In Heaven

Mt. 6:9  in heaven.

“In heaven” is a place.  There has been a lot of debate over the existence of heaven.  This is proof enough.  Jesus said God the Father is in heaven.  At the same time, even though heaven is a place, we have a direct line of communication with the Father in heaven.  In a way it is like the Internet.  I have readers from China, India and other places in the world.  They are very real places.  Yet, through the Internet, I can communicate with them.  Prayer is our Internet communication with God the Father.  Through prayer we can communicate with Him.  Just as on the Internet, I must wait for a reply, in prayer we must wait for God to reply to us.  How many of us miss hearing God because we say our prayers and rush on to business rather than taking time to be quiet and listen to God’s response.  Practice the art of listening.  I find it most helpful to write what comes into my mind after a time of prayer.  It always surprises me what I write.  Take time to listen today.
