However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived”– the things God has prepared for those who love him– 1 Corinthians 2:9 NIV
Our verse today has two applications. First, the things that God provides for us on this earth., are spiritually discerned. What greater gift has God given us than forgiveness of sins through the sacrifice of the cross. Not only that, but God works through us and changes us into His character. We have joy and peace because of the grace of God. We have the assurance that whatever this world throws at us, God is with us and will get us through it. He is our redeemer and deliverer. Second, what beauty beyond imagination is what God is preparing for us in Heaven. We have joy today knowing that we have an eternal home waiting for us when Jesus returns to take us home with Him.
An unbeliever would say that this is just a dream. It does not exist and will not happen. However, believers in Jesus have spiritual insight given to us by the Holy Spirit through faith that we know that God’s word is true, and we will see Him face-to-face one day.
