The most exciting aspect of heaven is the we will see the object of our faith: Jesus. Street of gold, and

5 reasons why Heaven can not and will not be boring.

We shall then be with Him…above all, we shall be with Him. One of the greatest deaths is boredom. We will go wherever our thoughts are. Successful people have a purpose for living. We have to fight getting bored. We may become distracted and slothful in pursuing our walk with God. We perceive our surroundings by how we perceive God and our time spent with Him.

What is life? Life is eternal. Conception brings eternity to everyone who is conceived. We need to be honest with our definition. Is it something we live or just something we confess. Our empathy causes us to focus on the situation, but our purpose is to bring it before the Lord. We start in the morning to bring our needs before the Lord. Direct our thoughts towards Him. We need to fellowship with Him in the need. The Word of God defines life for us.

Isaiah 40:12-28

12 Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand,
    or with the breadth of his hand marked off the heavens?
Who has held the dust of the earth in a basket,
    or weighed the mountains on the scales
    and the hills in a balance?
13 Who can fathom the Spirit[d] of the Lord,
    or instruct the Lord as his counselor?
14 Whom did the Lord consult to enlighten him,
    and who taught him the right way?
Who was it that taught him knowledge,
    or showed him the path of understanding?

1Surely the nations are like a drop in a bucket;
    they are regarded as dust on the scales;
    he weighs the islands as though they were fine dust.
16 Lebanon is not sufficient for altar fires,
    nor its animals enough for burnt offerings.
17 Before him all the nations are as nothing;
    they are regarded by him as worthless
    and less than nothing.

1With whom, then, will you compare God?
    To what image will you liken him?
19 As for an idol, a metalworker casts it,
    and a goldsmith overlays it with gold
    and fashions silver chains for it.
20 A person too poor to present such an offering
    selects wood that will not rot;
they look for a skilled worker
    to set up an idol that will not topple.

21 Do you not know?
    Have you not heard?
Has it not been told you from the beginning?
    Have you not understood since the earth was founded?
22 He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth,
    and its people are like grasshoppers.
He stretches out the heavens like a canopy,
    and spreads them out like a tent to live in.
23 He brings princes to naught
    and reduces the rulers of this world to nothing.
24 No sooner are they planted,
    no sooner are they sown,
    no sooner do they take root in the ground,
than he blows on them and they wither,
    and a whirlwind sweeps them away like chaff.

25 “To whom will you compare me?
    Or who is my equal?” says the Holy One.
26 Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens:
    Who created all these?
He who brings out the starry host one by one
    and calls forth each of them by name.
Because of his great power and mighty strength,
    not one of them is missing.

27 Why do you complain, Jacob?
    Why do you say, Israel,
“My way is hidden from the Lord;
    my cause is disregarded by my God”?
28 Do you not know?
    Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
    the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
    and his understanding no one can fathom.

Revelation 22:3-5The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. There will be no more night.They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever.

Psalm 16:11 You make known to me the path of life;
    you will fill me with joy in your presence,
    with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

What exists in Gods presence is fullness of joy. As a born again believer, to be bored is our own decision. Heaven is not boring because God is not boring. Fun is an experience with our emotions, but joy goes deep into our spirit. We exhibit happiness and joy. The renewing of our spirit will renew our emotions as well. Spiritual warfare will keep us from being bored. The battle of our mind is what we need to battle. We sometimes think we are boring, because we are not aware of the fruit we have produced in other peoples lives, We see boredom as what other people think of us. Our heart for God is never gone.. His life in us is fragrant in our surrender through our situations. We don’t always see the potential of our service. Every individual born has a gifting of God to be released. Ask the Lord, Help me see the beauty of the ashes of our lives. Help me embrace what the Lord has for my life. God has a far greater purpose for our lives. It is miraculous to experience joy and hope now in this world. We get a tangible taste of that joy as our strength. We will accept to reality of God in every situation even before we receive it. We are not dependent on the manifestation, but dependent on our Lord.

God smiles and says ” I will walk hand and hand with you on your journey. The anointing will change you into my likeness. ”
