The Knock on the Door

02/27/2015

Last night while I was sleeping, I heard a knock on our bedroom door. I sat up and saw my husband was still asleep. I thought maybe it was our son, who has been staying at our house on and off over the last few weeks. He was currently not staying at our home, but I thought maybe something had happened.

So, I got up and went to the door and opened it. He was not there. No one was there. I had clearly heard the knock, four knocks on the door. It was 10:36 PM, and now I could not sleep. As I pondered this strange event, trying to relax so I could sleep, I started to pray. It was not long before I laid back down and drifted off to sleep.

In the morning I jumped up and went to the front window to see if our son had come home after all, and had just knocked and then gone up to his room. But, no, his car was not in the driveway. There was no message on our phones.

I got my tea, sat down for my morning God time, and forgot all about the incident, until later when I was driving to work. You’ll understand why as I explain my time with God.

I was praying about the direction God is leading one of my Bible study groups, called Life Renewal Ministries. At this point we are all allowing God to fill our minds with ideas, a brainstorming with God in prayer. We will collect these ideas and being to pray over them until we have our answer.

As I was praying, I thought about the statement Jesus made twice to the effect of “I never knew you.”

Matthew 7:21-23 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’”

Matthew 25:11-12 “Later the others also came. ‘Sir! Sir! they said. ‘Open the door for us!’ But he replied, ‘I tell you the truth, I don’t know you.’”

In study of the Bible we come to realize that God has been calling us into a relationship with Him from the beginning of time. We are His and He is our God. He wants us to know Him, to love Him, and to worship Him.

Throughout the Bible are hundreds of scripture passages where God says, “draw near to me and I will draw near to you,” “seek me and you will find me.”

Relationships are two-way streets. God is calling. Do you answer?   God is knocking on your door. Have you opened it?

Revelation 3:20 “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.”

It is my prayer that God will allow me to reach many for Him. That through my willingness He can use me to point the way to Him. I do not want any to leave this life only to hear Jesus say, “I never knew you,” and close the door.

Answer His knock today, now. Get to know our Lord and his deep love for you.

Blessings,

M.
