Your heart is perfect for Him.

January 2, 2016

“Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart” Psalms 51:6, ESV.
There was a book I read many years ago that had the most profound effect on my life. It was, “My Heart, Christ’s Home” by Robert Boyd Munger. It was a small little pamphlet of a book that you’d ever see, but within it’s pages was profound truth. It talked about a man who let Jesus come inside the home of his heart, and while he tried to let Jesus only enter the “clean” areas, Jesus wanted to go into the closed off rooms that were locked.
In some believers, God is standing in the living room of their hearts, never being invited into those secret places. God didn’t come into our lives to have tea by the fire and give us occasional spiritual highs. He came to set the captives free. He came to heal every wound, deliver us from every fear, and make us whole and complete in Him. He takes one look at our hearts, and it’s like He’s saying, “Her heart is perfect for Me. My light will enter every room. My love will seep through every hardened place. I will tear down every stronghold and build someone that looks like Me on the inside and behaves like me on the outside. Yes, this heart is perfect for Me to work in and love.”
Let’s pray…Thank you Lord. Yes, I give you full access into every room in my heart. I know you love me. I know you only want to set me free. I surrender completely to you. Come into every room in my heart. Take my life and change it. Take my heart and free it. Take my mind and renew it until I look like you on the inside and behave like you on the outside. In Jesus’ name.

    Jesus, You hold the key to my heart, Lord. Okay, here, take these secret keys and go where You must. I trust You to see me through this process. I can’t count how many keys I have here on this key chain made by the enemy. Here, just take it from me. I don’t want it anymore!! Go open those doors. Go ahead. I am asking You to. Holy Spirit, comfort me!! Hold me through this! There are a lot of locked doors. I know I did not come this far to say, “I won’t let You in there!” I don’t dare, Jehovah Shalom! Take me home!! I am held there im heavenly places! Lift up the tear- stained faces!! Give us peace, Lord! Give us more! We want more! The darkness lives there in those locked rooms. I keep them closed so I don’t have to face what I locked away there! There is great sorrow and remorse there, regret and unforgiveness, anger and condemnation stare back at me when I peek in there! So I locked those doors tight! I covered them with the night. But, I know Your light is bigger than the darkness there. Go and I will follow. Hold my hand tight, Lord. I am still afraid of the cold, dark lonely night! Help me fight to get up from here and stop hiding under the covers. I shall discover what lies underneath the rubble there in those rooms. But Lord, the basement, it stinks and reeks of death and disease! The putrid smell tainted my soul until You came in. Go on and do what You must. I trust You. Take them all. All of the keys, the chain that holds them, and the secret code to the basement below. You do it Your way, Lord. Do as You will with my heart and life. It is Yours. I don’t want any more keys of my own. I will pick them up from You every morn to open up the door of my heart to You and You alone. Then I will leave them with You! There is no one else I want moving about in my heart! So take all the keys to my heart, take me apart, and burn down the rooms that have no purpose here and clear all the rubble and trash out of the other rooms, Lord. Go on and be my Holy Housekeeper!! Help me, when You open those doors. Hold me close and tight. Defeat the darkness and coldness and death that lies there! Do this for me, Jesus! My life is Yours! My heart belongs to You! You are seated on the throne of my heart. So, go on and make this palace ALL Yours!! I am not afraid!! I fear not, for I know You walk with me through every valley! Oh, sweet victory is Yours! You shall conquer and claim ALL of my territories for You and Your glory, Lord. Hallelujah!! I receive it!! Yes! Lord! Clean house!!! In Jesus’ Name, I pray for and receive all that You have for me. Long live King Jesus!! He shall reign on the throne of my heart forevermore! Jesus, make a way! I know You will always stay with me. I receive the power and grace to face what’s behind those doors. I am free of guilt and shame! I am known by my true name!! As the song by Bethel music sings unto my ear, I sing to You from my heart! You will be praised! Your praise will ever be on my lips!! And on these fingertips!! Hallelujah!! Thank You, Jesus! We won’t be stopped, You and me, You in me, and me abiding in You!! We are a team, You and me! You are the best friend to me! I couldn’t ask for anything more! You are always, always, always more! How can You keep being more? It baffles me, but I am so happy to be here with You! There is no one else for me! No one else who can complete me and love me, as You do!! Oh, how I love You so much. You bring tears to my eyes, overflowing, and sobs that engulf my voice! But it’s love I feel! And it’s so real!! I love You so much, Lord! I adore You so much! I love You more today, Lord! You make my blessed yesterdays less than before, BECAUSE YOU ALWAYS GIVE ME MORE!!! GO AHEAD, JESUS, UNLOCK AND OPEN EVERY DOOR! CLEAN UP THIS TEMPLE, SO THAT I MAY RECEIVE COMPLETE HEALING, RESTORATION, AND EMPOWERMENT! IN YOUR MIGHTY NAME, JESUS, I PRAY THIS! I RECEIVE IT! MY HEART IS YOUR HOME, SO MAKE IT YOUR VERY OWN! AMEN.

