However, as it is written: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him."

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Kids look forward to Christmas, Disneyland, and summer vacation. They imagine how great those things could be. Christians look forward to heaven and dream of seeing the Lord face to face, of being reunited with those we love that have gone home to the Lord before us, and of sharing in the glory of Jesus and his angels. But we can't even begin to imagine the great things that God has prepared for us. They are far more glorious than anything we can dream or imagine. So let's anticipate being surprised and live with passion for the cause of the Kingdom knowing that any loss, any wound, any trouble, will "not be worth comparing to the glory to be revealed in us." (Rom. 8:18)

My Prayer...

Thank you, Father, for preparing a place of glory for me with you in heaven. I believe it is far greater than anything I could ever imagine. Thank you, Jesus, for going back to heaven to prepare that place for me. I look forward to the day I stand in your presence and praise you with the angels. In Jesus' name I praise and thank you. Amen.
