“The Kingdom of Heaven is perfect, with no sadness, no sin, no illness . . . a perfect Kingdom is overwhelming to grasp through our minds because the world we reside in is filled with so much brokenness, heartache, and pain. Because of Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection, we have been given the ministry of the Kingdom of Heaven through the Holy Spirit. The same Spirit that brought Heaven to earth through Jesus is available to each of us, and it’s for today.
Today we get to experience glimpses of what Heaven is like when we invite Jesus into our life circumstances, emotions, situations, and even the places we go; we can claim the ground we walk by inviting Heaven to reign. The Holy Spirit has to unlock this concept for us, igniting faith, allowing Him to take us deeper into what God has empowered us to accomplish. When we begin to understand what we have access to, we will become so rooted in confident trust, we will truly have nothing to fear.
‘I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.’ — Luke 24:49 (NIV)
This ministry could not start without the power and the presence of the Holy Spirit infilling the disciples, which is why Jesus told them to wait until He came. We have access to that same Spirit, releasing the Kingdom of Heaven everywhere we go. The flame that started through the Holy Spirit when Jesus went away to be with the Father was meant to be ongoing—we are clothed with power!
Wow . . . can you even comprehend this invitation as we make Jesus Lord of our lives?!
Releasing the Kingdom of Heaven is the ultimate ripple effect of our Heavenly Father’s heart. This is the assignment He has given to each of us who call upon His Holy Name. We have been invited into a lifestyle of bringing Heaven here on earth in the most natural yet supernatural way, and the work that He has been doing in us is meant to be a testimony of God’s overwhelming love and power through us.
We are conduits of God’s life-changing love and power.” —Ripple Effect
Holy Spirit, we invite you to move in us and through us in life-changing ways, creating a powerful ripple effect of your Kingdom here on earth.
Your will be done-
On earth as it is in Heaven. Amen.
