The writer of Ecclesiastes made this profound statement: “He has set eternity in the human heart…” Paul David Tripp says that we are “hardwired” for eternity. Believers understand that our world was created perfectly, but because of sin it is now broken. We pray and work to make the brokenness better. But we also, deep inside, know that there is a better life awaiting after we leave this damaged world. If you don’t have that faith, pray for it. Talk to a trusted believer about it.
“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” (Hebrews 11:1)
“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”
