The Best Day Ever! – Family Devotion – November 24, 2021

Read: Daniel 7:13-14

In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all nations and peoples of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.
Daniel 7:13-14

The Best Day Ever!


Family Devotion – November 24, 2021

Devotion based on Daniel 7:13-14

See series: Devotions

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

What will that day be like? Can you even imagine? What will it be like to look up into the sky and see Jesus “coming with the clouds of heaven” on the Last Day? What will it be like to see Jesus with all of his glory and all of his mighty angels? What will it be like to finally see our Savior and King face to face?

The prophet Daniel had a vision more than 2,500 years ago. In this vision he saw a little sneak peek, kind of like a movie preview, of what that Last Day will be like. What a sight he saw! He saw Jesus coming on the clouds. He saw Jesus with all his glory and power. Daniel also saw all nations and people bowing down and worshiping him.

How awesome will that be? Not only will we see Jesus our King, but we will join with other believers from America to Africa to Asia to Australia, and everywhere in between, to worship our Savior. It will be the greatest choir, the greatest praise, and the greatest worship ever!

What Daniel saw in his vision is not some made up story. This is what will really happen someday soon. Jesus himself came to this world once to live and die for us. He gave his life so that we could be forgiven all our sins and live with him one day in heaven. Jesus also promised that he would come back for us, just like Daniel saw in his vision.

Because God has always kept his promises, we can trust this promise, too. Jesus will come back. You will see his power and glory. You will see your Savior face to face. You will join with all believers to worship and praise him forever. And best of all, the joy of that day will never end. Daniel says, “His kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.”

Judgment day will be the best day ever when Jesus returns to reign as King with us forever and ever. Oh what a day! I can’t wait!

Closing Prayer:

Dear Jesus, we praise you for being our great and glorious King. Come quickly so that we can live with you forever! Amen.
