Each day, I reflect upon a word or phrase from the readings of the day. I encourage you to do the same and perhaps incorporate that word or phrase into your daily prayer.
…and the Lord opened her heart to pay attention to what Paul was saying. (Acts 16:11-15)
OPEN HEARTS: The Lord wants to open our hearts, too. It requires a willingness on our part. The Lord does not want to pry open our hearts. He wants free access, which requires us to have a willing spirit.
A heart opened by the Lord makes us attentive to Him. It gives us insights to the Word; it gives us an appreciation for the gifts of others; it inspires gratitude for our many blessings; and it welcomes opportunities to grow our relationship with Him.
The Lord wants to open our hearts. Let’s give Him access.
