Welcome or Keep Away Click HERE to read the post in its original posting place.
I think I have only a quick observation for us this morning. Yesterday when I was out walking I noticed two signs posted on two lawns; the yards hosting the signs (and I assume two families) were living side by side; close neighbors we could say. One said ‘Private Property, No Trespassing’. The other said ‘Welcome’. I wonder if we as people wear such signs. I wonder if our countenance, our body language, even our words announce loud and clear: ‘No Trespassing – keep away’ or do we say ‘Welcome’ – come on in’ to those we encounter each day? I wonder if we put out such signs for the Holy Spirit of God too. I wonder if we say to Him, ‘Private Property – this part of my heart is off limits to You – No Trespassing – No messing in this, I can handle it just fine without You – I will do this my way’. I hope we don’t say that. I hope I don’t say that. I hope we put out the ‘Welcome’ sign to Him, inviting Him, even pleading with Him to get all up in our business, that He leave not one stone unturned as He lovingly cleanses and heals every crevice of our heart and soul.
ABBA, . . . I pray . . . (we) will hang out a welcome sign to You today and experience a day of joy and pleasure and laughter and holy productivity. I pray we will all hang out the welcome sign to You for You to get all up in our business, cleansing and healing every crevice of our hearts and souls. I pray we will be people who hold out welcome signs to every honest and hungry soul we meet, offering the sweet and holy Bread of Life to them. . . . Lord, make these days filled with Yourself, with peace and worship I pray. And we pray for each one named here, each with their individual needs and ask that You meet those needs; that they receive all the help and comfort and joy and healing that You in Your love and mercy have to give them. We pray for our IDOK Troops for their safety and protection today and for their safe returns home to family and friends. You know our hearts for this Nation, for Israel, for the building up, the empowering, the standing boldly that we desire for the Christian Church; make it so LORD in Jesus Name. Amen and amen.
