This morning, as I
lay in bed, I heard a knock. I knew it wasn’t a physical knock. It was a knock
in the Spirit. It was very distinct and sounded like someone was knocking on
the back door of our home. I asked the Lord to show me what He was saying. Immediately,
I saw the picture of a beautiful old home on a tree-lined street with a large back
porch and a screen door. The knock was not someone asking permission to enter.
It was the knock from a good friend down the street who always had your
permission to enter your home.
Kingdom knocking is
taking place today. God is making an announcement of His intentions. Some of
you will experience the arrival of answered prayers and long-awaited visitations.
It is not that you are unfamiliar with these coming answers or visitations. You
are well aware of each request you made to God and after making them you went
on with the business of life. These
requests were filed away in faith waiting on the Lord to bring them to fruition
because their fulfillment would require His supernatural intervention and
empowerment if they were to become a reality. Your assignment was to continue
to stand in believing faith. That faith is about to be rewarded.
Just as a good
friend can assume a knock followed by a friendly-sounding, “Hello”, is all they
need to announce their arrival and step into your home, so it will be today with
you and God. God has arrived and assumed the same right of entry you would
extend to good a friend. Answers to your prayers and the arrival of long
awaited visitations are standing on your back porch ready to knock announcing
their arrival. This will be a good day!
