June 20–God’s Thumbprint on our Hearts

…God has set eternity in the hearts of men;

yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

Ecclesiastes 3:11

Wow. Just think about that for a minute: God has set eternity in each of our hearts.

God purposefully—fearfully and wonderfully—formed each one of us with His Thumbprint: a longing for and a deep awareness of eternity…of God…of Life–now and forever.

We can’t even begin to fathom what God has planned and done from the beginning of time and, already counts as accomplished, for the end. God is awesome and outrageous in wonder. And GOD is ETERNAL and ETERNITY is found only in Him!

Although we cannot fully comprehend or even begin to imagine what our eternal life will look like or be like with our God, we do know the WHO: our God–the Lord Jesus Christ…the HOW: through the death and resurrection of Jesus…and the RESULT: eternal life lived with our God in His eternal home.

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.

I am the way and the truth and the life.

No one comes to the Father except through me.”

John 14:1-6 

God made each one of us as His special creation. We each have our own unique set of finger prints, thumbprints included, that matches no one else who has ever lived, or ever will live, on this earth.

It is God’s own Thumbprint on our hearts—that deep imprint of yearning within us for eternity and eternal life with our God—that will ONLY be matched by and fulfilled through the saving, transforming, eternal-life-giving love of our Lord Jesus Christ.

God’s Thumbprint–eternity set in our hearts. And our God has reached out His own nail-scarred, holy hand to take us Home!

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
