Heaven on Earth?

Jesus said to them, “When you pray, say:

Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
on earth as it is in heaven. Luke 11:2

 

Jesus wanted us to pray that His will would be accomplished on earth just as it is in heaven. My first thought is, He wouldn’t ask us to pray that prayer if it wasn’t possible. I don’t know about you, but when I imagine what heaven is like, it does not look like what I am experiencing here on earth. That challenges me to start asking some hard questions. Like, “Why Not?” and, “How can I make that happen?”

 

I think, first of all, we have to believe that it’s God’s will for us to experience heaven on earth.

 

Secondly, we have to loose ourselves in Him, recognizing that every true pleasure can only be found in our heavenly Father.

It was only when Adam and Eve looked for pleasures outside of what God offered them, that they lost their heaven on earth.

 

So, let’s turn our full attention to the things of God and get His plan to bring heaven to earth so that we can truly experience the joy, peace, freedom, wholeness that He designed each one of us to live and walk in.

When we are full of the light of Jesus, we will dispel the darkness in the world around us bringing about true reformation.

Let us take hold of the light of heaven and bring it into our world by letting the light of God invade every part of our being.

God’s love for us is so rich, so deep, and so powerful.

Lord help us to take hold of a love that transcends our human understanding so that through Your love we can fully grasp Your intent for our lives.
