1 Corinthians 2:9 What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived the things God has prepared for those that love him.
Everything you’ve grown up to know as good. The things you’re working to get, the things you might already have are nothing compared to what God has prepared for those who love him. Wow! The one that really gets me is “no human mind has conceived” because we can think of some pretty spectacular stuff right?
Well I want share a secret I’ve experienced about this verse. Let’s face it, we are the “NOW” people and we want stuff now. Even at the store, if there’s one person in line and another person in the other line, I’ll start counting their items to see who I should stand behind. So, If we think this place he has prepared for us is only in Heaven then you’re probably thinking hmmm? that could be a long time from now and that just sucks! Especially when I ain’t got nothin good going on right now.
Well let me tell you something, my mind never conceived he would start his promise here on earth. My mind never conceived the tears of someone giving their life to Christ would choke me up. My mind never conceived a beautiful woman would actually say “I do” or me even wanting to be married. My mind never conceived that I would walk into a door with two beautiful girls saying “Daddy’s home!” My mind never conceived I’d be finding so much joy in writing emails about the word of God in corporate America.
I don’t want to take from this awesome place in Heaven but God is great, and wants to bless you even now in areas our worldly mind hasn’t even thought of… yet, he still has this place in Heaven he has prepared for those that love him. Don’t fool yourself into thinking you have to wait in line for this verse. Open your eyes and look around you and see the things God is already doing for you here on earth.
Happy Friday everyone!
