Religion  ~ Take The Mask Off

I have heard this topic preached on so many times in the past but as I look back over my Christian walk over many years, I began to realise  some years ago that I substituted a relationship with Jesus Christ for religious activity during periods of my Christian walk. My religious activity covered personal pain and there was no true relationship where I could be totally honest in the place of prayer regarding how I felt about my life and the direction it was taking.

I thought the more religious activity I did the more I was pleasing God. But it was so far from the truth. I decided you know what, I am taking the religious mask off so what was underneath was exposed. 

I said God I am a mess, please come and heal my heart and all the bruising, cuts and infected wounds. It was a long process and I am still on that road. I took the first step and God honoured it. I realised that painful periods of my past had infected my relationship with my Heavenly Father and I needed healing.

A skilled surgeon knows where and how to cut with a scalpel in order to get to the root of a wound. He knows how deep to go and how much to take out. he also know how to stitch up the wound so only a hairline scare would be evident of the wound you once had. Jesus dear one, is the great physician of your soul.

God is faithful as he knows my weakness. He gave and is continuing to give me beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for morning and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.

I shared this to encourage you dear heart to not be afraid to take the mask off. Do not let pride convince you to keep the mask on. Expose what is underneath and let the Lord heal you. Be honest and open before him in the place of prayer. Let your healing begin.

🙏 Lord Jesus I lift up this precious reader to you. As they have read these words touch them in the place of their heart where they need healing. Help them Lord to take the mask off to begin the healing process with you. Wash them with the water of your word in Jesus name. Amen .

Restoration from Failure

” Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation and uphold me with thy free spirit” Psalms 51:12.

Restoration can be defined as

1. To give back to someone or something that was lost or taken.
2. To put or bring something back into existence or use.
3. To return something to an earlier or original condition by repairing or cleaning it.

Psalms 51:12 was part of David’s prayer to God after he slept with Bathsheba and murdered her husband. David lost the joy of his relationship with God because of it. His moral failure came between them. David’s inability to see his own wrong doing was covered by his drive to cover his failure at all costs and Psalms 51 is an expression of this.

He is asking God to bring back into existence their relationship and to restore it to it’s original state of communion.

God will never leave us in our failure if we turn to him with a repentant heart in prayer. He is quick to restore his relationship with us if we come to him with a child like faith and heart. Do not let your failure bury you, but let it propel you to seek his forgiveness and walk in the glory of restoration and love.
