When you are going through challenges and experiencing crises moments, you might feel like God does not care about the deep pains and hurts that you have internalized in your soul. Now it has become a part of you, that has made you build a defense wall around you to hinder people from developing relationships with you. It is time for a change, it is time to keep it real in the presence of God because He care so much about you. He wants to know how you are doing today, who offended you at work and why you are so angry that you are unwilling to forgive and let go .
Keep it real for God to heal your broken heart. He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds (Psalm 147:3). When you are wounded or hurt and you let go in complete transparency, He initiates the healing process for He is the Restorer of your soul. During the healing process He removes every obstruction that the physical eyes cannot see in the wound that slows down the process, Once its complete He bandages up the wound.
Keeping it real in the presence of God is important for us to develop a deeper level of intimacy with the Lord. He wants to know what you are going through, where it hurts and the pains that you have numbed in your heart in pretense that everything is okay. When you are broken, crushed, bitter about life challenges, the ups and downs of life. Maybe offended by the way you are treated by your close friend, business partner or confidant. Speak to Abba Father, pour it out to Him, open up the wounds of bitterness, unforgiveness, offence, grudges so He can bind the wounds and make your heart whole again. Get into a one to one, me to You, Daughter to Father conversation in the secret place. The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves such as have a contrite spirit. (Psalm 34:18)
Perhaps you are wondering where to start because there are a lot of junks, toxic wastes stored up in your heart and you think it is too much for Almighty God to handle. I have good news for you, His yoke is easy and His burdens are light (Matthew 11:28-30). He has been waiting for so long to hear your voice. If you sow in tears, you will reap in joy, if surrender in fear you will experience the abundance of His faithfulness. Nothing is too difficult for God to handle, He is not the Author of confusion but the Author and Finisher of your faith. Start today not tomorrow by entering into His presence, enter God’s rest and open up your heart to Him. No more STOP SIGNS placed at the entrance to your heart.
