How does knowing that heaven is coming, bring us peace?
Fear of the unknown and the dangers that lurk, are the source of our panic. We live in the fear that the past will repeat itself, or the future will be worse. We’re drowning in the dialogues of “what if…” and “but it happened before…”.
When we know Jesus, and have a relationship with Him, we know that we’re safe.
Regardless of what happens to us in this life, He has us and our best interest in mind. Yes, there will be pain and suffering. Yes it will be hard. But sister, heaven is still coming.
When our brains understand this truth, they can rest. Even if the pain comes, it will pass. God will lead us closer to Him. God will bring us to heaven in the end. We can get through it.
That knowledge gives our brains the reassurance they need to not panic.
With Jesus, we know it ends well. He has overcome the devil and all the pain and suffering of this world. Once it’s over, we’re home free.
This puts our minds at rest, which puts our nervous systems at rest, which puts our bodies at rest. The physiological state of Rest and Digest.
On this side of heaven.
All from knowing that Jesus has overcome the world, and that we will be in heaven soon.
He wasn’t joking when He said we could find peace just knowing Him.
I’m praying for you ♥
