Did you know we are living in heavenly places right now? I’ve never thought deeply about this subject until lately.
My daily Bible reading this morning was the book of Ephesians. Paul mentions ‘heavenly places’ several times. It doesn’t seem like heaven here on earth with all the trials we are experiencing. But what I think it means is we are living in a spiritual world we cannot see most of the time.
I think God has revealed His angels to some people, and probably some people have seen demons as well perhaps unbeknownst to them.
I think about all those spirits about us. The angels of God fighting for us and protecting us. The Bible mentions in Jude that the archangel Michael was fighting the devil over the body of Moses. Jacob wrestled with God or a spirit in Genesis. There are many other references to angels as well.
While it is comforting to think about angels all around us, it is also a frightening thing to think of all the evil around us that we cannot see.
I am thankful to God that He has His angels fighting for us everyday. I am thankful we live heavenly places and that He is with us here. I am thankful for the hope we have in Jesus. Everything Comes Alive!
