We set our eyes not on what we see but on what we cannot see. What we see will last only a short time, but what we cannot see will last forever. — 2 Corinthians 4:18
Jesus tells us to “Seek first the kingdom of God” (Matthew 6:33). This is His invitation to us. Set your hearts on your home.
In His plan, it’s all about the King and His kingdom. He wrote the script, built the sets, directs the actors, and knows the final act — an everlasting kingdom.
And this is [God’s] plan: At the right time, He will bring everything together under the authority of Christ — everything in heaven and on earth. — Ephesians 1:10
Reach for it!
The journey home is nice, but the journey is not the destination.
Those who are content with nothing more than joy in the journey are settling for too little satisfaction. Our hearts tell us there is more to this life than this life. We, like E.T., lift bent fingers to the sky. We may not know where to point, but we know not to call this world our home.
God… has planted eternity in the human heart. — Ecclesiastes 3:11
In God’s narrative, life on earth is but the beginning: the first letter of the first sentence in the first chapter of the great story God is writing with your life.
I want to encourage us today that this world is not our home for we are only passing through. Many times we question our situation and that of others, but it is God who knows best and can deliver to the uttermost. In all our ways we are to acknowledge our God and let Him direct our paths. God is good and a consuming fire. Therefore, watch your steps for they are ordered by the Lord.
