Heaven help us

Re: Verse reading–John 14:1-14 (day seven)
“Do not let your hearts be troubled.  Believe in God, believe also in me”–v 1.  Truth is practical.  Knowing it, holding it in your mind has a positive, powerful effect.  In the midst of a crisis, Jesus is encouraging his disciples.  His approach is to move their minds from anxiety to certainty.  He asks them to think about Heaven, to count on it, to depend on His power to bring it about.  What happens when we do what the Lord was asking them?  Courage comes!  Stress subsides!  Fear flees!  Are you willing to take instruction from the greatest leader that the world has ever known?  Think Heaven!  Say to yourself, “This world is not my home.  Heaven is.”  Remind yourself to not be disappointed when this world does not reward or recognize faith.  Your reward will come later.  Those who “think heaven” find that it has a powerful and positive effect on their lives now.
