In reaching out to the Lord, we find we have to reach into our hearts and surrender all to Him. As we reach for His hand, He responds with love. He knows our whole being and leads us into the deeper places with Him. He helps us reach places we have closed off because of hurts and pains. When He takes us there, He heals us and fills us with His glory.
God honors our hunger. He gives grace to the humble. With a heart surrendered to Him, we are able to face every area where we need healing. Some of the things we go through lead us to this self-effacing place; face-to-face with our weaknesses where shame, guilt and condemnation may try to harass our souls. In that moment…we know God knows and we receive His forgiveness as a mighty wave of love and glory.
As we yield to the Holy Spirit, we are resisting the devil who has to flee from us. The closer we are to oneness with the Lord, the farther away we are from our enemy. The key is to remain submitted to God. We draw near to God. We take authority over our flesh, the devil and the world. We rejoice knowing He draws near to us, from glory to glory!
James 4:7-8 “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.”
