The act of speculation has become an art form over the last week or so. Many well-grounded individuals have become instant speculators as they have given much time contemplating and considering a question: What if?
What if I win the lottery? This question is followed by comments about the muscle car that would be bought; the dream home that would be purchased; and, the exquisite once in a lifetime vacation that would be taken.
Let’s be honest, the odds of winning is just 1 in 175,223,510, so it is a mighty big what if. Still though, the imagination of people has run wild.
There are some things that are so absolutely wonderful they are beyond the comprehension of our weak and frail minds. Paul spoke of this in I Corinthians 2: No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined the things that God has prepared for those who love him.
Regardless of how much energy and effort we exert, Paul says our imaginations find heaven to be unfathomable.
That last word in the sentence above comes from the word “fathom,” and it is defined as a unit of measurement that is equal to 6 feet. A fathom is used when a person is trying to ascertain the depth of water. When it comes to the subject of heaven, the depth and the wonders of glory land cannot be ascertained—only speculated about and imagined!
Whatever peace you can imagine, or joy, or love, or anything else you might think of, it isn’t even close to what it will really be like when we are in heaven with Jesus. Even the Apostle John said that heaven was more than he could imagine: We are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet been revealed. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him . . .
