This week during mid-week service I encountered person after person who was exhausted from their busy workweek, family responsibilities, and depleted of physical energy. Weariness showed on a people’s faces, even when they tried to hide their exhaustion behind a smile. However, when we started to sing, Your Presence is Heaven to Me, God’s supernatural strength began to give the weakened heart and spirit power to not only endure, but to thrive. We entered from an earthly place of physical limitations, to heavenly places, where nothing is impossible.

Who is like You Lord in all the earth?
Matchless love and beauty, endless worth
Nothing in this world can satisfy
‘Cause Jesus You’re the cup that won’t run dry

Your presence is heaven to me (x4)

Written by: Israel Houghton, Micah Massey

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. Revelation 21:4

In heaven there will be no tears, no sickness, no sorrow, pain, or death.

Your Kingdom Come

Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Matthew 6:10.

You do not have to wait until we get to heaven to receive strength, comfort, healing, and deliverance. You can experience all of those things here on earth.

My prayer is, “Lord, let your kingdom come, on earth as it is in heaven. Lord bring healing on earth as it is in heaven. I pray that you will bring comfort and wipe away our tears, as you will in heaven. Your word declares that You are our healer, I pray that You would heal us completely of every physical, emotional, and spiritual ailments. Let Your will be done in earth as it is in heaven.”

Yes, heaven will be amazing—it is beyond our understanding. But, we have an opportunity to experience heaven on earth today.

Jesus gives and open invitation in Matthew 11:28, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” You can find rest in His presence today and When you enter into God’s presence, you can enter into heavenly places (Eph. 2:6–8).
