Lift up your heads : Part one

Psalm 24:7”Lift up your heads, O gates, And be lifted up, O ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in!”

On a day when I just felt ‘hopeless and down’, the Lord spoke to me from the above scripture in a very profound way, I hope you receive the same healing that I received from God. May His Hands comfort you!

Due to continuous prolonged delay over a particular prayer request, I got unsettled a bit and was visibly very upset; however, God met me in a mighty way.  While people around me expected me to be ‘steady and proper’ all the time, the day when I was ‘unsteady, wobbly and confused’, God reached out without condemning, mocking or rebuking me for my anxiety and doubts.  That’s the difference between our Heavenly Father and the world!  Anybody listening to me?  What can Bala speak to us from the above verse anyway, you may ask?  Loads and loads, wait and see…..

In the above verse; the doors and gates are to be thrown open, thrown wide open, to give admission for the King of kings,  for behold he stands at the door and knocks, ready to come in!  Are you listening? There’s a kind of urgency in the demand….yeah, He demands the gates to be opened, not for His own needs to be met but for our sake, are you there?  The next verse also talks about who is the One who stands at the door: It is the Lord, strong and mighty, the Lord, mighty in battle, the Lord of hosts.  Wow!  Just imagine, how your life would be when the Lord mighty in battle occupies your heart! Enough of keeping your heart half open for the Lord, give Him complete occupation - Monday through Sunday.  He is the rightful owner!  Don’t be rebellious to deny entry for the Lord and thereby forfeit blessings, because He is the One who is able to lift your head. Stop leapfrogging and jumping from one place to another for your answers and confusion, settle at the Feet of the Lord Jesus! I would request you to circulate this devotion far and wide; I am not through, I have more to share which I will do tomorrow – the second part!

Repair those creaky doors and open it for God!
