Devotions based on Mark Buchanan’s book, Spiritual Rhythms
God has set eternity in our hearts and it stirs our deepest longings. It’s like a homing device right in the middle of us. If you are wondering why you are restless it could be your “homing” devise triggering. Sometimes we mistake our heavenly desire for earthly ones and think we need a new marriage, new job, new church etc. We can fantasize that moving on, and finding something new and beautiful will remedy the ache in side. It might for a short time but then we will be disappointed as it will leave us aching more and more. Eternity is in our hearts. God’ planted a seed of heaven inside of us. We can’t fill it with things but rather on things unseen. The author says he doesn’t think anyone is in danger of being so heavenly minded that they are no earthly good, but rather they have become so earthly minded they are not useful to heaven or earth. So let us fix our eyes on Him and eternity that is awaiting us!
