Day Thirty-Four

 

God’s Perfect Cloud-Drive

 

“… and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places…”

Eph 1:19-20

 

         

          I am toying with new technology that is stretching me.  My recent acquisition of a Blackberry Playbook (32GB) has me now learning about cloud storage, cloud readers, cloud security etc.  However what is most fascinating is how the Lord provokes a realization within me … He has the very first and best Cloud-Drive!

          Think of this – in Exodus when Moses was called to build the Tabernacle, he was allowed to see the heavenly tabernacle (the pattern), and instructed to build it all according to the pattern which he saw.  What Moses constructed here on earth was simply a type and shadow of that heavenly reality.  The heavenly tabernacle was the real model. (Heb 8:5) 

          So now let us begin to consider our natural cloud-drives as simply prototypes or copies of the heavenly one.  Here are some things to think about.  We place our files, songs, pictures, etc. in our natural cloud-drive for ease of access, protection, and so our devices aren’t clogged with the clutter.  Our valuables have become our media that we want with us everywhere.  But where are we storing our true treasures?  Matthew 6-19-20 warns us against storing our treasure here on earth where it is vulnerable to destructive forces.  We are told instead to store treasures in heaven “where neither moth nor rust nor worm consume and destroy, and where thieves do not break through and steal.”

          We may think of our media “stuff” as treasure, but what about our very lives?  Where have we made provision for those to be secured?  We jokingly agree “you can’t take it with you!”  But have you made a choice about your destination? Failing to choose is in fact a choice.

          In Luke 23:46 we hear the God of the universe make an astounding statement.  God the Son (Who knows everything, has all wisdom and all power) says: “Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit!”  He placed His eternal spirit into the Father’s hands – into eternal security and eternal communion back again with the Father!  This is the resident location of God the Father’s cloud-drive (if I can speak so colloquially.)  It is in the Father’s hands.  Everything committed into them becomes His – and remains safe.

          May I suggest you take a look at His long-term storage plans?  You won’t find a better deal, a more secure location, or more space – this side of heaven.  The Father’s Cloud-Drive – you’ll have access to everything!

          Be blessed!  Be-loved –eternally in His presence.
