But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” 1 Corinthians 2:9
You watched videos; you read tourist guides; you talked with neighbors who had been there before; and you planned an itinerary that included every site of your destination. But when you returned home and your neighbors asked, “How was the trip?” your answer even surprised you: “We had no idea! It was beyond anything we ever expected!”
If it’s possible to gather unlimited amounts of information about a destination on earth, yet still be surprised when we get there, how much more likely are we to be surprised by what we find in heaven? When Paul wrote 1 Corinthians 2:9, he wasn’t specifically referring to heaven; he likely had both temporal and eternal blessings in mind. His point was this: The mind of man is incapable of knowing and discovering all that the mind of God contains. His ways are as far above our ways as the heavens are above the earth (Isaiah 55:8-9).
If you ever think you have God figured out, think again. His love and plans for His children, both now and in eternity, are beyond our imagination.
