25 His flesh shall be young like a child’s,
He shall return to the days of his youth.

26 He shall pray to God, and He will delight in him,
He shall see His face with joy,
For He restores to man His righteousness.

Job 33:25-26, NKJV



Spiritual Joy


True spiritual joy will come to all of God's children when they enter into His eternal kingdom.



There is not a lot that we know about Heaven; oftentimes we make speculations, but God has chosen not to reveal too much to us here on earth. I do love verse 25, especially now that I am older and can appreciate what it is really saying.



25 His flesh shall be young like a child’s,
He shall return to the days of his youth.



Have you ever wondered what our heavenly bodies will look like. Verse 25 tells us that our flesh will be young like a child's; we will return to the days of our youth. For some of us, that was quite a while ago! My favorite years were my 20's and 30's, when I had seemingly endless vigor. My teens would have been even better if I had my teenage body and the maturity of my 30's. In Heaven, we will have complete maturity as well as a body unmarked by sin. How amazing is that?



Notice in verse 26 the phrase, For He restores to man His righteousness.


What does this mean? none of us attained our own righteousness while in this life. How can He restore what we never possessed in the first place? Actually, we did! Adam and Eve were both created in complete righteousness, so that, through Adam, we were originally created in complete righteousness. Through Adam's sin, we all became sinners, and through Christ's righteousness His people were cloaked with righteousness again.



In Heaven, however, we will have our perfect, sinless, righteous bodies restored to us. We'll have no pain, no sickness, no injuries, no tiredness, no sadness, and the list goes on! We will pray to God and He will delight in us! We will see His face with joy! Only in our perfect bodies will we be able to actually look into the face of God.



It is good for us to ponder Heaven; we must always remember that this world is not our home! As a Christian, all of the troubles and sorrows we have in this life will completely pass away. Remember that as you go about your duties today, and don't forget to thank God for the bright future you have ahead of you as a child of God.
