I have prepared amazing things for those who love Me.
1 Corinthians 2:9 (WEB)
But as it is written,
“Things which an eye didn’t see, and an ear didn’t hear,
which didn’t enter into the heart of man,
these God has prepared for those who love him.”
When my wife and I host a birthday party or special event for our loved ones, there is a lot of preparation that goes into planning before hand. The meal, the decorations, the dessert and the gift are all given careful consideration because we want everything to be perfect. There is always a sense of excitement and anticipation as the big day approaches and we countdown to the celebration. I wonder if this is how God feels when He is preparing for us?
1 Corinthians 2:9 says that even in our wildest imagination we can't possibly fathom the amazing things that God has prepared for us. Verse 10 goes on to say that even though we can't grasp these amazing things in our own ability, God has chosen to reveal them to us by His Spirit.
My prayer today is that each one of us would ask the Holy Spirit to reveal more of the amazing things of the kingdom that our God and Father has prepared for us. May the Spirit of God give us power today to grasp how deep, how wide, how long and how high is His love for us in Jesus so that we might be filled to the full measure of the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:14-19)
20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. (NIV)
