Heaven is here

What is Jesus saying personally to me today – heaven is here

So with you when you see these things happening: know that the kingdom of God is near.
When I read and reflect on these words it appears to me that when Jesus talks about heaven being here, close or at hand, He is referring to how we are being in complete union with Him. Signs like flowers blooming, trees bearing fruit or the signs of spring in the air illustrate how nature is in perfect union with God, perhaps we as humans can use this as encouragement for ourselves. How we see the world, how we are in the presence of Jesus determines just how much of Heaven being here right now.

Thank you for speaking to me Jesus

How do I respond to what Jesus is saying personally to me today?

What I see and where my attention goes determines what I experience. So in effect I am in control of how much heaven I can be in. Today is such a great opportunity for me to see the beauty of God’s creation in everything and everyone. Keep an out for it, for all of what God has beautifully crafted in people and nature is my goal today. I will be a Kingdom of God practitioner.

Prayer:

Lord,
open my eyes so that I can see and be in this heaven on earth.
Amen

Luke 21:29-33

Jesus told his disciples a parable: ‘Think of the fig tree and indeed every tree. As soon as you see them bud, you know that summer is now near. So with you when you see these things happening: know that the kingdom of God is near. I tell you solemnly, before this generation has passed away all will have taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.’
