IS YOUR SPIRITUAL FIREWALL BLOCKING GOD?
Just like a computer firewall, we all develop an internal system to protect our heart from pain. A spiritual & emotional firewall, the height and density of which usually depends on how much we've been hurt before.
We probably don't even realize we have one, yet while they do a great job shielding and blocking the bad things in our lives, sadly they can also prevent the good things from reaching the tender part of our heart underneath.
Yet, it's that tenderness, the kind-hearted gooey-centre inside our often hard-shell, that is actually responsible for flooding our whole being with God's love and contentment.
Even under all the layers of unbelief, your heart KNOWS you are loved and chosen by your Heavenly Father. And when we allow it access to the sunshine of His love, by gently letting down our guard to Him, it can swell and take over: washing away all the anxiety and the pain we are so afraid of.
Is there something you can lay down and surrender to God today? An anger, a frustration, a memory, an accusation?
Let your spiritual firewall pause and allow His fresh wisdom, comfort, and infinite power to flow through you today.
