Enter My gates with thanksgiving. Enter My courts with praise. Even in this present darkness, you must come into My presence. You come to the altar of sacrifice and surrender. But then you must go even deeper past the outer courts, the inner courts into My holy of holies. You are at the threshold of glory. Enter in and meet with Me face to face. Worship takes you into My throne room. You are seated in heavenly places with Me. So come up here. Enter into My realms of glory. Enter My strategy room. In My glory realm is where you will receive my blueprints. Be obedient to follow My instructions. You cannot do what you have always done. I have something new for you. Don’t strike the rock if I say to speak to the rock just because it worked last time, Come receive My new for you.
Striving comes from an orphan slave mindset. Rest in Me.
I am more interested in your heart than your gift. I am more interested in the process than the product. I am more fascinated by the race than the prize. You are trying to get somewhere, but I want to go on a journey with you. You are trying to produce and I Am trying to press. You want the new wine from Me, but I am trying to press it out of you. My love language is quality time. To come up higher is to go down deeper. Enter in.
“Serve the Lord with jubilation; Come before Him with rejoicing. Know that the Lord Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving, And His courtyards with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name.” Psalms 100:2-4
“Lift up your heads, you gates, And be lifted up, you ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in! Who is the King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, The Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, you gates, And lift them up, you ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in! Who is this King of glory? The Lord of armies, He is the King of glory. Selah” Psalms 24:7-10
