When Does Heaven Begin? 022115

In Psalm 23:6, David says, “‘I will live in the house of the Lord forever.”  I may be crazy, but I think David understood that he would continue to experience God’s Presence and love and grace, even after he died.  I actually believe that David knew what few of us figure out while we’re still alive, that heaven begins right here on earth, when we surrender our whole selves to God through Jesus, and really begin to trust Him.   When we trust God, He sends His own Personal Spirit to live in our hearts, and we begin to experience Heaven.  (Small at first, fits and starts, but the more we trust, the more we realize heaven.)

Like Jesus said, “The kingdom of heaven is at hand.”  And “Seek first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all this [stuff] shall be added unto you.” (Matt 6:33)  When you really decide to trust God, and quit worrying about trying to take care of yourself, you actually begin to feel what it’s like to experience heaven.  Get ready.
