Matthew 3: 16: And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: 17: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
At times a relationship with Jesus can get a little mystical. Doves, spirits, voices from heaven, and the heavens being opened all make for a mystical moment. Jesus transcends what we see on a daily basis. He operates in heaven and earth simultaneously. That may throw our normal pattern, but be thankful that He is access to the Father in heaven and the Holy Spirit on earth at once to affect our lives.
Listening to the message of the moment from the pulpit, my life seemed to be the content. The preaching pierced pointedly and profoundly into the core of that night’s dilemma. All day, I had lived the problem being answered. It was exhilarating. God’s timing in bringing my pastor to the present point of my life is amazing. There are too many times to tell of when this has happened. The scriptures come alive with fire and stir me up to new levels of faith. How could God care so much to make the message match my messes? What an amazing God!
ACT! Need anything from heaven? Some things we need don’t exist right now on earth. Jesus is access to heaven. Ask the Father for the impossible in Jesus. Go ahead and plan the rest of the day as if you had it.
PRAY! Our Father, who is in heaven, Holy is Your name. Cause the heavens to open for me in my life. Cause Your Holy Spirit to brood over my life and cause chaos to come to order. Release all You are in heaven and earth in me that Your will would be done here even as it is there.
