The words "heaven" or "heavenly" are often associated with feelings of pleasure. Sayings like "I'm in seventh heaven" and "It's so heavenly" describe experiences that bring joy. For many believers though, heavenly things seem rare. So they spend their lives looking forward to heaven, when this earthly life is over. But the joy of heaven is supposed to be on earth. We are to live a heavenly life now. How can we know heaven here in this life? The secret, the key is this: Messiah says "Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven." How does heaven come on earth? The answer is in His will. It becomes on earth as it is in heaven in His will. The joy of heaven comes to earth in His will. If you want His joy, and the heavenly life, then follow His will. Get your life inside of His will. Get your heart inside of His will. Delight yourself in the will of God. Then the life you live will be heavenly, because His will shall be done in your life on earth as it is in heaven.
From Message #666 - The Joy Of The Shamash
The joy of our Lord is our strength. Dwell in His holy presence, center yourself in His will. His blessings will flow. Serve Him with a joyful heart and again; rejoice.
