There is a wall that we all build. We think it protects us. “Tear it down.” The wall was begun when we were a child. We were scared. We were unsure. We were selfish. So we built. “Tear it down.” We accepted Christ, but the wall remained. And we tried to look over the wall, but it was too tall. It kept us safe from the world–or so we thought. “Tear it down.” 

We looked around and saw Jesus was by our side, and so we chose to stay behind our fortress with Him. But Jesus said, “Tear it down. It is your prison. I am your fortress. And go to the world and proclaim that I dismantle walls and build Kingdoms instead.”

“The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.” (Psalm 18:2)

I hope this encourages you to tear down the wall today.
