Jesus is so close to you. He’s dying for an intimate relationship with you. He’s dying for you to run into His arms when everything in your life seems to be too much. He DID die for this! He’s knocking but you haven’t opened the door yet. In Revelation 3:20, Jesus is telling us,
Listen! I am standing at the door, knocking; if you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to you and eat with you, and you with me.
Have you ever seen images of this verse? Google “Jesus knocking on door” and you’ll see some of the images of Jesus knocking on a door, but if you look closely enough, you will notice there is no doorknob on the outside, only the inside. Jesus cannot force Himself on you, He wants you to open the door for yourself. But if you do, you life will never be the same. If you allow Jesus into your home and your heart, you will have the One person who’s lived through your sufferings but who can also CONQUER those sufferings! He wants you to surrender to Him, to allow yourself to collapse in His arms when it seems too much.
