Topic: What Heaven Will Be Like [Billy Graham Devotional 21 August 2019]
And there shall be no more curse; but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him. — Revelation 22:3
The Bible indicates that Heaven will be a place of great understanding and knowledge of things that we never learned down here. Sir Isaac Newton, when an old man, said to one who praised his wisdom, “I am as a child on the seashore picking up a pebble here and a shell there, but the great ocean of truth still lies before me.”
And Thomas Edison once said, “I do not know one millionth part of one percent about anything.” Many of the mysteries of God—the heartaches, trials, disappointments, tragedies, and the silence of God in the midst of suffering—will be revealed in Heaven.
Prayer for the day:
All the questions will be answered, loving Father, when I take my place in heaven to praise You.
