Today Reminder - 03 September 2012 (Doors)

My prayer for you for today is that you will hear the voice of the Lord and open the door of your heart, in Jesus name.

Revelation 3:20
"Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.”

Doors - Look! I stand at the door and knock. Have you ever been to door and no one answers – frustrating! I believe that every day creates new doors in our lives and each door is either a new opportunity or something that we keep behind a closed door. We too can be seen as a door, our doors either open to Jesus or we keep them closed.

As each day starts, Jesus comes to knock on your door. When you start your day with Him and allow Him in and share with Him, you day is bound to be successful. Jesus says when you hear my voice and open the door, in this He refers to an old parable – the sheep that recognises the voice of the shepherd and follows Him. We hear His voice and we react to a familiar voice. 

Sharing a meal together as friends is also such a powerful statement. When you eat with your friends it is in an environment where you are comfortable and relaxed. You share the good and the bad times and talking with friends opens the opportunity to lighten the load and regain new focus and objectives. When Jesus enters through your door, He doesn’t only want to be with you, but He also wants to help you with you problems and carry the burdens that you drag behind you.

When you open the door and allow Jesus into your life, His presence will make you stronger and more focussed. His voice will be clearer and letting Him walk with you will ultimately build a better relationship with Him.

My dear friend, open the door and let your day start with Jesus. Let Him enter into your life and let Him share in your good and bad. Hear His voice and follow His Word as you seek His presence every day. Be patient and allow Him to work in His time by fully trusting Him in every success and every obstacle and giving Him the glory for all that you are.

Have an awesome day, dear friend of Jesus
