Even More…

Just came back from a ‘best friends’ trip. The Biltmore Estate was one destination. Do you know it has 250 rooms? Forget the square footage, it has 4 acres of floor space – 35 bathrooms.

As we wandered the spectacular grounds, and climbed up and down the many stairs, peering into various rooms the thought came to me: “In my Father’s house are many rooms” (John 14:2a NIV)

For a second let go of the hold this life has on you and daydream about the place God has in store for His children. Nothing on earth compares.

When our someday comes where we say goodbye here – our hello there will take our breath away. It won’t be a work in progress, it’s all ready for us. “if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you.” (John 14:2b NIV)

A place just for me, just for you. The One who knows us more intimately than we know ourselves, the One who loves us more than we love ourselves (think about that) – He has our homecoming all ready.

We’ll need a GPS for our trip – a God Positioning System. There’s a book with road maps: the Bible. There’s route guidance: the Holy Spirit. Best of all there’s Someone who will, in the end, take us there. “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with Me that you also may be where I am.” (John 14:3 NIV)

So in the uncertainties of daily life – when we make wrong turns, when roadblocks come out of nowhere, when potholes jolt us – hold on. Remember Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life – real life. Not this temporary earth suit, not this pain and sorrow stricken world – but the forever abundant life.

It will take eternity to see all God has, because there will always be more. In our Father’s house there are many rooms, even more than the Biltmore.
