Scripture for Today: I Corinthians 2:9 “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.'”
The colors of fall can be breathtaking! And the colors in God’s pallet continually amaze me. His use of color is bold and startling. I have trouble putting red and orange together but not Him! Our God is creative and masterful with color. And how amazing it is that He should take such creative care in something so temporal. It makes me wonder about the colors that are eternal in Heaven. As He will be the only source of light there, it’s difficult to imagine what different hues and new colors He will create!
Today’s verse speaks of our limitations in understanding what is prepared for us in Heaven. Our earthly senses and even our imaginations cannot fully grasp the colors, light and sounds of our eternal home. But the passage goes on to say that believers can have some spiritual understanding because we have residing in us God’s Spirit. Our physical senses and our mental imaginings can only go so far in understanding spiritual truth. We need the revelation of His Spirit. It is because of His Spirit we can understand what He has so freely given us (verse 12).
So much of what He has so freely given to me is in my future. But He has painted my world with the beautiful colors of His love now! I see that color with spiritual eyes. Surely, the color of His faithfulness is a bright cobalt blue. And the color of His forgiveness? It must be dazzling white!
Lord, heighten my spiritual senses to see and hear and feel all You have given to me today!
