Imagine a wall. It needs to be torn down.
* The drywall on this side is made from false religion and lies we believe.
* The dry wall on the other side of the wall is made from lack of vision.
* The header is made of bitterness, the studs of unbelief, and the footer of lack of trust.
At first it makes no sense. How are those things even related? But when one looks closer and realizes what the lie is, then one begins to understand.
I have personally been working on tearing down an old wall.
- For years, I have been frustrated, trying to push it over.
- For years, I have felt like God was unfair, requiring so much more from me, while giving others amazing encounters.
I felt as if I had to work like crazy for every spiritual breakthrough I got, requiring a much higher standard than others, with God requiring perfection before blessing me. The truth is that God does not require perfection. He likes when we come into His presence, which is not possible when unbelief, bitterness, etc. are involved.
God has good plans for us. He is good. He is GOOD. He knows what will capture our hearts and draw us to Him. He is chasing our hearts, but our defenses are up. We keep running and holding Him out at arm’s length!
When we have this view of God, we keep ourselves in the outer court, where illegitimate children abide. We need to believe that God is GOOD, lay down our defenses, and allow Him in all the way. When we trust the Father (who is safe, by the way), we can get into the inner court, where true children abide; or even better yet, we can get past the veil and into the forbidden Holy of Holies, where only the priest is allowed. Jesus became our High Priest and tore the veil so that we can enter into true intimacy with our Father.
