“’Let the heart of those who seek the Lord rejoice; seek the Lord and be strengthened, seek his face always.’ (Psalm 105.3-4) Entering into prayer today, I too am seeking the Lord, seeking his face, looking for the signs of his presence in my life, gently guiding me in truth and peace and love.” (“Pray as You Go”)
What stands in the way of this beautiful intention in your life? The revelation and owning (confessing) of that reason is the beginning of freedom. The space of knowing “it” to be means I have stepped out of “it” for a crucial instant. That “place” where I stand, as I know my own hindrances, is the same space from which I can choose over against “it” and live. It is my heart. It is Christ in me and deep within Him it is the true me in Him.
This is what it means for me to say, “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner.”
Lord, I desire to know this place, live from this place unceasingly.
