342 Ammunition for the Battle

 

I’ve been thinking about the present situation of those who have died in You, dear Lord. I know that once we step out of time there is no past or future, all is present with You. But when I remember something about my parents and thankfulness rises up in my heart, I want them to know that. When I read or sing something that raises my spirit to You, sometimes written half a millennium ago or even more, I want that person to know how their life has blessed me.

Of course, You are the source of all such goodness, and it is really You I should thank, and I do. But we seem to have community built into us and want to interact person to person.

I can’t think of anything in Your Word that clarifies this. I have, at times, asked You to pass on my message. But if there is no difference in the time that I think of them and the “time” that I will be with them personally, that won’t work, will it? I’ve just been picturing something like a chest that we each receive when we arrive in our heavenly home, and we can all open it at the same time and discover how our lives have blessed others, or perhaps we will just know. I know You wouldn’t put the bad thoughts in there!

All you need to know now is that any thought, prayer, response of goodness from your heart is ammunition in the battle to bring in My kingdom. It is never wasted, it doesn’t just disappear into the air. It accomplishes something in My purposes and brings My visible victory over evil nearer. All goodness does originate from My Spirit and it brings Me joy that I can freely use your heart in this way.
