I Hear You, Lord

“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.

Revelation 3:20 NLT

Some great insight on Revelation 3:20  by Pierre Du Plessis – The Father’s House:

A great worship song that we can soak into while contemplating and lifting our prayer:

I want Jesus to be my first love. I have played Gomer far too many times in my walk and have been distracted far too many times by my own complacency and life’s circumstances. My grief has overtaken me at times and so has my doubt. Other times it has simply been my lack of love for those He loves. I have walked through too many of my days awake yet asleep, treating time as if each breath wasn’t precious but could be wasted or overlooked — letting the oil in my lamp go too long without fresh oil being poured.

Lord, help me — your wandering Lamb who can’t even walk without holding your hand. I have not been a great warrior in every battle. I have not done great wonders in your name with each opportunity before me. I have not been a great, shining example of your love and a hope to all those in need around me.

Yet, I have seen you work even through someone like me, and I know You can do it again, and that You will finish the work that You have started. I do not need men to remember me or my name. But if even through my weaknesses and my many failures they might see that your flame burns bright within this house — they will know Your mercy and Your grace, and see Your glory, and long to know You. Amen.
