Heaven our Hope
“say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, he will come with vengeance; with divine retribution he will come to save you.” Isaiah 35:4 (NIV)
This life will weigh you down with burdens of hopelessness, but find hope in the soon promised return of the Savior. Despair may seem to wash away your positive expectation for the future, but remember that this world is merely temporal, this world is not your home, and that is why the Holy Spirit seeks to remind you that Heaven is nearer than you know.
All the hopes and joys of our salvation are found in the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is our deliverance, the end of sin and it suppression, by it we are ultimately saved, and are forever united with our Savior, and reunited with our loved ones who have gone before us.
Let’s pray today to remind ourselves that we are merely passing through the pains of earth to our eternal home.
