Laid Bare

In the previous season I brought you to a place of deep surrender, calling you to your knees and asking for a complete ‘yes’ to me. It blessed my heart to hear your heartfelt cries and full conviction that you were ‘all in’ for me.

But now I am requiring you to be laid bare. 

The surrender of the previous season now needs to make way for the deepening abandonment of a spirit spilled out before me. Your desire to surrender to me at all costs has led to your pure heart. But you must still pursue purity. You are set apart. But you must still long for holiness. The place of surrender brought you to your knees, but now I require you to keep being relentless in your vulnerability in me. For it is only in this place that I can continue to strip away the influences of the world that remain, creating in you an undivided heart that unashamedly beats for me.

Activation: Ask God to bring you back to the moment when you fully surrendered your ‘yes’ to him. Remember how it felt to be on your knees before him. Now ask Holy Spirit to widen, stretch, and deepen that ‘yes.’ Watch as that ‘yes’ is laid out fully on the ground in front of you. What does that look like? What is that deeper requirement of being laid bare that the Lord is asking of you in this season?

Hebrews 4:13 (NIV)

Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

Psalm 51:16-17 (NIV)

You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it; you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings. My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise.
