What bliss to shut the door and be at home with God.
Often life can become busy. We are pulled in every direction by many responsibilities. But there must be a point when we shut the door on it all. If we don’t, we won’t survive.
Even a Christian needs time to shut the door, be alone, and quieten the racing thoughts, allowing the soul to sink into Christ.
This week I’ve noticed several Christians who seem very near breaking point. Some are burnt out with family demands and difficulties, others with service to God. Have they lost their focus? When was the last time they shut the door and stopped doing things for God, themselves, or other people?
Just stop and be in His presence, kneel before Him and drink of Him.
“He gives power to the faint; and to those that have no might he increases strength.” Isaiah 40:29
The only way to survive is to shut your door, not on God, but on the demands made by life. Whether you have only ten minutes to give to Him or ten hours, He can give you the power and increase your strength. If we don’t, we shall be like the young men who faint and are weary and the children who stumble and fall. (Isaiah 40:30) We will make mistakes unless we take time to refocus on Christ and get our spiritual bearings.
It is the most important decision you can make - shut your door - there you shall find new strength.
