HEAVEN


Everything that we see right now in this world is all temporary. This world will eventually be replaced by a new heaven and a new earth. This is the place that our Lord Jesus is preparing for us, and only those who have genuine faith in Him who is going to enter the new heaven and a new earth. Those who do not have real faith in the Lord are going to be thrown in the lake of fire, called hell.


In this new heaven and new earth is a perfect world. God will live with us, and we will be in His very presence. As a result, we will experience joy and peace that we have never experienced before. God, Himself, will wipe every tear from our eyes. We will never experience death, sorrow, and pain. We will never experience sin; consequently, we will never be separated from God and each other again. All the sufferings and hardships that we are going through at this moment cannot be compared with the beautiful life that we are going to have in heaven.


We need to be encouraged that this world is not our final home. There is a place that God is preparing for us that is perfect and has everything that we have been longing for. We are guaranteed to be there because we have believed in Jesus and have given our lives to God. It is just a matter of time when we will be there. While we are still in this world, we need to continue to pursue in knowing God, living for Him, and serving Him faithfully.


Ask yourself this question: what should be your response to God in knowing and believing that there is a new heaven and a new earth that is waiting for you? How should you live your life now?


Write down the problems that you are facing today and lift them up to God.


Prayer:

Father in Heaven, I am so thankful that I will be with you in heaven someday. As I wait on that day, please help me to keep on pursuing to know you, to live for you, and to serve you faithfully. Help me to do the right things in your eyes, and help me to continue to surrender my life to you. May you help me now with my (mention your prayer requests). In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
