Revelations 3: 20  Behold, I stand at the door and knock.  He who hears my voice and opens the door, I will come to him and dine with him and he with me.

The Lord does not pressure us to meet with Him:  he gives us a choice…no stress.  He merely extends His hand…and waits for our answer.

This is what the Bible refers to as ‘the mystery’, that God loved us while we were yet, sinners.

Colassians 1: 26, 27  The mystery that has been hidden from ages and from generations but now has been revealed to His saints.  To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles:  which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

Colassians 3: 16  Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

Ephesians 2: 8  For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves:  It is the gift of God.

Ephesians: 13  But now in Christ Jesus you who were far away have been brought near by the blood of Jesus.

1st Peter 2: 9  Declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light.


There is a song, WE ARE SO BLESSED; the lyrics are as follows:


When we’re empty
You fill us ’til we overflow
When we’re hungry
You feed us and cause us to know
We are so blessed
Take what we have to bring
Take it all ev’rything
Lord we love You so much
Verse 1
We are so blessed
By the gifts from Your hand
I just can’t understand
Why You’ve loved us so much
We are so blessed
We just can’t find a way
Or the words that can say
Thank You Lord for Your touch
Verse 2
We are so blessed
By the things You have done
The vict’ries we’ve won
And what You’ve brought us through
We are so blessed
Take what we have to bring
Take it all ev’rything
Lord we bring it to You

I asked, He answered

I sought, I found

I knocked and the door

Opened wide for me

I asked, He answered

I sought, I found

His mercy is limitless

His faithfulness ever abounds

Lamentations 31:3

…great is thy faithfulness


When I was a child of 5 years, I learned a song, ‘One Door and Only One’ – Author unknown


‘One door and only one

And yet it’s sides are two

I’m on the inside

On which side are you?’


Such a simple,  message ~ such profound implications!


The Lord desires to bless you.  He cannot bless if the door to your heart remains locked.

Only you can unlock the door and welcome Him in.  He’s waits at the door of your heart.
