There are different types of doors in the world that are made from all kinds of materials. There are doors that are made of wood, aluminum, steel, and others. Yet the toughest door on the planet is the door of our heart. Unless we open the door of our hearts, nothing and no one can enter into it. A door stands between what’s on the outside and what’s inside. Jesus stands on the outside of our hearts, and it’s not His character to simply bust down the door. He will never force Himself in our lives. He simply stands at the door of our heart and knocks, waiting to be let in. Once we open ourselves to Him, He comes in like an amazing flood, and from that moment forward, our lives are never the same. He shows us a love we’ve never known, turns on the light in our dark lives, forgives us, and washes away all our sin and shame. The door of our heart stands between a bright future in God and our present condition. In the day that you hear His voice, don’t harden your heart. Don’t refuse and reject His love. Open the door of your heart to Him and keep it open. If you don’t open the door to Him, you have opened the door to someone else. Someone will rule your life and if it’s not God–it’s the enemy. The devil only means you harm and a life that will end in destruction. God only wants to love you and show you just how real He is.
“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” (Revelation 3:20 KJV)
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I open the door of my heart to Your Son Jesus. I let Him in right now. Forgive me of all my sins and shame, and wash me clean. Turn on the light in my life and help me see Who You truly are. Change me from the inside out and show me Your purpose for my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
