Today : Am Open Door
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.” Revelation 3:20 (KJV)
Who are we? Who are we that the God of the universe would be interested in a relationship with us? Yet, this is exactly what today’s passage implies. It is an open invitation to you and I to sit before God and pour out our heart. David wrote in the Psalms, “Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” David knew how prudent it is to let God search our most inner thoughts, emotions and imaginations. We can come to Him without reservation and trust that He cares; that He is interested; that He is able to show us any correction that we need. And the good news is that through this process of being transparent with God, He will lead us in the way we should go. Do you have that kind of relationship with God? If not, you can start today. He stands at the door of your heart and knocks. Open it, invite Him in and start to let God know who you are.
Dear Father, it is so hard to say, “Search my heart.” I don’t want to slow down. I don’t want to be vulnerable. But, if I cannot trust You with my heart, who can I trust? Forgive me for running from You. Help me be still. Help me trust You as I say, “Holy Spirit, I come now and open the door of my heart to You. Come in, search me, know my thoughts and lead me in the way You want me to go.” In Jesus’ name.
TODAY’S AFFIRMATION & MEDITATION
I give my heart to God
Quiet yourself in prayer. Come before God and sense His love and concern for you. Hear Him say, “I am knocking on the door of your heart – let me in.” Picture the door, open it and invite Christ in. Say, “Come Lord Jesus, search my heart, cleanse me, heal me.” See yourself at a table with the Lord and just be there, fellowship, see how happy Jesus is to be with you. Invite Him to stay, to be the ruler of your heart. Say, “I give my heart to You dear Jesus.”
