What God Has Prepared For Us
Daily Bible Reading – Job 33; 1 Corinthians 1-3
Today’s Key Passage – 1 Corinthians 2:6-16
A while back, I was driving my daughter to one of her after school activities, and we began talking about Heaven. My daughter, being just 7 years old at the time, had many questions about what Heaven would be like. She wanted to know if she would have stuffed animals there. She wanted to know if she would be the age she was now, or would she be an adult. She wanted to know about the food. It was fun listening to the innocence of a child’s heart as she tried to understand things that are beyond our understanding. For most of her questions, my answer was, “I don’t know”, much to her dismay. She wanted to know the answers to her questions about what God had in store for her in Heaven.
I think we all want to know about what God has in store for us – both in Heaven and in our time here on Earth. What are his plans for us? What will he have us do? Sometimes when I am trying to fall asleep, I try to imagine what my life will be like in 20 years or what Heaven will be like. When thinking about Heaven, I usually get stuck when I try to think about what eternity looks like…for me, that is simply a concept that my human mind cannot seem to grasp. I think one of the best answers to all of these questions comes in today’s key passage – “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived— the things God has prepared for those who love him”. (2:9) God’s plan for each of us is greater than we can possibly imagine. God knows each one of us personally and intimately. He knows more about us than any person alive. He had our entire lives mapped out and our entire beings planned before we were even born. Try as we might, we will never be able to fully conceive in our minds the depth and beauty of His plans for us. All we have to do is have faith in Him, and know that His plans for us will be greater than we can imagine, and then enjoy the ride.
