Heaven

Too Fantastic for Words

Psalm 23:6a says, “and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”

What fabulous news! Praise God! We will live with Him forever!

Jesus assures us in John 14:2-3, “My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.”

Scripture teaches that these ‘many rooms’ are places Jesus prepares just for us. I am certain they are beautiful. I have often thought that mine has a rocking chair, and it is a beautiful shade of purple.

You see, I have three babies who went ahead of me, and I plan to rock them there. As you probably already guessed, purple is my favorite color. I bet its hue is fabulous in heaven.

What about you? What will your heavenly home look like? Imagine it as you go throughout your day.

All of us who are believers in Christ will be dwelling in our Father’s house in rooms too fantastic for words. Are you ready?

And there you go!

On Earth as it is in Heaven

Matthew 6:10b says, “…your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”

Wow! What if we prayed that phrase and really meant it the way Jesus did. God’s will being done on earth as it is in heaven.

In my mind - though I’m sure it’s far grander than I can imagine - here’s how heaven might be.

No pollution. No trash. Everything is perfect, complete with a magnificent landscape and water supply.

No money. Never having to worry or even think about bills, supplies, or expenses of any kind.

No sin. Oh, the glorious bliss of this! No unkind words. No tension of any kind. No killings. No selfishness. No crying. No death.

No darkness. Everything is bathed in light. For He is the Light. I will be fully known and understand Him fully as well. So, we’ll perfectly reflect His light.

On earth as it is in heaven. Even so, Lord Jesus, come.

And there you go.
