Nothing will ever be perfect for us here on earth because we are not home yet.
Don’t pray for a financial breakthrough when you have not received a spiritual breakthrough yet.
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.” (Matthew 6:19 )
“But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. (Matthew 6:20 )
“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Matthew 6:21 )
The rewards of the two worlds (heaven and earth) are mutually exclusive. The fact that you received a financial breakthrough, received a miracle, got healed from a disease or got a reward on earth does not mean your name is in the book of life.
The principle or laws controlling earth are different from that controlling heaven.
Therefore let us make sure that we are not spending all our time only asking God to do something for us here on earth rather than seeking ways to make sure we make it into His kingdom and that we get assigned one of those mansions Jesus told us about. Our heavenly mansion needs to be built up and decorated.
In the meantime, God promised to give us our “daily” bread so let’s believe Him for that as we set our minds on things above.
Determined to make it to heaven…..
