Heaven Is Waiting For You

“Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the LORD forever” (Psalm 23:6 NLT).

God says, “I’ve got this great life planned for you and surely goodness and mercy will follow you through it, but that’s not all of it! I’ve got something planned at the end!”

David explains how God connects yesterday and today with tomorrow, when he says, “…and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” In effect, David ends his psalm by saying, “We’re going to heaven!” With God it just keeps getting better and better; the best is yet to come.  

Paul says it like this, “For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down—when we die and leave these bodies—we will have a home in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands” (2 Corinthians 5:1 NLT).

How long is forever going to last? Forever! Someday your body is going to die, but you aren’t! Your body is going to end but that’s not going to be the end of you. You’re going to live forever in one of two places—heaven or hell. We were made to last forever, and we will spend eternity in heaven or hell.

Why are Christians confident about the future? “We are always confident, even though we know that as long as we live in these bodies we are not at home with the Lord. Yes, we are fully confident, and we would rather be away from these bodies, for then we will be at home with the Lord” (2 Corinthians 5:6,8 NLT).

You’re going to die someday and, if you’ve accepted Christ, then you’re going to go to heaven. You’ll be released from pain, from sorrow, from suffering, from depression, and from fear.

God removes all our sorrows, “…and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. For the old world and its evils are gone forever” (Revelation 21:4 NLT).
