The Architect & Builder - Daily in Your Presence - May 9

Day 130



For he was looking forward to the city with foundations,
whose architect and builder is God.
Hebrews 11:10


My child, you won't believe the surprises I have waiting for you. Your finite mind could not grasp the beauty of the home I've designed especially for you. I've pored over every detail. Heaven is not a figment of your imagination. It is the reality of Mine. I should know. I built it with My own hands. And I want your heart to reflect the kind of beauty that heaven holds for you someday. Trust Me. I'll keep renovating your "home" often.

You've prepared not just a beautiful home for me, Lord, but an entire city. Our blueprints could not compare to Your master plan. Strong foundations, elegant mansions, streets of gold aglow with Your light - You are the architect and builder of heaven. I can't wait, Lord.


Heaven is God's way of saying, "Welcome home."
