I will go before you & make the crooked places straight:
I will break in pieces the gates of brass & cut apart the bars of iron:
And I will give you the treasures of darkness & hidden riches of secret places, that you will know that I,
the LORD, which calls you by your name, am God
God is taming the nations,
God is terrifying their kings—
God has given us a direct connection
to His throne through prayer
Through God In prayer
We are unrestricted:
We can clear & pave the road.
We can break down the resistance,
We can smash the locks,
We can kick down barred entrances.
Our Lord leads us to His buried treasures,
Our Lord opens to us His secret caches of valuables—
He assures us by calling us by our name
This is amazing individualized intimacy.
God is here,
His presence surrounds us
He who fills the expanse of vastness
has come down to us where we are
We bow at His feet & speak to Him. . . .
It’s not our idea it’s His
How amazing that He wants to be with us
We pour out our desires to Him
He wants all our aches & impossible longings
Not one syllable from our lips escapes His ear.
We speak to him as we would talk to our closest friend
