Even now, God is busy preparing a place for the followers of Jesus to enjoy with Him forever.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Isaiah 65:17 - "Look! I am creating new heavens and a new earth, and no one will even think about the old ones anymore.
Read - Isaiah 65
Could it be that God is always ready to respond but we don’t always ask or ask rightly? Verse 1 teaches us about the power of prayer. How is your prayer life? If God awaits your prayer to hear your heart and then to speak to you and align your heart with His…what are we waiting for?
Lord, I want to be a prepared person for the place You are preparing for me!
Revelation 21-22 speak of this New Heaven and Earth with a bit more detail.
We were meant for more than this…the hurt, the sadness…these are all curses of the one main curse of sin found in Genesis 3. Focus on the last half of this chapter where God promises that a new people will be His people (verse 15 - Christians). Then he paints parts of an eternal picture where those new people will get to spend eternity with him without death and weeping. Lord, let it be! Are you ready? The invitation was sent and delivered to you by the blood of Jesus. Have you RSVP’d? That is the offer of being Mended by Christ and you won’t enter God’s presence without it.
