“For he [Abraham] was looking forward to the City with foundations, whose architect and builder is God.” (Hebrews 11:10)

Abraham enjoyed many blessings and accomplished many great things while being “present” and living on this planet. But he never allowed these blessings or activities to beguile him or divert his attention from his true destiny. He knew that this place was not his home.

“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Now the dwelling of God is with men, and He will live with them. They will be His people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.'” (Revelation 21:1-4)

“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.  But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your TREASURE is, there your HEART will be also.” (Matthew 6:19-21)

“Delight yourself in the LORD and He will give you the desires of your heart.” (Psalm 37:4)

It seems to me that this is a journey many of us are on: When we set Jesus as the delightful center of our lives, then He begins to change who we are and what we want (as we learn to abide in Him), until our former, natural priorities and desires (the “old man’s” game plan) change and are transformed into His priorities and desires.

And when this happens — when we want what He wants — then we whole-heartedly embrace the delightful adventure and call that He has for our lives.

“Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee,
God of glory, Lord of Love!
Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee,
Opening to the sun above!
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness,
Drive the dark of doubt away.
Giver of immortal gladness,
Fill us with the Light of day!

All Thy works with joy surround Thee!
Earth and Heaven reflect Thy rays!
Stars and angels sing around Thee,
Center of unbroken praise!
Field and forest, vale and mountain,
Flowery meadow, flashing sea!
Singing bird and flowing fountain,
Call us to rejoice in thee!!!!!!!”
