Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7).
Having peace that surpasses ALL things, seems as if it’s beyond our grasp doesn’t y’all? We allow so much worry and “Life” take that peace in our minds and hearts away. But it will NOT be that way Forever friends. Heaven is waiting for those, who are born again followers of Jesus Christ. Heaven is very real, and I can’t fathom the kind of peace, God’s word says it will be, in my human mind. In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety. (Psalm 4:8).
Recently during my Lifegroup meeting, the question was asked, when you are meditating about God, what do you see, hear, and feel? Y’all, I must say one of the things for me, would have to be envisioning Jesus, welcoming me at Heaven’s gate, wrapping his arms around me saying,” Well done my good and faithful servant!” Can you see and feel it to? You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You. (Isaiah 26:3).
I can feel even now such a sweet Peace about it! I can NOT describe the feeling I have, and do it justice. This morning as I was getting ready for work, a song came on my Spotify, that I haven’t heard before. I started swaying back and forth, in a dance with my Savior, and My Goodness beloved, I started envisioning that, and I felt the Holy Spirit’s presence so strong within me, and I long for that day to be a reality.
Another mentioned while praying to God, it’s as if he’s sheltering them from ALL sides. God is whispering comforting words in their ears. Friends, God, in every sense of the word is our Daddy, our Heavenly Father, and we our his children. He is protecting, sheltering, kind, leading, comforting….The list can go on and on. Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27).
I know some reading this will think and say, my earthly father has NOT been there for me, so why would God be any different? Trust Me Friends, if you don’t have a relationship with your biological daddy, your spiritual daddy will NEVER leave or forsake you EVER! Everyone at one time or another will eventually let you down, God will NOT. Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way. The Lord be with you all. (2 Thessalonians 3:16).
Another mentioned when we finally see Jesus face to face, they envision seeing, a brightness brighter than the sun. ALL of our cares, worries, doubts, and questions of “why did you allow me to carry this burden” and countless other questions, will NOT matter anymore. We will be in Heaven! I have heard ALL my life, about the streets of pure gold, pearly gates, walls of jasper…etc. It’s NOT that I don’t look forward to seeing those things also, but to come face to face with Jesus! WOW!!! Nothing else will compare or matter.
Read Revelation Chapters 21 and 22 as referenced above
Another mentioned being reunited, with all of our loved ones, who have gone on to Heaven before us. I have many family members that I can NOT wait to see again. I have to be one hundred percent honest though, seeing my first grandchild Tyler, that was taken way too soon again….PRICELESS! I can just see him waiting for me, and wrapping his arms around me, as the tears stream down my face. I can hear him telling me, “Mamaw, Why did you blame God for taking me for so long?” “Why did you grieve for me so much?” I’ve been here waiting for you! I’ve been in a better place!
Can you envision seeing God, the GREAT I AM? Not ONE being will be able to stand, before the almighty God! ALL will bow face down to the ground, in reverence of his Power. For some that day will be dark, because they have denied God as their personal Savior, and will be doomed to Hell. Do NOT let that be you beloved. Have your heart and soul ready to meet God. Don’t let there be ANY doubts whatsoever, where you will be spending your eternity!
Don’t take “Angie’s” word for it. God’s word says ALL will bow and confess, regardless of whether you believe he exists or not! YOU WILL BOW! Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:9-12).
I would love to hear from you and your thoughts, of what you envision when meditating on God in Prayer.
I mentioned in the beginning of this post, a song I heard while getting ready for work. I have it for you below. Find a quiet place, just you and God. Close your eyes while listening to this. Envision your savior standing before you! What do you feel? What do you see? Do you feel the same Peace I do?
