But you have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, Hebrews 12:22 NIV
The family drove down to the Lowveld to visit their friends. They followed a winding tarred road all afternoon through the hills and bushlands of Africa. At sunset, they were anxious to arrive at their friend´s ranch in a remote corner of the country. They past the last small town, and with it, they left the last civilization behind them. Soon they turned off on a dirt road. Their excitement grew as they thought of the beloved friends they were about to see. The children sat in the windows looking for game animals and taking in the beauty of the area. Spirits soared as they left the main dirt road and opened the gate. There were only 7 km left to reach their destination. By this point, they could hardly contain the anxious feelings for their joyful reunion. What is our faith coming to now?
Those who have chosen to lift God up and see Him as their dear Heavenly Father are growing anxious too! Their hearts yearn to be with Him! Every experience in life draws them closer in heart, soul, and Spirit. Each moment of every day we are thrilled to grow nearer and nearer to the King of Kings! If we listen carefully we can hear the songs of thousands and thousands of angels celebrating our coming! Our hearts can soar as we approach the One who loves us enough to save us? Could we start getting excited as we come more fully to the Lord and closer to His arms each day!
Overwhelm us with each discovery of Your love and grace. Let us grow anxious as we receive fuller revelations and thrill us to know that soon we will see Your face, we pray!
