Look Heavenward!

For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he ponders all his paths. (Prov. 5:21) 

God is exacting in His knowledge. . . . Not one detail escapes His attention. . . . He knows everything about us. We are an open book before Him. Furthermore, He is immutably faithful. And yet He deliberately surprises us with difficult assignments, premature or unexpected deaths, lost jobs, and disappointing circumstances along the journey, even while were in the nucleus of His will. Let's face it, it's a mystery. . . . 

Wherever you are in this journey called life, wherever you may be employed, wherever you may be in your domestic situation, wherever you may be in your age, your health, or your lifestyle, God may be preparing you for a great surprise in order to find you faithful. Rather than running from Him, let me suggest the opposite: run toward Him. . . . Look heavenward and realize that this arrangement is sovereignly put together for your good and for His glory. 

The Mystery of God's Will 

Millions of people around the world who are in Christ are heaven-bound. In the process of being heaven-bound, our eyes have to be looking heavenward. All of us as Christians have to be looking heavenward. The prize that awaits us is not here on earth. It is in heaven. No matter what it looks like for you at this present moment, keep looking heavenward. Never stop looking heavenward my friend. 

Jesus has told us in His Word that He has a place prepared for us. Isn't that encouraging? Isn't that something that is worthwhile to keep our eyes on? It is for that reason and so much more why we live our lives here on earth the way we do. We want to live our lives in such a manner here on earth that not only pleases God, but will bring glory to His name. God has provided us with the life, the resources, and the passion to reach out to as many people around the world who are in desperate need to see what we as Christians see. My dear friends, I strongly encourage you in Jesus' name to not only look heavenward yourself, but to encourage others around you to do the same. Tell them why you long to see them in heaven and explain to them that Jesus has prepared a special place for them when they surrender their lives to Jesus as their Lord and Savior. With Jesus coming soon, now is the best time for us to be looking heavenward. Wouldn't you agree with me? Be encouraged! God is so good to us! Amen! 

Thank you so much for reading this far my friends! May God continue to bless you and keep you in Jesus' mighty name! JESUS LOVES YOU AND SO DO I!!!!. . . . :-).
