So while I was reading tonight's NT selection, I noticed that God had superceded the previous way of dealing with His children, and instituted a new covenant. At first, God cared about us so much that He led us "by the hand". But we were stupid and rebelled. So then, His new covenant puts His law and His presence in our hearts and minds directly, so that we would have no need to tell people about Him, because everyone would know Him already. That's awesome.
But then I thought... what if there is something even better coming? What if He's going to give us a "next gift" that is even better than what He's given us so far?
And I realized that He tells us that He IS going to do that very thing. He says "eye has not seen, nor ear has heard, what God is preparing for those who love Him."
Wow. We have something amazing to look forward to.
Keep walking that long, hard road my friends. Because there is something truly amazing ahead.
Thank You, God, for blowing our minds.
