What are you looking for?
Everyone is looking for something in life. Maybe it is a better job, more vacation, a good spouse. Maybe it is another kid, a boat, or a dream rifle. Everyone is looking for something in life. Most of the time people are looking for that which they believe will make them happy. Most people are looking for true happiness to come in this life.
We live in a wicked world and no matter what we do we can’t fully escape the wickedness. We can be content with what we have and yet still not be fully happy because of the evil that is in this world. Truth is, we will never find true and lasting happiness in this life.
So what are we looking for? Hebrews 11 is a chapter that tells of the great faith of many people in the Old Testament. This chapter tells us what they were looking for. Hebrews 11:10 says, “For he was looking forward to the city that has foundations, whose designer and builder is God.”
The people of faith in this chapter were willing to suffer, endure hardship, and even die because of their faith and trust in God. These people realized that this life is not capable of delivering what they were looking for. These people were looking for a city whose designer and builder is God. That is where true happiness lies. That is what we should be looking for. That is where our heart should be. We should through faith trust God looking to heaven knowing that He will deliver.
