As I was enjoying the beauty of the small gadget today, I marvelled at what man could do to make things that are lovely or just plain wonderful to behold.
And as thought on these things, I began to think of the magnificence of God in comparison. First of all, He's never-ending. He always has been. We can look at the sky and see what He's created for us here but we don't really know what His home looks like.
I can spend hours in a museum looking at the paintings there--the great works of art man can create but I am only looking at what a creation of the Creator was able to create.
The Bible says that Jesus is preparing a place for us. I believe the place He is preparing will be so far above what any man can do or imagine we will be transfixed with the absolute beauty that surrounds us. There will be sights so amazing that even though we can read descriptions of some of them in the Bible we can't really picture God's rendition. (For example: Read the 1st chapter of Ezekiel.)
Someone posted something on line once that amazed me. They said that heaven would be boring "just floating around on clouds" and that they didn't like white much anyway. That statement would be amusing if it weren't so sad.
We have a God who is the greatest Designer of all--the One who gave Michaelangelo and Da Vinci every little bit of talent they posessed without losing any of His own and He is preparing a place for us! The only reason a person could even begin to think that heaven might be boring is because they can't even begin to comprehend it.
But then...to go beyond that indescribable beauty...try to imagine actually seeing and being in the presence of Jesus--the Creator Himself.
Nothing will compare.
Like the words from one of my favorite songs says: "When I look upon His face. The One who saved me by His grace..." How can we think of anything more glorious than Jesus Himself?
So, friends, don't ever worry about what you will do in heaven or imagine that you will grow tired of it. It's just because our imaginations are limited that we think that way. But God's imagination knows no limit and one day we're going to be rejoicing with all our hearts, so glad to have made it through to His presence...everything else will just be the icing on the cake.
In 1 Corinthians 2:9, we are told: "What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man conceived, what God has prepared for those who love him," 1 Corinthians 2:10. "God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God."
So, though my physical eyes have not seen or heard, the Spirit in me searches the depths of God. That paintbrush dipped in the blood of Jesus has made a work of art in my heart--a work of art that could only be created by God. That is just the beginning of Heaven.
