Daily Devotions: by Christina Farris
Godís angels the minister of the church/people, from the beginning of creation. The point is Godís angels, people that follow God from the beginning of creation. The people already belonging to God by choice. These people become rich and self sufficient to the point that they no longer needed God. The people no longer needed God provision in a since, yet the world was created by God and God has the ability to tear apart and put back together anything He wants and anything He needs too. In other words God allows man to have wealth and means to support himself and also brings him down and lifts him up. He takes the poor and leads them by springs of water and enables them to soar. He sits with the old and down trodden in their misery of not being able to do those things they once did, or would like to do.
Jesus stands at the door and knocks anyone that hears Godís voice he will come in and sup with him. He will dine in their hearts, as we dine on his word. He comes to commune with us and to enable us to be all we can be for His glory and honor. He comes to dine to save our soul, He comes to dine to feed us in our lonely hours of emptiness. He feeds us hope of his word. He ministers to our hearts when the pressure of this world comes crashing in. He ministers to our hearts through the joy of new life, and new hope. He satisfies the soul and reminds us of the things to be thankful for. He also corrects our hearts so we become more like him. His correction is for our benefit.
To have a God so loving and compassionate to be willing to come and live in our hearts to be our enabler, our comforter, and our hope for eternity is a blessing. How does God come to live in our hearts, not by force, but by us opening our hearts to him, as creator and Lord of our life. He not only Lord but He is friend, and closer then brother or sister. He knows our needs and wants to the poin the entwines them to satisfy our souls. How can one be satisfied in the storms of life, knowing the hope of tomorrow or time to come that very hour.
When Jesus knocks at your heart will you allow Him. All one has to do is repent and open the door to Him. He will teach you all you need to know. Invite him today, invite him in to stay. Invite him to lead you through the valleys of the shadow of death, over the plains and mountains of life. Ask Him in today, because he paid the price on the cross for yours and my sin.
Dear Heavenly Father forgive me of all my sins and come into my heart Lord Jesus. Come in and change me for your glory and honor and be my Lord today. In Jesus precious name, Amen.
