Did you know that Jesus is always there, yet sometimes we fail to acknowledge His presence? He sees you and wants to talk with you (& He does!!), but if we’re not hearing His voice, maybe we need to allow space for Him to speak.
Imagine if you and your spouse (friend, loved one, boyfriend, etc.) went days without speaking. We would think something was wrong. We wouldn’t know how they were feeling or how they were doing! Or, imagine if your spouse talked to you nonstop and never let you speak (we all have had friendships like this; they usually don’t last). You would feel misunderstood, unheard, and most likely unloved.
Do you think Jesus ever feels like this with us?
Revelation 3:20 tells us that Jesus is at the door, but it’s on us to open the door and let Him in. He loves us so much that He’s not going to force Himself upon us. He wants a relationship, but if we can’t give Him the time, then that’s an us problem not a God problem.
We’re fooling ourselves if we think that we can just say we’re a Christian and attend church on Sundays, yet fail to talk or even think about God once during the week and think our relationship is in a good place.
If you want your children to grow up knowing Jesus and loving Him, then you better be showing them Jesus on a daily basis through how you speak to them, act around them, and by what you do (reading your Bible, praying).
Just like any other relationship, you need to spend time with them to draw closer and it’s no different with our Heavenly Father. The enemy is out to “steal, kill, and destroy,” (John 10:10), so you better be on guard and have your home ready for attack.
Remember, Jesus is there; let Him in.
