Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if anyone hears my voice and opens the door to me, I will enter his house and dine with him, and he with me. Revelation 3:20
It is difficult at times to make out His voice outside the door, as He stands there knocking. There are the voices in our own head that grow very loud with which He has to compete for attention. Voices of anxiety, fear, doubt, self-loathing, guilt, shame, pride, and self-reliance. And if all of those voices were not enough, there are the myriad of voices shouting at us from the outside world: promptings to spend, promptings to take vengeance, promptings to distrust, promptings to overpower.
His voice is gentle, and His knock is soft. And He will not force open the door; we must let Him in. And as we do so, we find that all the other voices grow quieter, as our attention focuses more and more on the One who only desires to feed us, free of charge, with Himself at His eternal supper.
