11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.
Eternity: a vast concept to contemplate. But there is more, He put eternity into man’s heart. What does that mean, to have eternity in our hearts? How deep is that? How vast? How awesome?
It is mysterious–definitely! God, in putting His truth, His wisdom in us, blessed and anointed us.
None of us know the ways of God, but from this simple passage we understand that He pursues and puts in our hearts something of value to Him. “Eternity in our hearts” is the all-encompassing, vast plan of God. We are included. We are blessed because we are included. Relish that today.
3:11 The Message
True, God made everything beautiful in itself and in its time—but he’s left us in the dark, so we can never know what God is up to, whether he’s coming or going.
