“What no eye has seen, nor ear heard,

nor the heart of man imagined,

what God has prepared for those who love him”

1Corinthians 2:9

Take the most extravagant gift that you have ever received, the happiest moment of your life, or your wildest dream and visualize them all combined into one enormous bundle of satisfaction and joy; then, consider that this is just a shadow of the gifts that God has already prepared to give to his children.

There is another important difference between the things and even the moments that we can imagine from our lives and what God is giving to us, God’s gifts have a permanence and a depth of value that is unique. The Lord gives us adoption into his family, salvation from death, the ever present guidance and support of the Creator of everything, and much more.

The Father wants us to open up our hearts to his Spirit and take in the tremendous gift that he gives us. Every moment of every day we have the mind and the heart of God present in us, and we have the ear of God to hear all that is on our hearts; then, we have the hand of God to move away every obstacle that tries to defeat us or hold us back.
