What God Has Prepared for Those Who Love Him

But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

1 Corinthians 2:9

Whoever loves God will receive a very great reward. Our Heavenly Father is not stingy and what He has prepared for each of His children has no comparison with what we know. In 1 Corinthians 2:9 it says that He prepares things that eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man. What these words mean is that God has extraordinary things prepared for those who love Him. Everything we know, what we have seen, heard or thought is nothing compared to what we will receive from God.

From ancient times, humanity has wanted to classify the great works of construction that it has erected. Thus, several lists of the Seven Wonders of the World have been made. These have been considered as the seven wonders of the ancient world: the Great Pyramid of Giza, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Temple of Artemis, the Statue of Zeus in Olympia, the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, the Colossus of Rhodes and the Lighthouse of Alexandria . On 7 July 2007 (07/07/07) the new Seven Wonders of the World were announced in Lisbon, Portugal. These new wonders include Chichen Itza, in Mexico; The Coliseum of Rome, in Italy; The statue of Christ the Redeemer, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; The Great Wall of China; Machu Picchu, in Cuzco, Peru; Petra in Jordan, and the Taj Mahal in Accra, India.

And following the selections, on November 11, 2011 (11/11/11) the seven natural wonders of the world were announced: Mesa Mountain, in South Africa; Iguazu Falls and the Amazon, in South America; Ha-Long Bay in Vietnam; Jeju Island in South Korea; Komodo National Park in Indonesia, and the Port Princess Subterranean River in the Philippines.

In addition to the wonders of the world, UNESCO has declared World Heritage Sites to more than a thousand places in the world. Among these places are: the Monumental Complex of Cartagena, in Colombia; The Galápagos Islands, in Ecuador; the Nazca Lines, in Peru; The Palace of Versailles, in France; The Acropolis of Athens, Greece; The Norwegian Fjords; The Kremlin and Red Square in Moscow, Russia; The Grand Canyon of the Colorado in the United States, and the Sydney Opera House in Australia.

Certainly the eyes that see each of these places are impressed by its beauty or majesty. I have known a couple of those places, the Monumental Complex of Cartagena, in Colombia and Machu Picchu, in Peru. And indeed they are worth seeing. But none of this is comparable to the things God has prepared for those who love Him.

Revelation 21:10-14 gives us an idea of those things which the eye did not see prepared by God for those who love Him: And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal. Also she had a great and high wall with twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates, and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the west. Now the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. God bless you.
