What is the thing you most look forward to about Heaven, other than eternally being in God's presence? For me, I think it is that there will be a sense of being totally "complete." There will be a sense of rightness about it all. In this life we are always confronted with something that is just not fair, not right; there is a sense of something out of balance, even when things are right in our world, they are wrong for someone else.
I know people who are extremely happy about the immigration bill that just passed and some who are extremely upset by it. Some think it is "just" and some think it is "unjust." Until we get to Heaven that is our reality on this earth. But here is true justice, there is a way we can all go to Heaven, because God is just!
Jesus made it possible. He took all that was wrong and made it right, permanently. This is not wishful thinking this is fact......"And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am." John 14:3
Lord, I pray for people to find hope in You today. Circumstances change, but You never do. Thank you for the light of Your Word and Your Holy Spirit who guides us into all truth, comforts us in our distress and magnifies our joy. I pray that where there is confusion and darkness, Your light will shine forth as the noonday sun! In Jesus name, Amen.
