  “That’s when some of the people of Jerusalem said, “Isn’t this the one they were out to kill? And here he is out in the open, saying whatever he pleases, and no one is stopping him. Could it be that the rulers know that he is, in fact, the Messiah?” John‬ ‭7:25-26 MSG‬

Good morning, OpenHeart, 

Jesus, born in a manger, in human skin, spent his entire lifetime digging deep and opening up. He could’ve run. But, He opened up more. 

So, you have mind-shackles. Open up more.

Be open to other ways of seeing things. Sounds easy … seems impossible. Openness is not a passive exercise. You actually have to do openness. 

Sometimes, opening up means ripping your heart wide open. Stepping back in the ring, as did our Savior. 

Sometimes, it means staying just one minute longer when you only want to RUN. Like when Jesus bent down and wrote with His finger in the sand. 

I bet He felt the fear and tightened a bit. He knew what He was dealing with, and stepped out in front of it. His folks had felt fear and chose to open up and step on through it. 

Fear lets you know what you’re dealing with – so you can get out in front of it. 

God knows. 

Sweat, tremble stretch: as you steer your heart and mind to open up, you need to feel what’s in your body so you know what needs to be released. You need to notice it, so the Spirit can provide it a way out. 

Wince, moan, and holler: Reread that again … tightness has a sound. And so does openness. 

Declare, announce, and affirm: I’m afraid, God, but I trust You. I’m doing this anyway. I want what is on the other side so much that I am willing to get open and risk being hurt (again). 

Ask, pray, invoke: Holy Spirit, help me expand into this opportunity. Angels, fight with me for this opportunity. God Most High, show me how to unfold. 

Recall, Remember, Refine: I’ve done this before and I can do it again. God is with me. Others have gone before me and paved the way. I have angels that are on my side, rooting for and showing savvy solutions.

Lean back, have faith: when you open, there’s no guarantee that all will work out like you plan, or that you won’t get injured further along the way, but when you decide to be more open, that’s the only way that His strength, truth, and the power of the Deliverer can move through you. 

Wake up.

Move in front of your fear.

Open.

Go.
