"If a man cannot get through to God it is because there is a secret thing he does not intend to give up." - Oswald Chambers
The photo is of a tree in South India called the Royal Poinciana. It’s red flowers put it in a category of trees called “Flame Trees.” Red reminds me of passion. 
The Spirit ignites our hearts so that we are on fire for the Gospel, living, speaking, breathing and walking like Jesus. 
Our secrets put barriers between us and that life filled with passion, love and peace. But we can break them down with swords, cutting deep into the dark places of our hearts and exposing and surrendering them to God. 
The only way is through and it will likely be painful. What do I need to give up today?
