Don't let the door hit you on the way out.... oh yes, that.
I've heard it a million different ways, from a million different people. It's rejection, it's imprisonment. I've heard it from people I've trusted, people I've build relationships, friendships, and loyalty to. I've heard it from family, life long friends, people I've admired, employers... and it stings.
It rang loud and clear again for me this week. You might have well screamed it in a Bose Speaker at a Football game of an undefeated team, for all the fans to hear. I heard it...you could have whispered it... I heard it.
That's why God was waking me up... he knew I heard it too, and 4:30 a.m. was not soon enough to get rid of it. When you break out of a spiritual prison, the enemy comes after you like a prison warden and calls in as many guards as he can to bring you back. He hunts you down, before you can exercise your spiritual legs and get them strong. He doesn't like freedom, he likes power, greed, control, fear and bondage. But what he hasn't figured out is that you've climbed on God's shoulders this time...and through Christ, there's nothing you can't overcome. That's why God's here...at 4:30 a.m. ...to remind you of who he is.
God's like that you know, he hears the moments your heart breaks. Smiles don't conceal it, fancy talk doesn't cover it up, good deeds to try to keep yourself from dwelling on it doesn't fool him either...he sees your heart and he will walk with you until you let him heal it.
God says, I will never leave you or forsake you. You know...what people in the military call a "blue falcon"...yeah, God will never do that. You know when someone tells you that you and all your hearts troubles are too much drama...yeah God doesn't do that either. Because it's not the truth. And it's not just you he wants to get through to, he wants to whisper it in your ears so softly that you will scream it out from the rooftops.... YOU ARE LOVED, VALUED, ACCEPTED, AND WANTED....wanted...you....there's no door that will close behind you...God doesn't allow it...you don't have to worry about it hitting you on the way out...he only provides ways in...that lead to his truth.
