John 14: 1-4 — “Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. And you know the way where I am going.”
We have a new year coming at us at a typical high rate of speed. And I was wondering, "what do we want from God?"
Each year that passes has both taken away and added to our lives. And I have no doubt that the next year will be the same. At the very least we can be assured that the speed with which it goes by will be the same or greater, while at the same time realizing that each year is never truly the same because God never leaves us in the same place, if we are in the practice of saying yes to Him. He is always moving us forward.
Onward Christian Soldier; onward. Always pressing on towards the high calling of God. Towards a place that Christ has gone on before us and prepared for us. And what he has prepared for us is so supernatural, so completely outside our ability to imagine. He has prepared for us a room in the house of God!
Home. Our true home. A home for which our spirits have been hungering; since the split second Christ burst into our hearts.
It is the only home that can grant us a full peace. The only home that can bring us full satisfaction. It is the only home where we will know God for who He is, and experience Him in the supernatural relationship for which we were created.
Join us at Lighthouse as we take the next step towards a future that has been prepared for us by the Lord of the House.
