“The good news is, no matter how shaky your heart-foundation might be, every person is wired up for electricity at birth. When God fashioned and created you, He wired Himself into the framework of your being . . .”- Christa Black Gifford
Christa Black Gifford continues Chapter 1 of Heart Made Whole as she offers a heart check. First, Christa reminds you that the Holy Spirit’s abiding presence makes your heart forever capable of lighting up with new life. Most noteworthy, this inner realm is the origi of every move you make, word you speak, thought you think, and action you take.
In other words, Ms. Gifford underscores, your insides produce your outsides. Furthermore, since you’re the landlord of your heart, you control who takes up residence. Therefore, Christa cautions:
“. . . as long as you’re harboring old wounds, beliefs, unforgiveness, and lies — allowing them to make themselves at home in your heart — Jesus won’t bust in and kick them out. He needs your permission. . . . He needs you to give Him acces to every floor, every room, and every locked, forgotten space.”
Therefore, the author compares grace to a lifetime warranty that covers the process of your heart transformation. As a result, grace empowers you to live differently. In addition, Christa finds that heart transformation involves living in relationship with God, who abides within. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we learn to surrender more and more inner heart space to Jesus.
