Verse Of Today
But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city. – Hebrews 11:16
We who belong to the LORD are content to dwell in an earthly country for a time according to God’s will. But we are ultimately satisfied with the things of the world. We must seek Heavenly things, setting our affections on the things of God. We look for a Heavenly country and that city “not made with hands” but built by God Himself for His people.
You, Lord God, have prepared for us a city to dwell in that will not pass away. You will dwell with us as our God, and we as Your people, on the new earth for all eternity. Let us not be consumed and controlled by any earthly hope. Give us perspective on our lives that we might know which things are most important in the light of our future home and of the fact that this world is passing away.
