I’ve got GOOD NEWS for you today.
Jesus is knocking! He is inviting Himself into your life.
How do I know? Because He said so.
“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.”
Recently, I’ve been meditating on this verse for my prayer times. There is a picture that helps me imagine Jesus knocking on the door. I want you to stare at it for a moment. The handle is only on one side of the door: your side.
I want you to imagine Him knocking, and you deciding to let Him in. That simple act of opening the door of your heart to Him is huge.
Intercession flows out of friendship. How can you know how to pray for what God wants if you don’t know Him?
As you pray today, I’d like to ask you to pray that He would help you get to know Him.
Pray that He would break your heart for the things that break His heart.
Pray that He would help you take seriously the things He takes seriously.
You can pray something like this:
Now, today as you go about your day, try to notice and take these moments of prayer into the rest of your day.
I love you my friend! Praying for God’s blessing on your life today.

always staying in prayer and keep my focus Jesus ! Also to surrender my heart and burdens to him. Prayer that during and after this season of crisis that Jesus continue to use me and show me how to provide comfort, love & compassion to others. Thank you Pastor for this daily devotionals I am so blessed that I am able to take part in this.
Thankful for this reminder to seek God’s perspective and not our own. It’s so easy to get tunnel vision when we only focus on our own lives, whereas God is the author of a much bigger story. Praying that God helps me zoom out and trust that the twists and turns of my own journey are all a part of his perfect, sovereign plans for the world, and to help me focus on the greatest commandment: loving him and others.
Jesus please open my heart to learn your loving ways and to teach me how to be the best version of the caring person I know I can be only with your help.
I try every morning to start my day talking to him. it could be on a walk or cleaning house. First i like to thank him for everything I have. Then I ask for forgiveness . Then I pray for his guidance throughout the day. Everyday he has a different plan for me. Now I just need to listen!
