Knock! Knock! Knock!
[ I am currently reading a book titled, “Giving God the Pen to Your Life”. So far, it has been phenomenal! It talks about us as Christians living a “typical” life yet not letting God have full control in our life. ]
This specific chapter, “Clank! Clank! Clank!”, talks about God knocking on the doors to our life such as relationships, pride, etc. When I read this chapter, I remember being so shocked at how true and relatable it really was.
“Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in.”
Whenever you get saved, you open your first door to God : your heart. You live out a Christian life by praying, going to church, youth group, etc. But, there are many other doors our Heavenly Father wants to open. He wants to be a part of every aspect of our life. Some you might not even think He cares about. Guess what? HE CARES ABOUT ALL OF YOU. He cares about what grade you made on that history exam, what you’re going to have for dinner, and what you secretly desire in the depth of your heart.
The key to living a radical life constantly going after the heart of the Father is to open up all your doors. He is standing there knocking. He wants to come in. He wants to be with you. He is passionately pursuing you.
This might not be easy. You might not be willing to give up your popularity or pride. But, He is FAR greater than anything this world could offer you. So, open up your doors. Talk with God. He is the closest friend you could ever imagine. He loves you with a reckless love. He wants you to be completely open with Him.
