Power for Today

“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.” (Ecclesiastes 3:11, NIV)

There is no place like home. If you have ever been away from home very long, you know how good it is to get home. Home is where the heart is. Home is where we fit and belong. Just the word brings comfort and memories.

I have seen older saints get homesick for heaven. They have lost their fear of death and look forward to seeing Jesus. Heaven is where our real citizenship is. Have you ever thought about what we have in this life? It never seems to be enough. No matter how many material things are obtained, they can never fill the void in the human heart. Only Jesus can fill the vacuum. God put within the human heart a longing for home. We are God’s joy. The joy of children brings joy to life. We are the source of joy to God.

God placed His image and His heart in us, so that we will seek Him and return to Him.

Those who know Jesus will have a wonderful homecoming. It hasn’t even entered into our hearts how beautiful and wonderful our heavenly home will be!

Good night here is “Good Morning” there!

Dear precious Lord, thank You for making a way for us that we might spend eternity with You. Thank You for Your unspeakable gift of love. His name is Jesus. Amen.
