|No matter what is going on in your life right now, you have the most incredible, miraculous, and glorious destiny!
I’ve said many times:Christianity is not a religion, but a relationship with God.In Revelation 3:20, Jesus says, “I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him.” This speaks of the most amazing relationship in the universe—an intimate relationship with God! If you’re born-again, you’ve opened the door to the beautiful salvation that Jesus offers. Yet, He still stands at the door knocking—to be let into every area of your life; even the deepest places. But since Jesus is a gentleman; He will not kick down the door. He simply waits to be the closest friend you could possibly imagine.
In Matthew 4:21-22, Jesus saw James and John in the boat mending nets with their father, and He called to them, “Come follow Me.” They IMMEDIATELY left their boat and followed Him. There was no delay! Why? I imagine when they saw His face, they saw love for the first time. When they heard His voice, they heard the voice of love for the first time. Once you hear His accepting, inviting voice of love—you will not want to hold on to the life you’ve had. When He saw Jesus, John abandoned his former life and took on a new identity and a new destiny. Jesus’ purpose for John was far bigger than that fishing boat, and God’s destiny for you is far beyond your present circumstances. What is the secret to experiencing that destiny? Respond to that same voice of love, and you will abandon anyone or anything that is keeping you from moving forward with God.
Do you remember when you first met Jesus and received Him as your savior? Your eternal destiny was changed forever! If that first encounter changed eternity so dramatically, imagine what would happen if you let Him in like that every day! Wake up each morning and say, “God, I open my heart to you today. I’m going to open the Bible to hear what you’re saying to me. I invite you in to invade my life today, to transform me and to transform my destiny, just like you did for eternity."
If you’ll open the door of your heart to Jesus each day, I guarantee that your wildest dreams will come true. If you hunger for a deeper intimacy with God, I encourage you to get this great resource to help guide your journey.
