If Isaiah 1:18 makes sense to you. Count your blessings.
There is something rare and beautiful happening in your spirit. The God of heaven is standing and waiting at your front door. He is knocking at the door. He is waiting for a response. He is waiting to see if you will open wide the door. The door of your mind. The door of your heart. The door of your life. This is a sacred and holy time for all those who will open the door.
Sadly, many will not open the door. Instead, they will lock the door, and bar the gate. That would be the majority response to God’s knocking.
For Like Cain, (in Genesis 4:1-15) they will reject the reasonings of God. They will feel perturbed. They will end up offended by the reasonings of God. Therefore God’s counsel in His Word will be unwanted and unappreciated, because the mind has already been made up, the heart has already been hardened, the eyes have already been blinded, the flesh has already been twisted and perverted, and the reasonings of God’s Wisdom will be rejected. This has been happening throughout history from the very beginning.
But when the soul of a man stops in his tracks just long enough to hear and learn the Righteousness of God, this is a solemn and holy moment. This is something rare. Something beautiful. Something Holy. If such a man would continue to listen and to learn the counsel of God, great things could be expected as a result.
If that man would allow the workings of God to enter into his life, miraculous transformations will not be far away. In fact, they will be expected and predicted if such a man should continue to listen to the voice of heaven and receive the knowledge and wisdom and counsel of God.
Revelation 3:19-21 (KJV)
9 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
