A Web walk each day with Peggie through a home called Peggie’s Place! . . . .
Remember when the Berlin Wall came down? You’re not THAT old?? Grin……Well, let me fill you in…….(See Newseum: The Berlin Wall and “Reagan: Tear Down This Wall.”) It was a remarkable day in history–we watched, with joy and thanksgiving, as a people in bondage saw blessed freedom with no wall between!
Walls are not fun–and you may know someone–or you may BE someone–that’s got WALLS up all around–you’re unreachable, untouchable and unredeemable….for you see, as long as the walls are up, even GOD won’t crash through–you are on your own! But wait–you are NOT alone–I see shadows on those walls–shadows in eerie living (or dying!) color–they haunt and hold you captive…have you had a good look at them lately?
See the BLUE shadow. It’s got some black “overtones”–and it’s not singing–unless it’s singing the blues. Overwhelmed by despair, disappointment and depression, this dark, sad shadow fills the walls of your heart with graffiti from the grave!
Now watch the RED shadow–this one almost jumps OFF the wall! It’s mad at the world, at family and friends, at circumstances, at self–and at God. It’s been hurt–imprinted by the hard stuff of life, innoculated with the toxic taste of bitterness, and enlarged to its maximum height, width–and depth.
But wait–there’s one more shadow, almost covering the entire wall–it’s WHITE with fear, its fists tightly clenched, its nerves moving silently and destructively through its form. Fear of life, fear of death, fear of persons, people, things–and fear of God.
Dark shadows on hopeless, heavy walls of life–and no crayon-removing agent to erase their sinister shapes; no rubbing alcohol to cleanse their gaping wounds…blue, red, white shadows on the walls of your heart–and no hope….OR is there?
Yes, there is HOPE….hope eternal from the throne of God. Look beyond the walls and see the Blood of Jesus Christ covering, cleansing, creating Light where darkness dwelt–the pure white Light of His Love. Can the walls come down? Can the shadows be dispelled? Of course–when you let in the Light, the powerful Light of God’s love! Are you willing to do it today?
Just as the walls of Jericho fell with the sound of the trumpets, God can do the same in your life today. The Mighty Warrior from Heaven’s Halls wants to blast those walls and cast away those shadows with the Light of His Love. Let the sound of victory be heard in YOUR life today–and the walls MUST fall in Jesus’ Name! Believe it, claim it–and have a great day!
Scripture: “…thanks be to God, who giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:57).”
Prayer: “Lord, the walls are up in my heart’s house; shadows fill the surface; nothing will erase them away–NOTHING but Your PRECIOUS BLOOD which I claim in my life this day. Eradicate the shadows, tear down the walls, and may I be FREE to serve You, In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
