The Hebrew picture for Daleth is that of an open door when looked at from up above. It is indicative of decisions made from a higher perspective
….Our feelings and our emotions are determined by whether or not our hearts are willing to take the path of the Cross.
Our first decision is determined by our willingness to die, denying self and acknowledging the rightful longing of God to reign in our lives in every area. It is in places we have never been – places we don’t know exist, places we don’t want to go to, places that are dark and lonely – that God longs to flood His light.
…The tactics of the enemy are subtle and sly and we can easily find ourselves at an altar of idolatry. Somewhere a thought expressed itself that would have been better to cast down and brought into captivity and replaced with a thought reflective of the Word of God.
Somewhere indecision lay rampant. Somewhere a door was left open; somewhere a heart cries for what is pure and true and right.
Here stands Jesus with sword in hand; here stands Jesus at the door of each of our hearts.
He is whispering. Can you hear His words of love and kindness, His words reminding us of His strength and His honor? His whispered words of intimacy are meant for our ears alone and not for a stranger to overhear.
As I entered through the door of your heart when first we met, so I stand at the door and knock, hoping for deeper access into your heart. The door is but a place of welcome.
…Yes! the door of your heart is where your greatest decisions are made. The attitude of your heart will greatly influence what choice you decide upon. If your heart is open, it is like a shoe in the door; there I can whisper to you words of comfort and encouragement that will guide you into making decisions that are right.
When your mind and emotions are reeling with worldly heaviness, I will be the Lifter of your head. I shall cradle your head within my arms and with great tenderness look into your eyes – they are the windows of your soul and reveal much. I shall speak Light into the darkness there and revive you with My Word…..
…Repentance leads you into the way of truth and light where I am able to reveal things to you that I would like to remove….
