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 (NKJV)
Our lives are a house with a door. The power to allow in who or what drives our lives is the door. We have and hold that power. It’s called choice. It’s so powerful that even Almighty God in all his omnipotence won’t and can’t force his way into our lives. He stands outside and knocks waiting for us to allow him in. This God who is love, wisdom, life, strength, light, peace, liberty, rest, healing, provision is waiting for each and every one of us to let him in, into our lives, into our situations, into our challenges every day. When we permit him in, then life and its challenges turn out to be a wine and dine affair with him. That means we can relax, rest and be refreshed while going through the different and sometimes difficult moments and seasons of life because He is with us. Now we can confidently say “you prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies” Psalms 23:5.
The one who prepares the table is standing outside. He stands outside our minds, thinking, reasoning, arguments, questionings waiting for us to allow him in. We allow him in when we allow his Word into our minds, hearts, then consequently our actions and finally our lifestyle. Thinking and acting in line with God’s Word is how we allow him into the house of our life. When his word is influencing every aspect of our world then he’s dining with us and us with him.
Will you open the door of your Heart to God today?
