Our Home – A Devotion

Today, I would like to share my latest devotion written at Valentine’s Day earlier this year. I hope your heart will be blessed…

Our Home.

“All who love me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and we will come and make our home with each of them.” John 14:23 NLT

At our church retreat, the speaker spoke on the booklet My Heart, Christ’s Home by Robert Boyd Munger. He shared when Jesus is at the center of our being, we have total intimacy. All conflict or dissonance goes away, leaving just peace and joy. If we take off our masks, allowing Him to see our true selves, He will show us His true self, without our projections. In a moment of silence, the speaker asked us who was at the center of our lives? In a hushed voice, I heard the Lord say, “Yourself.” Shocked, I believed Jesus was already at the center, since I constantly seek His will in my life.

That night as I lay in my tent, looking up at the redwood trees, I prayed; “Lord, please come make your home in my heart.” His presence filled me. “I am the intimacy you seek. I can fill all those empty places you try to fill with other things. I am enough. I am the gift”. Amazed, I whispered, “Thank you, Jesus.”

Have you really given Jesus home in your heart? He wants to give you true intimacy with Him, if only you ask. -copyright 2015
