“Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart” Psalms 51:6, ESV.
There was a book I read many years ago that had the most profound effect on my life. It was, “My Heart, Christ’s Home” by Robert Boyd Munger. It was a small little pamphlet of a book that you’d ever see, but within it’s pages was profound truth. It talked about a man who let Jesus come inside the home of his heart, and while he tried to let Jesus only enter the “clean” areas, Jesus wanted to go into the closed off rooms that were locked.
In some believers, God is standing in the living room of their hearts, never being invited into those secret places. God didn’t come into our lives to have tea by the fire and give us occasional spiritual highs. He came to set the captives free. He came to heal every wound, deliver us from every fear, and make us whole and complete in Him. He takes one look at our hearts, and it’s like He’s saying, “Her heart is perfect for Me. My light will enter every room. My love will seep through every hardened place. I will tear down every stronghold and build someone that looks like Me on the inside and behaves like me on the outside. Yes, this heart is perfect for Me to work in and love.”
Let’s pray…Thank you Lord. Yes, I give you full access into every room in my heart. I know you love me. I know you only want to set me free. I surrender completely to you. Come into every room in my heart. Take my life and change it. Take my heart and free it. Take my mind and renew it until I look like you on the inside and behave like you on the outside. In Jesus’ name.
