TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I’ve been calling to you throughout your life. Do you hear My voice knocking? Open the door to your life. Let Me make My home within you and you will be alone no more.
Let me talk a bit about salvation. You understand that the way you come into salvation is the same way that your salvation is sustained, right? God initiates and we respond.
The only way you became a Believer, the only way you walked in and embraced the gift of eternal life is because God initiated it in the beginning and then you responded. In fact, Jesus says this really cool thing in the last book of the Bible:
“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock…”
He’s initiating something. He’s bringing something to your attention.
“…if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” – Revelation 3:20
So, the same way you get into salvation is the same that salvation is sustained. God initiates and we respond. I guess that makes us first responders! Our purpose in this relationship is to respond to whatever it is He initiates in our lives.
What is God initiating in your marriage or your family? Is He trying to do a new thing in your work or ministry, your health or your financial wealth? Start paying attention and respond.
Remember, we love Him because He first loved us. Respond to His direction, His prompting and His Word. That’s how you sustain your salvation and finish the race.
