Wednesday 23rd September
Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.
The Lord Jesus is preparing your place in heaven!
What a fantastic confidence we have as believers in Jesus Christ. We have the expectation that after death is a fantastic way of life with God in heaven. If you have put your faith in Jesus as the Son of God, then have faith in His promise.
You have a place in God's house in heaven. How awesome it will be to be a part of the household of God, to have Him nearby at all times, to live in intimate fellowship with Him!
Think of those times when God has met you in a prayer time in an amazing way and you were overwhelmed with His presence and love for you. You felt His glory all around you. In heaven, what you felt for a moment in prayer on earth will be your ongoing, natural experience. You will delight in God's presence forever.
If you have a loved one who is already in heaven, God wants you to realise today that they are already overflowing with the best time in their lives. They are walking with God and more `at home' than they've ever been.
