"After this I looked, and there in heaven a door stood open! And the first voice, which I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet, said, 'Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.' At once, I was in the Spirit, and there in heaven was a throne, with One seated on the throne!" (Revelation 4:1-2)
We've "come up here" to Alaska for two weeks of ministry and adventure near the top of the world. I've never been this far north before. And I've also never seen such heavenly beauty on earth before. Snow-covered peaks, stretching high above the clouds and overlooking the rugged beauty of lush green trees and deep blue waters, leave us breathless at the majesty and grandeur of Your creation.
Lord, open our eyes to see Your beauty in the nature of the land and in the nature of Your people here in this high place on the earth. Like John, let us hear Your voice and see with Your eyes what You are doing. Give us Your words of encouragement and comfort to come alongside the Body and Bride of Christ in this region of the world.
Give us great expectant faith to see You healing the broken, freeing the captives, and preparing the way of the Lord in the hearts of Your people. Let us see the beauty of Your holiness, as You minister Your freedom and healing from the inside out in the hearts of Your children. Let us "come up here" to encounter Your Presence and experience Your power through the healing love of God in this high and heavenly place. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
