“The veil is upon their heart. Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the veil shall be taken away. Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” 2 Corinthians 3:15-17
My heart was once veiled to the truth. The truth that I am not what they said I was. When you hear something repeatedly, no matter how false it is, it begins to disguise itself as truth. That’s how the deceiver works. He reiterates himself until you believe. And he uses broken people to break you. Because “he came to steal, kill, and destroy”. (John 10:10 part a). And he will ravage your heart if you let him.
But Jesus!” He came that we may have life and have it more abundantly!” (John 10:10 part b).
He unveils our hearts so that we may see the truth. That we may see Him.
I imagine it’s like the groom removing the veil from his brides face, publicly declaring what’s his with a kiss.
He rushes in like the wind and mends our brokenness. And declares us His.
And He sets us free.
Beautiful things happen when we stand before the King with unveiled heart.
He turns our broken into beautiful. He replaces all the not good enoughs with “My grace is sufficient for you”. (2 Corinthians 12:9) He replaces all the not pretty enoughs with “Beautifully and wonderfully made in My image.” (Psalms 139:14). He replaces all the unloveds with “nothing shall be able to separate us from the love of God” (Romans 8:38-39). He replaces the alone with “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5).
He redefines us.
So I stand before the King with unveiled heart.
