God's Guarantee

Hebrews 11:13

These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having

seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed

that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.

Have you ever known the frustration of canceled hotel reservations?

Sometimes even the "guaranteed late arrival" system isn't foolproof. You

hustle through two airports, fumble with bags all the way, grab a rental car,

drive through unfamiliar territory, and finally make it to the hotel, only to

hear the clerk say "I'm sorry, but no rooms are available".

When Jesus told His disciples about His impending departure, He

gave them special assurance for the future: "In My Father's house are

many mansions: If it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare

a place for you" (John 14:2). This promise was not for the disciples only;

it is for everyone who accepts Jesus as Savior and trusts Him for salvation.

Your name is written in the Lamb's Book of Life, and it cannot be

erased (Rev. 21:27). Your reservation in heaven can never be changed, and

the place Jesus is making ready is custom-made just for you. In fact, you are

supposed to consider heaven your real home; earth is a mere way station.

Hebrews 11:13 notes that the heroes of faith regarded themselves as

" strangers and pilgrims on the earth" because they were so focused on the

end of their temporary journey here. You have God's guarantee: no mansion

on earth can compare to the eternal home waiting for you.

Dear father, thank You for the guarantee for a place reserved for me for

eternity. I'm on my way! amen
