Hebrews 11:16 Instead, They Were Longing For A Better Country--A Heavenly One. Therefore God Is Not Ashamed To Be Called Their God, For He Has Prepared A City For Them.
When we are in pain we long for better times. Quite often, we can long to return to a better time we enjoyed in the past. Like those people in the verse above, we long for a heavenly city. Our longing for a heavenly city is exceeded only by the city God has prepared for us. We cannot imagine the beauty and wonder of what God has made for us. The human mind might try to grasp the magnitude of God and God's heaven, but we cannot grasp His reality in full measure. The Lord has prepared a city just for us. He knows what we go through each moment. God knows the depth of our pain. In His new city, soon to be our new city, we shall never hurt again.
