Jesus, the Way Maker!

It’s time to come out of hiding. There is more freedom to be had. More glory to experience. Many more levels of revelation. Greater and more profound encounters awaiting you. All it takes is the complete opening of your heart. The uncompromising vulnerability to invite him into every part of your being. 

Every dry, stained, and neglected area of your soul must be opened to him. Don’t camouflage anything or sweep it under the rug. Invite him into the ugliest, messiest areas of your life. He already sees what you don’t want to face yourself. Those embarrassing thoughts, feelings of anger, inconsistent beliefs, or dark temptations you’ve tried to ignore haven’t been missed by him. He’s extending the invitation to clean them up with you. It’s time for beauty to blossom from the places the enemy mistakenly thought would take you out. 

Holy Spirit, search me. I prostrate myself before you and open myself completely. As the impurities rise to the surface, I won’t try to hide them. Wash me clean. Set me free from even the most seemingly insignificant impurities. I want to be as close to you as I possibly can with no barriers between us.
