Preparing for the Future

Behold, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind. (Isaiah 65:17)

Working towards our future is a great thing to do. We need to be prepared for future successes with career, family, and retirement. It is wise to work on these things. While it is wise to prepare for our future on earth, how much wiser is it to prepare for our real future in heaven?

I believe life is a preparation plan for us for heaven. We are given tools and opportunities to practice them here on earth to prepare us for eternal living. God will be creating a new place for us to live forever and former things will not be remembered or come to mind, I think because our new place will be so awesome, we just won’t care about most things we leave behind, only the eternal things will matter.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for your promise of heaven and all things will be created new by your hand. I pray that I can prepare for the eternal life…the real future. Amen

Faith tip: In all you do today, discern which is for your earthly future and heavenly future. How do they balance out in your life?
