Daily in Your Presence - July 23
Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beersheba,
and there he called upon the name of the Lord,
the Eternal God.
FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, you have no concept of the magnitude of etern-ity. How could you? Although I created you in My image, you are limited now by finite humanness. But I have put My Spirit within you. I have placed in your heart the longing for eternity—another world, another place. That way, you won't be so tied to this existence that you forget what eternity is for. I am your Eternal God, and I'm preparing you to dwell with Me forever.
A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
In my limited understanding I cannot imagine a place or a person where time has no limits. You are Eternal God. All of the greatness, goodness, and beauty in You I have come to know will never end. Right now I see only a tiny glimpse of You. You are forever, Lord, forever.
Who would want to stay earthbound after a glimpse of eternity?
