1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
This verse is music to my ears. First of all, it applies to me because I do love God. I'm sure that there are minutes of every day (hopefully not too many) where it doesn't appear that I do, but I am doing the best that I can. I do love God and am trying to earn that blessed compliment "Well done, good and faithful servant".
I wonder what this verse means entirely. I know that God has some marvelous things prepared for me, and you too, but what are they? So how awesome is heaven really going to be? How enjoyable is my future on earth going to be if I keep doing as He asks? Only God knows.
Should we muse about what God has prepared for us? Absolutely. Focusing on the good things that God has prepared for us is never a bad thing. In fact, it may help us overcome our current problems. This reminds me of some of the Christmas presents I got as a kid - the ones I didn't ask for. My mom and dad knew what I would like (sometimes) better than I did. God is no different, although He is never mistaken in what we would like best. So, I'm wondering again, what could it be that I will receive from my heavenly Father that I've never seen nor heard of and can't even imagine? The wonders of God just blow my mind.
Friends, remember God's promise for you. Someday will come the end of all suffering and pain, poverty and loneliness. Those of us who love God will have more than we can ever imagine. Now that is something to dwell on! :)
