There are dramatic shifts and changes occurring on earth, in our nation, and even in our own city and families. As Christians who love God, we are taught to be aware that all things work together for good if we are called according to His purpose. But all of this is just talk, unless it becomes a living reality in our lives. Your communication with the invisible realm literally is realized in the physical realm around you.
This brings me immediately to this Scripture from Matthew 25: “His lord said unto him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.’”
Every time I have an interaction with the spirit world, it seems to be insignificant in the physical realm, as if it’s almost not even there. It requires strong belief to make the substance of this interaction enough to even communicate. Every interaction with the heavenly realm that I perceive and meditate upon makes that world more important in my daily life, especially my prayer life. Let me share the reality of this in our actions through some examples.
In Romans, chapter 12, the Apostle Paul talks about a huge cloud of witnesses. In one of my experiences, I was praying alone in my car with all of the prayer warriors on Periscope. I saw a vision in the huge Nevada Valley before me. It appeared that I was driving across a huge stadium floor so large its seats went for miles into the sky.
In one part of the stadium I saw rows and rows of rulers of ancient Rome looking down from the seats along with rulers from other countries of ancient times. On the other side of the stadium I saw my family’s ancestors, 14 generations of Americans looking at the events that were occurring inside the stadium. Right in front of their section, on the floor of the stadium, were the leaders of our church in San Francisco fulfilling their purpose of waiting upon the Lord!
In the center of the stadium I saw the leaders of America. Then I saw the throne of the Father, and it consumed the stadium with His power. The Lord‘s face was covered in glory as He was watching the actions on the stadium floor. I realized that Heaven’s attention was upon us ~ every action, every deed, every day is very important to the cloud of witnesses:
“But ye are come unto Mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.”
This invisible witness of your earthly actions is ever more present as God begins to cause a mighty movement upon the earth. This reality greatly affects my daily prayer life. From the moment I wake (even before I open my eyes) I must take account of my mental actions and thoughts so I align them with the will of God for the day. I’ve realized in Heaven, many times our thoughts are louder than our words. God is increasing the weight of our daily reality.
This is important, because it’s a part of the invisible world becoming more of a part of your world.
Paul warned us in Hebrews, “Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, to day if ye will hear His voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness.” Jesus and Paul both emphasize the importance of “today”. Every day I stop and smell the scent in the air around me wherever I’m at. I see the textures, the feel, the people, and the environment around me as Heaven’s components for my “today.”
As I learn to interact with my environment of today through my five senses I’m more aware of the invisible world that is also interacting with my world. I can hear His quiet voice speaking directions to me. In whatever environment you find yourself in, whether high or low, prepare yourself for prayer. It is the interaction with the invisible world to which all things work together for your good!
