The Kingdom of God – we get a glimpse of it with our finite eyes. It glows in the pupils of our earthly wonder and amazement. However, we miss the grandeur of this holy place if we fail to look through heaven’s eyes.
Our Maker has handed his children the keys to such a hallowed ground. This should make our bodies shake with delight. Nothing can compare to the riches housed beyond the gate of this beautiful kingdom.
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. – Matthew 16: 19
Can you wait for the day that we can call the Kingdom of God home? Pulses racing and heart pounding, we will walk up to the entrance enthralled at the beauty that surrounds us. The beauty that is unmatched – because Christ’s throne is stationed in this heavenly abode.
However, it is important to remember – Jesus’ kingdom is not just planted in the watercolor sky. His kingdom is alive inside each and every believer. He lives in you – and that key is imprinted on your pumping heart.
For the Kingdom of God is already among you. – Luke 17:21
If you are a believer, Jesus lives in you. And, you house the Holy Spirit. Though you are not in a physical kingdom (that day is coming!). The King lives in your spirit. He moves in your midst. What a wonderful realization!
Like an invisible shield, our LORD is there to protect, defend and offer so much love to your weary heart. Trust, look up to heaven and cling on to your key that offers life.
May we truly digest that the Savior of our Souls breathes deeply throughout the chambers of our hearts. May we feel his love and earnest affection today and always!
Say aloud today – his kingdom is alive in my heart, and he has handed me the keys to unlock wonders beyond compare. With every beat of my heart, let me acknowledge his kingdom and radiate his supreme light.