    Okay, Lord. We went through that door, and that hurt a lot. My heart is heavy. I trust You to carry me. I release my tears unto You. I am held in the arms of my Heavenly Father. Please hold me tighter, Lord. This hurts so much. I receive Your loving hug. Help me. Take away the hurt. I feel sick with grief. Take it from me. I don’t want this no more! Quick Jesus, shut the door. I don’t think I can see anymore right now. Why do I want to tell You I am sorry? I didn’t do anything wrong, did I? Why do I hate to cry? Because of so many tears shed alone? Hold me. I knew this wouldn’t be easy! But You’ve got me, don’t You Jesus? Of course You do! I believe it! You won’t fail me! I know You won’t. In Your faithful Name I pray, amen.

    I thank You, Lord, that You are with me in the dark. I thank You, Lord, that You are with me and hold me close when I am afraid. I thank You for being right by my side, as I walk down this long, dark corridor of heavily guarded, sinisterly locked doors of my heart. I trust You, as You hold my hand and we enter these rooms, Lord. You set the pace. I am caught up in Your grace. Dispel the shame and disgrace in this place! I shall see the corridors of my heart filled with Light and You and I shall walk and talk here and I shall enter all the rooms without fear. Never again will I need keys to enter the rooms that have been locked away in the darkness here in my heart. I know, Jesus. You are about to start a revolution in my soul! Oh, dear Jesus, help me let go! Oh, my soul, let go and let God! I am safe here in His arms! Nothing can harm me here! I have absolutely nothing to fear! Oh, my soul, give up the fight! The night is about to become Light! Yes! The Light shall walk through the corridors of my heart and dispel darkness forevermore! Let’s go, Jesus, let’s go further down this corridor! Every door is Yours to open in Your timing! I shall keep rhyming my way to Your heart! And I know Jesus, You are setting me apart! You are preparing me for more!! I don’t want to settle for less! Nonsense!! I am meant for the best!! Because I am a daughter of the King!!! And You, King Jesus, are my everything! Long live, King Jesus! He shall reign on my heart forevermore! Yes! Yes! Yes! I am preparing to receive His best for me!! Sweet victory is coming! We shall keep on running, Jesus! You and me! Set the pace and I shall endure the race and we shall celebrate at the finish line! I love You, Lord. I am putting on my armor now! All that stuff we just dug up, I lay it down! Take it from me quickly! I shall not receive it again! Throw it all in the sea of forgetfulness! There goes a little of the darkness, Lord! Yes! Yes! You are the Best!! Oh, You give my soul rest! You are better than all the rest!! I put Your love to the test and You wow me! Oh, You are so sweet to me! I shall never leave Your side again! For You are more than a best friend! You are a brother who sticks closer than a friend! Oh, how many different ways to love the Savior of the world!! So many, many ways, my Lord! I shall savor these moments, as You clean up my heart and soul! For I know that You do this ALL for me. Not for my purpose or for my destiny! But because You love me and You want to set me free! I shall be free indeed, Jesus! My sweet Jesus! I shall love You forevermore! You are more!!! In Your Glorious Name I pray. King Jesus, You reign! Amen.
