I had this word when I was praying some time ago and have shared it in our fellowship but feel that the Lord wants me to share it again now.
My dear children – you are all children in my sight, dear and beloved to me. How my heart aches for you. How my heart longs to take you in my arms and remove the burdens you are carrying. I am here – just waiting for you. Waiting to lift you up in my arms and carry you through the night. Do you hear me calling to you? Do you hear my still small voice crying out to you? Do not try and block out my voice. Do not fill your hearts and lives with worldly things which would stifle my still small voice. Make room in your hearts for me. Make room.
Some of you need to clean out the house (our hearts) – to make room so that I can come in and sup with you and talk to you and make you mine.
Some of you have squeezed me into the smallest room of your heart and tried to close the door and keep me in that small space and will not allow me to have access to the parts which I need to access – the parts which need healing, cleansing and release.
Some of you have opened up a parlour, the best room, where I am invited to sit. Where everything to outward appearances is swept clean and tidy – all rubbish hidden out of view – a room where a fire burns and which seems welcoming and inviting and where everything appears to be alright – but you are not comfortable with me. You are not comfortable in my presence and you do not know how to be comfortable with me. You are not really comfortable with my presence there because you are fearful that I will want to go into the other rooms and all the other rooms are barred to me. You are ashamed of them. You feel that they are not good enough for me. You feel that I would not want to really see inside those rooms – rooms which are dirty, unclean, cluttered, and full of things which you are ashamed of – those are the very rooms I need to go into with you and help you clean. Help you bring warmth and light into those rooms. Those areas of your life which you are ashamed of – those areas of your life which you try and keep me out of and pretend do not exist. I am not fooled. I want to come into all areas. I want to be able to access all areas of your life and your hearts.
Do not be afraid my children. Do not be afraid. If you will open the door then I will come in and we will eat together. We will talk together, we will commune together. I made you, created you, I know you better than you know yourselves. I will not be shocked or outraged by anything in your life or in your heart. If you are willing to submit to me completely then I will come in and do a work in you. I will restore you and refresh you.
Some of you ran well once. Who interrupted your race? Who hardened your heart against me? Who deafened your ears and muffled my voice? Who stole away your desire to be with me and the intimacy that we once enjoyed? Who stole your first love?
I am the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. I sit at the right hand of my father in heaven. I am not a thief or a trespasser. I do not enter in where I am not invited.
Do not keep me out of my rightful place in your heart and in your life. I want to take up my rightful place in your heart and in your life. Let me take up my rightful place. Come to me and submit yourself to me. Open the door and let me into my rightful place. Open the door and let me into the closed places. I am King and Lord of all and there is no other but me. Let me come in. Do not leave it any longer. The time has come to let me be King and Lord in my rightful place. For the time will come when I will no longer be stood here knocking. Let me in to that locked and darkened room in your heart so that I may bring my light and my healing touch.
