Connection:

“Behold I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me” (Revelation 3:20).

In the busyness of our lives, we often forget the gentle knocking of God at the door of our hearts. He longs to connect with us, to share in a relationship that’s deeply rooted in His love. This verse from Revelation reminds us that God continually seeks entry into our lives, desiring a profound connection.

 

Reflection:

 Before a relationship can truly flourish, it needs a solid connection. Imagine a friendship where conversations are shallow and distant, or a spiritual journey where God feels far away. Connection is the key to deepening these bonds, bringing us closer to God’s intended design for our lives. As the Bible portrays, the act of dining together signifies a covenant – a sacred bond. It’s a beautiful illustration of the depth of connection God desires with each one of us.

Now, consider this: Is your relationship with God a healthy one? Are you simply going through the motions, or have you genuinely opened the door to Him, allowing Him to connect with your heart and soul?

 

Challenge:

 Is your relationship with God living in the fullness of His design, or is there room for deeper connection? 

 

Prayer:

Dear Heavenly Father, we thank you for the beautiful promise of connection and relationship that you offer us. You stand at the door of our hearts, patiently knocking, eager to share our lives and dine with us. Lord, help us to recognize the areas of our lives where we’ve kept you at a distance. Give us the courage to open the door wide and invite you in, so we may experience a deeper connection with you. We acknowledge that a healthy relationship requires a strong connection, and we long for the fullness of your design in our lives. In your loving name, we pray. Amen.
