Living Heaven On This Earth Through Child Like Faith

child

You know coming into the fullness of my relationship with the Lord I have heard from those around me say I seem to be child like almost naïve. Which was slightly discouraging to say the least however, the Lord has given me revelation of what it means to enter into the kingdom with child like faith! Then I also had another person make a statement they heard a pastor preach stating that in the bible it states no man can see God face to face referencing Moses. So those who say they have seen Jesus or gone to heaven are lying because its not possible. Hearing that I was dumbfounded and couldn’t believe so many believe that reality. During contemplating those thoughts and how the Lord has manifested his presence in my life in such amazing ways. He gave me the revelation of the scripture  Matthew 18:3 And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven . This scripture is for our lives now, there are many believers who have intellectual knowledgeable minds not so much as a child and they will inter into the kingdom however, I believe the Lord means for those who are living on this earth we have the ability to experience heaven on earth now!. As the Lord prayer states in Matthew 6:10 your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

 In heaven we will see the Lord face to face, walking and talking with him experiencing his presence daily. Then I had another friend tell me she loves how I see God in everything and I told her yea he is here with me in everything. I soon realized he has given me the grace to have child like faith which he wants all his children to have. So many of us have made Jesus a religion, theology, a building, an image, or even just the bible to be honest. We believe for things so far away in our thought….oh only once when we get to heaven, or Jesus doesn’t do the things of the bible anymore. However, its time we empty ourselves of your ways and what we  have been taught and stop putting Jesus in a box with limitation. Thinking there is no way we can possible see Jesus face to face while living…does his word say “Matthew 5:8  Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God“….there is no possible way that Jesus literally talk to us, hearing his voice audible that is the old testament idea…didn’t he say John 10:27 “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me“…..there is no possible way to have supernatural heavenly experiences…… You see as Christians a lot of us lack that child like faith & imagination. Ask him to empty you of yourself, all your beliefs and limitations you put on him and even pride. Then Jesus, him for child like faith and imagination I guarantee it you will began to see how present he is with you everyday! Its the most amazing experience and walk you can have with the only Living true God, our Lord Jesus Christ. You will began to see him in his daily consolations to you, I tell my sisters that Jesus is the best imaginary friend I could’ve ever asked for LOL. Yea I said, Jesus is the image of the invisible God but he is ever so present and real even though at times you wont see him but, the longer you walk with him and acknowledge him believing in child like faith his presence because more real to you. Who knows by his mercy will open your spiritual eyes manifest his physical presence to you. He desires so desperately to be acknowledged in all we do and once you began to do that. He will go with you shopping, help you pick out outfits, bring people to you, sing love songs over you via the radio or walking into a store, or whether its in a form of a butterfly fluttering around you just to say, Hey I love you (one of the ways he shows me his presence),  or is hearing his voice audibly, or having him manifest in a dream and talk to you. He desires to be acknowledged daily and included in all that you do because he is there! When I began to see the Lord not only as my God and Father but as my friend who yearns to walk and talk with me daily. I began to treat him as such, talking to him in my car, shower, at the mall people watching haha, at the movies, cooking at the house.Just honestly including him in everything I do and he began to include me in the work of his kingdom as well revealing to me his heart in such amazing ways. So lets humble ourselves and enter into heavens kingdom now on this earth by trusting the Lord and coming to him like a child would to their father and including him in everything like you would a friend! God bless!

Come To Me My Child

I  made up my mind that I would get up every morning @ 5:00am before work to spend time with the Lord.  Now how long have I been consistent about that’s…..another story lol However, I had been  going through some tough resistance from the enemy manifesting in anxiety, worry, doubt, condemnation you could name it but woke up late. Darn it thanks for hitting the alarm Nana! lol  Jumping out of bed all discombobulated  and having only 45 minutes I knew that I needed to press in no matter this day. I came into  our secret place ( my closet) worship and my alone time with the Lord now feeling a little uneasy honestly with just a lot on my mind.  Lately it seem I had not been able to really connect deeply with him especially during worship. I sat there with my lips singing the songs but, with my mind thinking of how uncomfortable the way I was sitting, how he probably thinks my breath wasn’t so fresh because I had just got up out didn’t brush my teeth, that maybe I didn’t smell so great because I hadn’t taken a shower yet, then mad at myself because I wasn’t even focusing on him at all.  Which got me thinking maybe I should’ve taken a shower, read my bible then worshiped. Oooh or maybe I should’ve not worship and go right to prayer because I didn’t have enough time. Yes, All of these thoughts running through my mind as I am singing.  I felt like Pricilla Shirer in the movie ” War Room” .The scene where she is setting up her closet as a “War Room” trying to getting comfortable figuring out which way to sit, what chair, how to pray, what to read just getting all worked up for nothing as she was trying to get right in his presence . Lol

Then finally a break through I got the most beautiful impression in my heart, as I was worshipping I saw my little niece Naomi, who is cutest bow legged one year old walking towards me in a dirty diaper and bib. As she is taking her first few steps reaching out for me and I was reaching out my hands to grab her. Then the Lord shared with me, You see how your heart flutters in anticipation to grab her as she reaches out for even when she looks dirty. That’s how I see you, that’s how I see all my children. I long for you and love you right where you are just come to me. The more dirty and uncomfortable you feel that is even the more reason I want to hold you and clean you up with my Love. So come to me don’t let anything ever stop you from coming to me.  Then I saw myself as child with a beautiful white dress with ruffles with my arms around my heavenly father neck and my head resting on his shoulder. I burst into tears, with my heart completely melted and the heaviness completely lifted because of the consuming Love of our amazing father.

Romans 8:31-39 
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord

I began to think  to myself how so many others have come to feel they are not good enough to go before the presence of God. That they are not spiritual enough, they’ve been away from God too long so he has to be mad at them. They feel so dirty physically or spiritually because of where they are, what they have done and where they have been. As they carry condemnation and guilt where ever they go. Or, that there is a specific place and posture you have to get too to come into his presence and talk to him. Yet, God sees each and every single one of us as his beloved children. Dirty before him but when we set our gaze on him and began to take steps toward his direction. His heart explodes with Love and anticipation every time.  Like we cant even imagine, as he’s been patiently waiting so long for this moment for us to come back to him. So we can be refreshed, cleaned up, made whole and loved on in his presence. So come to him right where you are he longs to pick you up and hold you in his arms!
