The Light Daily Devotional – Heaven is our Home
Focus: Heaven is our Home
WORD FOR TODAY
The fact that we see people most especially our loved ones dying at a point in time signifies that we do not truly belong here. We are but strangers here, heaven is our home!
“For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself. Philippians 3.20-21 NKJV
Life is given to prepare us for eternity. We are created to fulfil God’s purpose. Hence, every man should be ready to go after the purpose is fulfilled. Do not be too attached to the earth because you don’t belong here. The fact that God is your creator, Heaven is your Home!
Earth is a desert dream. When danger and sorrow stand round you on every hand and the tempest rage, wild wintry blast; do not forget that soon they shall be over, because short is your pilgrimage. You shall reach home at last, if you live to please God and do His will; Heaven is your fatherland, Heaven is your home.
There at our Saviour’s side, we shall be glorified, we shall rest together with those who had gone before us. Therefore, we need not murmur; whatever our earthly lot may be. Let us travel on with patience, having the assurance that we shall surely stand at the Lord’s right hand: Heaven is our fatherland, Heaven is our home.
+ Will you make Heaven? Is Heaven truly your Home?
Prayer: Lord! I will not miss my Home, Heaven, at last, is my portion in Jesus name. Amen
Emphasis: Heaven is our fatherland, Heaven is our Home!
Have a Spirit-filled Thursday!
