Today : More Than This World
“He has also set eternity in the hearts of men”. Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NIV)
There is something about this world that causes us to yearn for the next. We were never meant to live here without belief in the next. God created us for more than just this. He created us to be eternal. A soul that never dies. He has etched it deep into our hearts. C.S. Lewis wrote, “If I find in myself desires which nothing in this world can satisfy, the only logical explanation is that I was made for another world.” The good news is that Christ came to make a way to prepare for the next life. He is the only one who lived in both. He is God and human in one. He made a way, through His death, for us to co-exist with a Holy and Almighty God. So much so that we now can come to God and call Him Father. That’s what children do. They call their Father, “Father.” And they long to be home. Listen to that inner voice and respond to your Father in Heaven.
Dear Father, I do hear another voice. It is from a distant land, and I do long to know more about it. There has to be more than what I can see around me. I come today and ask You to make me more conscience of Your presence. More aware of Your power and mystery. I invite Your Heaven to invade my earth and help me become a citizen of both. Awaken my soul to Your heavenly reality. In Jesus’ name.
TODAY’S AFFIRMATION & MEDITATION
I am a citizen of Heaven
Close your eyes and picture yourself before God. Hear Him, call your name and tell you “I have a place for you here with me in Heaven.” Let a peace and joy begin to fill your heart. Breath deep and as you do sense that you are breathing in an eternal air. Exhale and sense the peace of being home with Him. Do this again and as you do, thank God for your eternal home with Him.
