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. — Revelation 3:14
Do you feel like your life is being lived in fast-forward or that your spiritual food taste like bad fast food when you're craving a good meal? It may be that we are starving our soul and feeding our spirit artificial faith! I can remember many years of committing to anything and everything that was asked of me—and on top of that list of commitments was my own personal unrealistic list. Being still was never on my list. I was raised with a father who was a mover and motivator. Being still was looked at as lazy in my driven Jewish family. Because I did not know how to be still, I lived every day overstressed and overcommitted. Being still is not something many of us have mastered. We feel like we have too much to do to stop and spend time with God. Even those of us in ministry can become so focused on what we want to conquer for God, we forget to go to God and get refreshed. We underestimate the power of being still in His presence and dining with our Savior.
God's Letter to You
I believe if The Lord was going to write you a personal letter about battles this life brings it may read like this....
I am knocking at the door of your heart and hoping you will dine with me. If you will open the door I will come in. I prepared a feast for you my beloved. Will you accept my invitation? I long to feed your hungry soul until you are completely satisfied. Let your prince come in and nourish your spirit, your mind and your body. I am the only one who truly can.
Your Prince & Saviour
