TODAY'S DEVOTION:    may 05, 2020


"He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end."

Ecclesiastes 3:11 (KJV)



God has ‘set eternity in the hearts of men.’ This means that we can never be completely satisfied with earthly pleasures and pursuits.

C.S. Lewis one said that ‘if I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.’ We are pilgrims passing through to a better, richer, more beautiful and more lasting place (1 Peter 2:11). We are indeed made for eternity.

Because we are created in God’s image (Genesis 1:36), we have a spiritual thirst that physical entities will never satiate. We have eternal value in God’s eyes, were made for friendship with Him and nothing but being in the eternal God’s presence can fully satisfy us. Our hearts will be restless till they find their rest in Him.

God has built in each of us a yearning for the kind of perfect world that can only be found in His perfect rule.

He has given us a glimpse of the perfection of His creation. But it is only a brief glimpse, the best is yet to come. And every believer who longs to be with the Father, yearns for that day when He returns, and we will spend eternity with Him in that beautiful new creation (Revelation 21:1-4).


‘Heavenly Father, favor me with faith, hope and courage to live amongst people who do not know You. Help me to long for nothing on this earth as much as I long for Your return and my eternal home with You. I pray to You, in Jesus’ Mighty Name, AMEN.
