Boring

They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. (Revelation 22:4)

I imagine that for some of us attention deficit folks the idea that heaven is all about being with God just seems a bit boring.  And yet, this is at the core of what heaven is all about.  Yes, heaven is a place where we have new bodies, all knowledge, and the streets are paved with gold.  Yet, all that dims compared to the amazing fact that we will be with God.  Forever.

If that still sounds just a bit boring to you, may I suggest something?  God’s heart is not only that we will spend the future with Him, but He very much wants to be a part of our life here and now. He is the One who wants to walk with you through the valley of the shadow of death.  He is the One who wants to take you to the Rock that is higher than you.  He is the One who longs to be your strength and shield.  He is not only the awesome, majestic, powerful, Creator of the Universe, He is also the lover of your soul.  He knows you intimately and longs for you to know Him just as intimately.

If heaven sounds boring, might I suggest you make it your prayer today to know God better.  Tell Him you want to know more about Him.  Spend time with Him. Tell Him you wish to walk with Him.  You will find that heaven will be anything but boring.
