My grandson loves whatever he is doing now. Wherever he is now, he wants to stay. Whatever he is occupied with now, he wants to stay occupied with. Moving on to the next thing is never what he wants to do, even if the next thing is good.
A child in the womb has no idea that there is another world “out there”. All the child knows is the sound of Mama’s heartbeat, the muffled voices, the swish of blood through veins and nourishment provided without effort or thought. There’s not even the effort of breathing. The child would not have a point of reference to understand, even if “out there” was described.
Do you think that’s why the Bible says “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man what God has prepared for those who love Him.” (I Cor. 2:9)? How can one describe the next thing to one who has no concept of anything that wonderful?
Is this why “without faith it is impossible to please Him”? My grandson protests and resists when it’s time for the next thing. I understand that is because he is content with this thing. It takes faith to trust in the adult pressuring him forward.
If you are part of the Christian community, no doubt you have heard the prophets and the watchmen saying that a change is coming, especially to America. The harbingers are there. Americans are comfortable. We enjoy our conveniences. We don’t want a change. Just let me stay with this thing. Not yet, we say. Not yet!
The womb will open into the next thing. We will be given more responsibility, and effort will be required. But oh, what we will learn! What we will see! What we will do!
