discover His presence
Open up, open up, open up your hearts! What if Rev 3:20 is really written to us, a media driven church who has trouble hearing and seeing because we are so focused on the stuff on the tv, internet, and social media and we cannot hear the Savior at the door of our hearts crying out?
Like the woman in Song of Solomon, we are asleep, our mind is dreaming, and we do not hear, rise to the knock on the door, when we are beckoned to come into intimacy… so instead we run out into the streets searching and are ravaged by the religious “watchmen” who are misusing their post.
Oh that our hearts would turn, awake and alert, to the smallest call of intimacy... Oh that we would be ready and cry out Lord .. open my mind so that I can understand scriptures like you did for the men on the road to Emmaus. Luke 24:13-34 that our hearts would burn within us. That our understanding would be opened Lord for you have the key to open all these things Is. 22:22…to stir us up to burn again… Lord You said to knock and the door would be opened... Matt 7:7 so we ask humbly that in this season you would open up the places inside of us to burn again with passion…that you would come in to the door of our hearts and share a meal with us.. We are hungry for your company and long to eat and drink all that you have prepared for this season and to put before You our best so that You also will enjoy our fellowship.
Like the blind men we cry out have mercy on us Lord, that our eyes may be opened.. Matt 20:29-34
Lord open our eyes... to see all the things of the Spirit you want us to see. We know there is so much more, but we are blind apart from Your revelation and Your presence…. We need to come humbly, and ask, and You begin to take off the religious scales from our eyes like You did for Saul.Acts 9:18. That our eyes would open, and the religious scales would fall from our eyes and we would be filled with the Holy Spirit... Not just a taste of the Holy Spirit but filled… to the top of our capacity… And while we are asking, God we ask You would expand our capacity to carry Your Presence. We ask you would expand our thirst and our hunger and our capacity to be filled up with all that You are… Filled for Your purposes…. Filled with Your measure….
God also would You forgive us, for where we have feasted at the table of other Gods like yoga, and like the adulterous woman have wiped our mouths and said “we have done no wrong” Prov. 30:20, when really we have partnered with Jezebel and taught your people to eat food sacrificed to idols Rev 2:20 and not repented of our vile immorality all the while allowing her to prophesy.. God forgive us …
 Theses scales remind me of the scales of leviathan that protect him.. If we partner with spiritual pride we can’t see and we become blind to the realm of the Holy Spirt even while being religiously devout. Job 41:15 Forgive us for our blindness. You call us to purchase eye salve so we can truly see. Rev 3:18 Because all those you love You You unmask and train.. BEHOLD.. You ARE standing at the door knocking.. Won't You please come in and feast.. We invite You in...
