Looking toward the indescribable promise of heaven
February 13, 2012
But, as it is written,
“What no eye has seen, nor ear heard,
nor the heart of man imagined,
what God has prepared for those who love him…”
1 Corinthians 2:9
I heard a story about a little girl who was blind from birth. Her mother constantly tried to describe the beauty of the world. She would describe the color of a flower, talk about the glory of a sunrise or a sunset, try to describe colors of the mountains, and so forth.
Due to the miracle of medicine and the touch of God, she underwent an operation whereby her sight was restored. And as soon as she could after they took the bandages off, she looked out the window. For the first time in her life, she saw the trees, the green grass, and the blue sky. So she turned to her mom and asked, “Oh, mother, why didn’t you tell me it was so beautiful?” And her mother said, “Honey, I tried to tell you but you just had to see it for yourself.”
I think one of these days when we get to heaven, we might run up to the authors of the Bible and say, “Why didn’t you tell us how beautiful it is?” And they’ll tell us, “We tried to tell you, but you just had to see it for yourself!”
The true greatness of the believer’s eternal destination can’t be captured with words because it is just so wonderful. So as you look forward to living forever with Christ, do so with the expectation that you’re going to experience something better than you could ever imagine!
AS YOU LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR ETERNAL HOME WITH CHRIST, REMEMBER THAT IT WILL BE BETTER THAN WORDS COULD EVER DESCRIBE!

Understand what’s visible by unveiling the Invisible!
While so many people today only focus on what’s visible, there’s an invisible realm that’s just as real and just as active as the physical world you see.
Yet as you go about your daily life, it can be easy to forget that truth, which puts you right in the crosshairs of the evil one.
