|It's for You and He's Not Leaving Until You Answer The Door....|
The house is quiet... All I hear is the ticking of the clock on the living room wall. Seconds are going by that will never come back. Seconds that turn into minutes, that turns into hours, that turns into days, that turns into weeks, that turns into years... How quickly time goes by.
I wonder how small we look to God? Did you ever wonder that? Do we look to Him the way an ant hill looks to us? It must seem so big to those ants at their viewpoint. Do you wonder how God sees you amongst all the human beings there are in the earth? Is it like one of those movies we see, where they show the earth from a distance, making it look like a turning globe. Do you feel like you are reaching out your arms to God, jumping, yelling, stomping - wondering if He even hears you? Maybe there is a voice in your head saying, "Aw come on - why would He listen to you? He's got His plate full with prayer requests and peoples problems. What makes you think you are special? That He has time to hear your little itty bitty non-important concern?"
Don't listen to that voice. It is the voice of the liar. He wants you to think that you don't matter, that your feelings don't count, that your life doesn't count that you are nothing more than a little ant standing on that ant hill. The Bible tells us that "He knows EVERY hair on your head." (Luke 12:7) You matter. Your thoughts, your life, YOU - you matter to Him. In fact, you not only matter, He wants you to talk to Him. He wants you to share your thoughts, your worries, your concerns - your life with Him. He wants to be a part of your life. He wants you to know that its "not about" joining a certain denomination or church (although it is good to be part of a place where you will spiritually grow and get fed). It is about having a "personal" relationship with Him. He's waiting to hear about your day. Like a best friend waiting for the phone to ring, eager to pick it up and hear all about YOU.
He tells us "Look at the birds of the air, they do not sow, or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable then they?" (Matthew 6:26)
He stands at the door knocking. (The door of your life). And here is the beauty of His love - He will stand there knocking and knocking and knocking - not giving up, even while you are going through the course of your life, shutting out that knocking sound... Covering it up with daily activities, ignoring it. But deep inside your heart, you hear it. What will it take for Him to make you lift your head and acknowledge His presence? Let Him show you that you are not a little ant. Or maybe even better than that - that those little ants He created serve a purpose. Even those tiny little ants matter to Him - and He sees them hard at work on that anthill. How much more so does He see YOU? Open the door and let Him in. You'll be so glad you did! "Behold I stand at the door and knock if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with Him and Him with me." (Revelations 3:20) Isn't it time you made a date with your Heavenly Father? Imagine going out to eat with someone who already knows ALL about you - but wants you to tell them anways? Someone who is sitting forward in their seat hanging on to your every word. Looking at you with pride and love and adoration simply because you let them in? Someone who is TRULY interested in everything you are thinking and have to say. Someone who wants to truly share with you. See you succeed, bless you abundantly. And all you have to do is open the door and let Him in. It will be the best door you ever opened in your whole life.
