Good day one and all, hope your Saturday went well and was relaxed abit.There's not tons of verses in this one to read through, but sometimes one verse can mean alot of things. This devotion simply tells us as make us think how much are longing for Him?. How much do we see the work of God? We don't typically know people's hearts all the time. We might know the a porton of it by getting to know someone, but how much do we choose to see others like God sees us? Sometimes there are some things we are to see in God's time! Get to know Him as He longs for you!
11 Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.
The imperishable reality of heaven is the longing of every human heart. We all want is a home where we can live forever, experience endless joy in the Creators presence and be reunited with those we love.
God Himself placed those desires within us, so that we would never be satisfied with anything less than eternity with Him. He wants to draw us into a relationship with Him, because only by joining our lives to His can we experience the eternal life He intended for us at creation.
We are physical beingsbut we are not merely physical. We are part of the spiritual realm, and we were created for heaven. We are restless and dissatisfied with life until we find our true destiny in Him. Only when our searching and wandering leads us home to the Father can we find the peace and belonging we seek.
This world is impermanent and destined for destruction. But if we have placed our trust in Him, our citizenship is in the world to come, a permanent place called heaven.
Prayer: Father, thank You for creating me for heaven. Thank You that I can look forward to that day when I will leave this world because I have placed my trust in You. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
He has also set eternity in the hearts of men (Ecclesiastes 3:11).
Great word, great song and I am certainly looking forward to the day when I can celebrate in heaven with my Creator. Until then, Lord give me the strength and patience and love to know You each day. I am so glad He pursues us restlessly.
