Revelation 3:20 behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come into him and dine with him, and he with me. Yesterday I had a disagreement with some friends of mine about how to go about helping someone mentally Disturbed. Even though what I had to say was something that God would want me to say it came out sarcastic and belittling to my friends. I was speaking out of frustration and confusion because they couldn’t see my point of view. I spent the majority of the day pouting and bitter at the unresolved situation. I called a couple of friends to talk it over but it was the last person that helped. He said that the work God had myself and my study partner doing was a Godsend and he didn’t want the group to dissolve. Most over he didn’t believe that God would want me to stop sharing His good news. Had I opened the door to my heart, the Holy Spirit would have come in and shown me how what to say. My friends wouldn’t be upset with me and understood what God wanted me to say. Remember to start your day with an open heart to Jesus. Remember also to listen to Him when it’s time to speak and time to listen. Dear heavenly Father, please forgive me for any of my sins and trespasses. I open my heart’s door to you this morning for you to come in and use me as your vessel. Have me say what you want me to say, see what you want me to see, and hear what you want me to hear. This way I can be a better disciple for you in all areas of my life, in Jesus’ precious name amen.
