The last couple days I have been worried,
like really worried…
You see I heard a man say that when we get to heaven we will be surprised who is in heaven and who isn’t, and that ultimately God knows our hearts.
Immediately fear washed over me.
I started to think about my heart… what if it’s not pure? What if I don’t always want God’s glory? What if I don’t always desire His will? My heart is a filthy. At the best of times it’s an ugly mess. There’s no way I’ll be welcomed into the Kingdom if it’s based on my heart. I had zero assurance.
The reason honestly that I share this is because I now do have assurance that one day I will see my Savior face to face and I will spend eternity with Him forever… This is why:
Because through Jesus Christ’s I have been given salvation. He has washed me whiter than snow. I have been made right with God. My heart has been replaced with a new heart– a heart that is head over heels in love with the Lord. A heart that wants His will, His glory, above all.
I like the way the msg really makes this known…
“For here’s what I’m going to do: I’m going to take you out of these countries, gather you from all over, and bring you back to your own land. I’ll pour pure water over you and scrub you clean. I’ll give you a new heart, put a new spirit in you. I’ll remove the stone heart from your body and replace it with a heart that’s God-willed, not self-willed. I’ll put my Spirit in you and make it possible for you to do what I tell you and live by my commands. You’ll once again live in the land I gave your ancestors. You’ll be my people! I’ll be your God!”
Ezekiel 36:24-28 MSG
Amen! Praise the Lord that when prayers need to be answered in a speedy manner, He answers them almost instantly. I thank my God for this revelation and for the assurance we have been given that one day, real soon our Makers face we will see, and we will worship Him in Spirit and in truth right into eternity!
