I had not given much thought to there being no ocean in heaven until Lynn Gilmore pointed it out to me. It’s stated in the above passage. A little book given to her by our mutual friend Sharon Cranford stated there will be no need for salt in heaven. Heaven needs no preservatives. It is that perfect place created for us to forever be with our LORD.
There will be fresh living water, a river flowing through heaven. Can you imagine the beauty? There is something so comforting about the sight and sound of a river. I have pictures of bodies of water all over my house. If I will take the time to gaze upon them; they remind me to “Be still and know that He is God.”
Heaven is the place God has gone to prepare for us. Many people speak of their mansion in heaven. I just know we will be given everything we have need of. I’m not concerned about my house in heaven; I’m just thrilled to get to come face to face with my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Can you imagine seeing Him for the very first time? It leaves me speechless.
We have the sweetest relationship with our Savior now. He is with us always. We hear His still, small voice and yet to think about being with Him for eternity is so amazing. I’ve heard the statement made about people who are so heavenly minded they are of no earthly good.
I believe we should be heavenly minded enough to keep our eyes on the prize of Christ Jesus, our Redeemer.
Prayer in Motion:
Lord, I do love the sound of the earthly ocean; however, your river that makes glad the city of God will be so beautiful that we won’t even miss anything we had on the earth. I thank You for the gift of the ocean here on earth but look forward to the day of seeing Your heavenly river.
