hardship is today it is not worthy to be compared with the kingdom we are going to inherit.
Here is what the Apostle Paul had to say about our sufferings in Romans 8:18- For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
Sufferings come and sufferings go that is a fact of life. What is important is we remain faithful to God and if we do we will hear the words - 'Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world."
When you hear those words you will never think about your sufferings again.
