Lift up your heads, O gates! and be lifted up, O ancient doors! that the King of glory may come in. (Psalm 24:7)
Even though Jesus is infinitely powerful, He will never force you to act against your will. As a result, the decision to let Him help you with your problems rests with you. Amazing, isn’t it?
Here’s what I wrote in Give Up Worry For Good…
The decision to open the door is one that only you can make. Although he wants to be a part of your life, Jesus will not force open the door. Make no mistake about it, however: he will knock and knock again. Before you wonder why he never seems to knock on your door, let me pass along one other piece of information. It is especially important if you’re a worrier. Every time you are afraid, Jesus is knocking on your door.
What is frightening you today? That is Jesus knocking on your door. Will you let Him in?
