The Upcoming Move

“Lord, you alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing.” (Psalm 16:5a NLT)

We are, at present, contemplating an upcoming move. And as I think upon all that such a move will entail, I become more and more aware of what will need to be packed and what will need to find a new home before we leave. For when we move upon this earth, we take things with us. And often, we move lots and lots of things with us. We pack up clothes and shoes, beds and bedding, dishes and cutlery, shovels and hoes, wheelbarrows and toys, books and files and a multitude of much more, including children and pets and trailers and even livestock. It is a really big deal for most of us to make an earthly move.

So, when I read today’s verse I was reminded about another move. Our last move on this earth which takes us to our heavenly home. And when we die, we take nothing at all with us to our new home, other than our souls. And yet, when we arrive, we will have everything! For the Lord is our inheritance.

“The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may share in his glory.” (Romans 8:16,17 NIV)

Jesus is our cup of blessing not only here as we walk and move upon this earth but forever in heaven when we make that final move to be with Him eternally. And in Christ, we have all things. We will need nothing more. He has gone ahead to prepare a place for us. A place where our hearts will overflow with joy and thanksgiving at an inheritance that we cannot now, even begin to grasp or understand. For we will have the privilege of never coming to the end of knowing God, who Himself, is never ending.

May we thus, if we have not already done so, trust in Christ as our Lord and Saviour, forgiver of our sins and restorer of our fellowship with God our Father. So that when the time comes for our final move, we shall have no fear, only peace that passes understanding that all shall be ready for our coming.

Prayer: Thank You Lord Jesus that You are our inheritance, You are our cup of blessing. Thank You that we are heirs of God, co-heirs with You to share in Your glory forever. May our hearts each be prepared and ready for our final move from this earth and the place You have prepared for us. In Christ’s name we pray. Amen.
