My Daily Devotional

Open Your Hearts

“I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.”
Ephesians 3:16-17

As I look out my window this morning, I see a beautiful golden autumn day, and feel the presence of God all around me. However, I realize that many around me are feeling all alone, as much is happening in their lives and they are so confused. I know they are reaching out to God to help them deal with their loneliness, but don’t feel His healing touch. God is also reaching out to you, but there are reasons He may not be getting through. You see, God wants to occupy that space in your heart, and give you His peace and His comfort, but may be finding the door locked to your hearts. Your hearts may be filled with too much hurt, confusion and sorrow, that you are not allowing God to enter. You may be keeping your heart filled with too much un-forgiveness, too much pride, too much worry, too much self centeredness that you do not have room for God to come in. You may be depending upon yourself to solve all your problems, instead of trusting and having faith in God to carry your burdens for you. You need to realize that you need to empty your hearts of all your worries and cares, and all the pressures that you are carrying, and turn all these over to God. It is only when you rid yourself of these burdens will your hearts be ready to receive God, as all your cares, your worries, your burdens will be turned over to Him. Trusting and having faith in God to come into your hearts is the only answer that you have to have God’s peace and comfort in your life.

Robert William Brock, Jr. I was born in Pineville, Kentucky, the son of Robert William Brock and Irene Napier, I grew up in the beautiful southeastern part of Kentucky.

After retiring from health care I have devoted the past ten years to a ministry, having founded and directed the Nehemiah Network, which provides assistance to the needy people in our area, by bringing together the numerous community organizations, churches and businesses to work collectively to meet the community needs. The Nehemiah Network concept has now spread throughout the nation and over 10,000 programs have been developed, in almost all the states, adopting the framework of the Network.
