Connections in Heaven

by Greg Laurie on Oct 9, 2019
The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him. And He will show them His covenant.
—Psalm 25:14

When my grandkids were small and we were going out to eat, I would say, “Now, we can go into this restaurant the regular way, or we can go the secret way. Who wants to go the secret way?”

All of them would raise their hand. “We want to go the secret way, Papa!”

So I took them in the side door. They thought it was really special, an adventure. That’s because we all love secrets.

The psalmist David wrote, “The secret of the LORD is with those who fear Him” (Psalm 25:14 NKJV).

Here’s something interesting that we ought to consider: a Christian has a better handle on what is happening in the world than some of the so-called experts. Why? Because we believe what the Bible says about the last days. We know what will happen.

Jesus said, “I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes” (Matthew 11:25 NKJV).

Are you facing trouble or difficulty right now? Here’s what you need to do: pray. When you don’t know what to do, when you don’t know the answer, you need to pray. When you’re having problems with your spouse, problems with your kids, or problems at work, you need to pray.

What did the early church do when James was arrested and executed, and then Peter was arrested too? We read in Acts 12 that the church offered constant prayer to God for him. And what happened? An angel rescued Peter from prison.

When Daniel faced what seemed like an impossible situation, he prayed. He was a man on earth who had connections in Heaven.

If you’re a follower of Christ, then you have the same.
