Strength and joy in his dwelling place.”
1 Chronicles 16:27 (NIV)
“Splendor and majesty flow out of him,
Strength and joy fill his place.”
1 Chronicles 16:27 (MSG)
As we read about God and heaven, we find ourselves awestricken by the way our future home will look. We cannot fathom the beauty and the brightness God’s home will radiate.
Heaven will exude power; for all who enter. Joy (gladness) will wash over us shortly after we enter the gates. We will have this joy because:
*We will be with Jesus.
* We will be rid of pain.
* No one there will be suffering.
* We will not shed tears.
* We will find our mansions ready.
As a child of God, I sometimes get frustrated with the events that transpire in our world. I find myself longing for a better world. After a while, I eventually conclude that God is in control of all those circumstances. We should be very thankful that God has all things under his power.
When we go into God’s presence we pour out our hearts to Him. We listen for His words of comfort, guidance or love. We come away filled with awe. He refreshes us with His presence. We praise Him for Who He Is.
