How ornate is the door of your heart? How inviting is it to God’s Holy Spirit? When we say, “Come into my heart – the door is open wide…” What does that door look like? Is it a beautiful door with lead glass or is it more of a solid core door that never lets the light in?
We are so blessed because before Christ ascended into heaven, He graciously left us His Holy Spirit to help us – guide us – with wisdom and mercy and love beyond understanding. Through God’s Holy Word, the Bible, prayer, and guidance by God’s Holy Spirit – the comforter, the light in our heart – every Christian can navigate this life the way God wants them to. I’m praising God for His protection over my life today, aren’t you? He means everything to me!
Thank You for leaving Your Holy Spirit to comfort and guide our footsteps. You did not leave us alone and for that we are grateful. May the door of my heart be one that lets the light of Your love shine through. May Your love shine through me to others. Help me to show the fruits of Your Holy Spirit… love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness. Give me Your perfect love and the wisdom to navigate this life as only You can. I love You and lean on Your counsel every day, Lord. Please take my hand and walk through this life with me. I can do nothing without You. Please shine in my heart and help me to shine out to others.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Christianity is about shining and iron-sharpening. It’s about encouraging each other in the LORD… there is so much division and hate in the world around us, but that is not God’s way! We are called to be “apart” from the world – we are in the world, but not of the world. Through God’s Holy Spirit we can be like Christ. Read God’s Word, pray and watch God work in your life. 🙂
