Walls provide shelter and protect us from outside elements. They are constructed to provide strength and define our space of purpose. When walls are built, we feel protected from the world, and cradled by the cocoon which holds us in one place.
It can be comforting to live inside walls of space we create for ourselves, but often we donít feel content. We hide behind doors of emotion and consider others will not see the heart of whatís inside.
God sees whatís behind the walls we build. He lovingly opens our hearts to recognize when there is something missing. He teaches us how to discover His perfect peace, and find room for hope to be welcomed inside.
God longs for us to trust in Him. He shows us we are worthy of His grace, and reminds us we can do great things. God can tear down walls we have managed to build around ourselves. Only He can provide the way for us to understand there is nothing that can ever separate us from His love.
"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.Ē Romans 8:38-39 NIV
