Open your heart, dear Friend, open your heart. There is a God in heaven and He is waiting for the doors to swing wide open that He may gain access. “And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13).
He is a gentleman. He will not force Himself upon you. But with love, He beckons you to let Him in. “The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee” (Jeremiah 31:3).
Draw near, dear Friend, draw near. Do not let this moment pass you by. He’s waiting on you, but as with any opportunity, the days are fleeting and time continues to move ahead. “So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom” (Psalm 90:12).
Will you welcome Him, dear Friend, will you welcome Him. “Behold, I stand at the door,” He says, “and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me” (Revelation 3:20).
The Bible says that restoration is waiting for those who are truly repentant. “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool” (Isaiah 1:18). “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord” (Acts 3:19).
Open your heart to God and let Him rain on you. He will cause you to grow with new life. “I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon” (Hosea 14:5). “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17). “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead” (1 Peter 1:3).
The precious gift awaits. Open your heart, and receive Him for yourself. “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23).
