Ecclesiastes 3:11 – Think Forever Today

“He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also put eternity in their hearts, but no one can discover the work God has done from beginning to end.”


We live in a perplexing in-between. Already justified, but not yet glorified. Already sons and daughters, but not yet residing with the Father. Already longing for eternity, but not yet able to fully comprehend its magnitude.


The Lord has inscribed eternity onto the building blocks of humanity, and yet, because of our in-between-ness, “forever” lingers in our periphery, eluding a solid grasp. But what may at first seem a frustrating paradox can actually drive us toward hope! C.S. Lewis puts it this way:


“If I find in myself desires which nothing in this world can satisfy, the only logical explanation is that I was made for another world.” (Mere Christianity, 1942)


Our instinctive inclination toward eternity is a comfort and confirmation that this world is not our final destination. Even in our eager expectation, we can rest in the knowledge that eternity is our inheritance. We need only to wait and see it.


Remember this today: you are an eternal being created in the image of God, and one day, not so long from now, He will reveal to you the full majesty of forever.
