"Behold I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice, and opens the door I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me."
Our Father does not desire a shallow, superficial, relationship with His children anymore than we do with our own children. He is constantly pursuing us. He isn’t just knocking at the door of our hearts, but He is speaking to us. He who hears His voice and opens the door of their spirit, He will come inside of him. This is a very intimate act resulting in intimate communion. As we read the messages to the churches in Revelation, we see each message ending with, "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches."
We must ask ourselves do we have an ear to hear the voice of God? We cannot be intimate with someone we aren’t willing to listen to. We must open our hearts completely for Him to take up residence through the Holy Spirit.
John 4:10 says, "In this is love, not that we love God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the covering for our sins." How can we refuse His unrelenting, undeserved love for us? Why do we seek from other people or things what only can come from Him? Let us give Him our undivided attention and listen to His heart this morning. May we swing open the door of our hearts, and allow Him to love us as only He can. It is His greatest desire!
In His love.
This is one of my yearly nesting guest who seems to enjoy watching me as much as I do her. I have been delighted this spring by her unusual lack of fear.
