UNFOLDING THE ETERNITY IN THE HEART OF MAN
NAS: 1 He has made everything [a]appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart; [b]yet so that man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end.
NKJV: 11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.
NIV: He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet[a] no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
What is eternity?
1. Infinite or unending time.
2. A state to which time has no application; timelessness.
God has finished the work of creation in 6th days, and since then all things we could ever think or imagine has be made in all. But each of what God has made have time and season to unfolds, it is set to be beautiful at the time of its unfolding. God’s assignment in our life has been finished from the beginning to the end, God is not doing the work of creation in any man’s life anymore, he has finished it from the beginning, that means what you will become or achieve in life has been finished and deposited in you while you are still in your mother’s womb and yet to be born into this world. Whatever comes to you as a desire, expectation or interest has been completely made available to you at the beginning of your life? We cannot fathom the eternity in our heart, we cannot fathom the unending time that has been set in the heart of man.
Every of our daily activities have been pre-programmed by God, what we do daily as we go by our daily assignment is the unfolding of what has already been pre-programmed by our maker (GOD). God has designed us to have everything we need in our life from the beginning our life is synonymous to a wrapped food that we cannot eat until it is unwrapped, we cannot enjoy what God has already done from the beginning to the end unless we find out how to unwrap the benefits of our existence. Our quest in life is to solve the puzzle of the wrapped food.
Also, all that God has done from the beginning to the end is synonymous to software; software cannot be beneficial to the user if it’s not activated and duly skilled by the user. That is if the user is not adequately skilled on how the software works it will not benefit the user, also if the user knows how it works and not activate it,; it’s still going be of no benefits to the user. God has pre-programmed our life for all the best that our life may require to live to its fullness but we need to be skilled on what god has given to us and also activate it.
The eternity in the heart of man cannot be fathom because we have not positioned ourselves to be skilled for activation process of what God has done in us from the beginning to the end.
Most believer skills have lost its efficacy, which is why we struggle to unfolds the eternity that has been set in our heart. God will not set an eternity in our heart if he does not want us to unfolds it, Deut29vs29 29 The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.
How can I Sharpen my Believer’s Skill to unfolds eternity that God has set in my Heart
1.Praying Skills: Jer 29vs12-14: 12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.14 And I will be found of you, saith the Lord: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the Lord; and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive.
Prayer is a way offered by the Holy Spirit to reach God. It is not merely a question or an entreaty. It is a skilled that we need to sharpen so that we unfolds the eternity in our heart, prayer is a strategy to seek and search for the eternity that God has done from the beginning.
Jeremiah 33:3: 3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.
The eternity in our heart is unknown to us despite the fact it’s in us, but if we sharpen our praying skills, God will show us the unknown within us. Our eternity is great and might, our divine composition is great and mighty but the only way to unfolds this greatness is to sharpen our praying skill…we have to become a praying machine.2. Praising Skills: Ps784 we will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the Lord, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done. Praise, according to the Scriptures, is an act of our will that flows out of an awe and reverence for our Creator. Praise gives glory to God and opens us up to a deeper union with Him. It turns our attention off of our problems and on the nature and character of God Himself.
As we focus our minds on God and proclaim His goodness, we reflect His glory back to Him. The results can fill you with peace and contentment (Isaiah 26:3) and transform your outlook on life. Another skills that we need to sharpen is our praising skills, in praise God reveals himself with clarity, he give us the understanding of thing that has been done that we have not yet seen Ps715 For thou art my hope, O Lord God: thou art my trust from my youth.6 By thee have I been Holden up from the womb: thou art he that took me out of my mother's bowels: my praise shall be continually of thee.7 I am as a wonder unto many; but thou art my strong refuge.8 Let my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honour all the day.
If we must unfolds the eternity in the heart of man, we have to learn to praise the one that set the eternity in our heart so that he can reveal to us what that is done but we are have not known.
3. Learning Skills/Studying Skills: Roman 15vs4: 4 For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. We need to deeply involve in study the word of God for us to receive clarity on what God has already been done in our life. The word of God is available for us to learn the proceeds on how eternity can be unfold from us, because everything written is written for our learning. Pss119vs8: 18 open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from your law.
What studying of God’s word does is to open our insight to the knowledge of God proceedings in unfolding the works of God that has been finished from the beginning in our life.
The eternity that God has set in our heart is simply our desire to become all that God has made us to be in this life and generation, to be able to come into the fullness of God wondrous works in our life, we have to understand the principle of sharpening our skills. Let work by rules of the software and the user, so that we can live and enjoy our life to fullness.
