The Best is Still to Come

post-title

Isaiah 64:4 “For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.”

The great revivalist, D. L. Moody, was at a meeting in England when he heard Henry Varley, a British revivalist say, “The world has yet to see what God can do with one man wholly consecrated to Him.” Those words burnt into the heart of Mr. Moody. As he pondered those words, he proclaimed that he would be that man. Mr. Moody’s ministry was never the same from that point forward, and God brought great revivals through his ministry because of his dedication to do something great for God.

The verse above says, “For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.” This verse is proclaiming that we have yet to see what God can do with any person who “waiteth” for God. The word “waiteth” means to serve. In other words, God says the best is still to come through someone who is willing to serve Him with their whole being and heart.

We have certainly seen God do great things through people in the past. We have read about Elijah praying fire down from Heaven, but the best is still to come. We have read about God using Joshua to take down the walls of Jericho, but the best is still to come. We have read about God using Moses to be the tool to send the great plagues on the Egyptians, but the best is still to come. We have read about God using Moses to raise his rod to see the Red Sea part, but the best is still to come. We have read about God closing the lions mouths for Daniel, and keeping the fire from burning Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, but the best is still to come. We have read about God using the Apostles to turn the world upside down for Christ, but the best is still to come. Whatever you have read about God doing through others, He still has power to do more today.

We have heard of the million souls getting saved under D. L. Moody’s ministry, but the best is still to come. We have heard about God using Charles Spurgeon to shake England for Christ, but the best is still to come. We have heard how God used Jonathan Edwards to bring revivals in his day, but the best is still to come. We have heard about the great Welsh revival of the early 1900s, but the best is still to come. We have heard, and some have seen, the great movement of God on the ministries of Dr. Lee Roberson, Dr. J. Frank Norris and Dr. Jack Hyles, but the best is still to come.

My friend, God is not finished! The verse above promises that the eye has not seen, nor the ear heard what God has yet to do. God says in Psalm 81:10, “I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.” This means that the best is still to come in our day if we have the faith to see it being done.

However, the key is the word “waiteth.” The best is yet to come ONLY if we are willing to work to see it done. The best will not come if we are playing. The best will not come if we are sitting. The best will not come if we are not praying. The best will not come if we are not soul winning. IF you will get busy serving God with the effort and expectation that God can do greater things today, the best is still to come.
