Everybody loves a fairy tale. Everybody loves a gripping story with great conflict that draws you in...and, at the end, they lived happily ever after. We love those type of stories.
I have found, personally, that the more intense the conflict and more “insurmountable” the odds, the more I enjoy the story. The less likely a “happy ending” becomes in the story, the sweeter the ending when they live “happily ever after.”
Our life can be a little bit like a fairy tale. As we journey through life, we are faced with obstacles that seem to prevent us from achieving our goal. We come across difficult people who seem to want to drag us down. We struggle with problems that seem unsolvable.
If that is you, today, then I have some good news for you. You might be facing an obstacle, dealing with a difficult person, or struggling with a problem. But Jesus can be your way to living happily ever after!
If we will just take Jesus at His word and do those things He tells us to do, we can have the assurance of a “happily ever after” eternity.
In 1 John 5:13, John tells us: “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.”
If we will only truly believe (more than just a mental acknowledgement of God: the word implies obedience), then we can have absolute assurance that we have a “happily ever after” awaiting us.
This doesn't mean we won’t face obstacles, deal with difficult people, or struggle with problems (2 Timothy 3:12 tells us if we are living for Jesus, we will face persecution).
What it does mean is that when we face those issues, we can do so knowing that no matter how bad the situation, we have an eternity of joy beyond description awaiting us.
And we all lived happily ever after!
