Heart Door

“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me.”  Revelation 3:20

The Lord is knocking on the “heart door” of those who are actively desiring to better know Him – those who love His presence and are seeking to commune with Him on a higher level of relationship.

If these qualities are to attract the attention of the Lord so He will begin to knock upon your “heart door,” you must first spend quality time with Him by “waiting upon the Lord” in anticipation of His “knocking” upon the door of your spirit.

There are two steps in this process of “waiting upon the Lord.

“Blessed is the man that hears Me, watching daily at My gates, waiting at the posts of My doors.  For whoso finds Me finds life, and shall obtain favor of the Lord.”  Proverbs 8:34-35

In the first step, we look toward the gate (door) in worshipful anticipation, waiting for His presence to be manifested to us.  When the Lord responds, we can begin to “wait upon Him,” acknowledging His presence as being with us, and then actively “cooperate” with Him in whatever way He may lead or direct.

If there was ever a time when we need to be led by the Holy Spirit - our being in the right place, at the right time, with the right word, it is today.  We are to be good stewards of this “calling” by keeping ourselves available so we can hear and become a vessel through whom the Lord can speak.
