“Whoever believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.” — John 7:38
The Upstairs Came Down, by Gini Kittle

A little girl was describing her first ride on an elevator. She said, “This is what happened. I got in this little room and the upstairs came down.”

Stop and think about that in regards to this verse: “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ” (Ephesians 1:3). Because of Jesus’ great and finished work on the Cross, heaven is now filled with everything we could need … far more than we can imagine. It is as though God looked around at every way He could possibly bless a human being in a spiritual sense and it is there … waiting for us! This marvelous supply has been prepared for us not according to our need or our worthiness but “…according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).

When you and I get into the “little closet of pray” and ask the Lord to bless us, we will, like this little girl, see the upstairs blessings of heaven come down to earth! After all, our heavenly Father longs to answer the prayer of His Son,
“Our Father in heaven … Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven” (Luke 11:2).
