The Heavens Above Us

The heavens above us were opened once and for all when Jesus rose from the dead. Because of His resurrection, each believer now lives under an open heaven. The heavens do not open or close based on our disobedience. Heaven is not in submission to human disobedience. What some describe as a closed heaven is simply a closed heart that came as the result of an unresolved experience of personal wounding or a disappointment in life.

The beginning of personal freedom is coming to the realization that there is never a moment when the heavens above your life are not open.  You carry an open heaven into painful divorce proceedings.  You carry an open heaven down a dark alley in the middle of the night.  You carry an open heaven into church meetings where those present deny the reality of the Spirit’s power and presence.  You carry an open heaven with you no matter where your life takes you.  The possibility of a supernatural solution always hovers above your life in an open heaven waiting to be released by your faith.
