Aug. 08, 2014–A Son Lives Under an Open Heaven

And when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him; and behold, a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.”  (Matthew 3:16-17) 

Before Jesus did anything in public ministry, He received affirmation from His heavenly Father. Before He performed one miracle, healed one sick person, etc., the Father proudly declared His love and acceptance for His boy. The Bible says that the windows of heaven were actually torn open as the Father spoke His words of love and affirmation over His Son’s life.I have never read where the windows of heaven closed after the Father spoke His words of love and affirmation. If that is the case, then Jesus lived under an open heaven all the days of His life on earth.We do read where Jesus tells Nathanial that he will see angels ascending and descending on the Son of Man (John 1:51) so that tells me that the heavens were still open! If we are called to live the same life as Jesus lived because we are in Him, then we too should live a life, hearing the words of our heavenly Dad saying to us… “This is my beloved son, this is my beloved daughter…”Those of us who still struggle with orphan mindsets might not be convinced that this is true. My encouragement to you today is that IT IS TRUE! Jesus paid the price for each one of us to live our lives under the affirmation of a God and Father who has loved us from before the creation of the world.

My prayer today is that God would give us His Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation (Ephesians 1:17-18) so that we might really believe in our hearts that we can live under an open heaven just like Jesus did.
