Creating Captivating Clarity

Devotional

Going beyond the Veil


Growing up in Florida, visiting Disney World was an annual pastime. At the time, I didn't know anyone my age who wasn't excited about the rides, the food, and the fun. The days leading up to my school's annual trip were full of anticipation and my friends and I could barely sleep the night before. 


On the day of our trip, we arrived at the Disney property and took the monorail to the theme park. When we arrived at the gate, our teacher realized she had left the tickets on the bus, and she had to go all the way back to get them. We had gotten to the park, but we couldn't get into the park.


So far in this Bible plan, we've come to the place of clarity, and now it's time to go into the depths of clarity.


We learned on Day 2 that when you begin turning towards God, God removes the "veil" – the hardness of mind and heart that maintains a separation from Him. This removal allows you to be open to the clarity, peace, and so much more that God has for you. The removal of this veil is the first blessing you receive when you turn towards God. 


Having the veil removed makes you moldable in God's hands, as He is the Potter and you are the clay. He begins molding and shaping you in His image, and the things that used to be second nature to you no longer feel the same. As He transforms you in the spirit, you’ll see the change in the physical.


But what happens beyond the veil? What happens when we actually step into the place of clarity? I don't know about you, but I’m not going to settle for just arriving at the gates; I want to go IN. If you're like me, you didn't come this far to just look through the gates at everything you've been praying about, you want to actually experience it all.


A different veil is mentioned in Matthew 27:51, which shares that when Jesus died, the veil of the temple was ripped in two from top to bottom. The veil in the temple separated the Holy place from the Holiest of Holies. The Holiest of Holies was where only priests could enter, it was where God's glory resides. When Jesus died, yet again, the veil of separation from the Holiest place of God was removed. 


We can now go into the place where true freedom, clarity, grace, peace, and joy (and so much more) resides. We can say, "I reside in an abundant place," no matter where we are or what is happening in our lives. We can enter into the Holiest of Holies through prayer and meditation on God's Word at any moment and at any time. 


When you go into this place, beyond the veil, know that:


If you've been feeling limited, you have full access.


If you've been feeling forgotten, you are remembered.


If you've been feeling lost, you are found in Christ.


Everything you need, you now have in Him.

You can go deep, and as you do, you're receiving a full refreshing in your spirit, mind, and body. You will look and see with clarity, and as far as you can see, the territory is yours. Everywhere you step is miraculously blessed.
