Where do you live?

Reserved parking

As I was sitting outside of the Music Academy yesterday, waiting for my son’s piano lesson to end, my attention was drawn to the Reserved Parking sign above. I thought about a prophecy that the Father had given to my husband and me more than a few years ago. What God said that He would do in our lives took a lot of faith. I remember driving in our downtown area one day; and I said to God: How can I believe you for that, when I can’t even believe for a parking space? It was at that moment that I knew that that would be my starting point for building and exercising my faith in His abilities. I had started to believe God for close parking spaces wherever I went. I wasn’t being lazy. I just had a bunch of small kids; so closer was better in my line of thinking. Every where I would go, I began to get close parking spaces. It didn’t matter if the place was packed. There was nearly ALWAYS a close parking space for me. It happened so regularly that other moms who went to the same programs that I took my children to, expected me to always be parked close.

As I focused on this sign, I began to see that because I am a citizen (or tenant) of the Kingdom of Heaven, there is  ALWAYS a reserved parking space for me wherever I go. Earlier this week, I was thinking about how there have been a number of  powerful and ruling  kingdoms in the earth that have come and gone; but the Kingdom of Heaven, introduced to us by Yeshua, is the most powerful kingdom and it will forever stand (Daniel 2:44). Although our physical bodies live on the earth, our spirit man is seated in heavenly places with Yeshua Messiah (Ephesians 2:6). As people of God, it is of great benefit to live from and by our spirit; rather than by our physical senses. Remember that we are spirits with souls, that live in a body; which means we should be living from the inside out; and not the outside in.

    God truly is Our Provider! Your post reminds me of something the Holy Spirit spoke to me recently. He said wherever I go, He will prepare a place for me. I had been reflecting on His provision over the years and then He reminded me that He prepares the way for us. Thanks for sharing this!
