AxXess To God’z PreZenze

In seeking God’s presence, it’ s not about what we deserve. If it was, we wouldn’t have anything coming to us. It’s about the fact that He made the choice to die for us BEFORE we were born. He made the choice to forgive us BEFORE we sinned. He made the choice to Love us BEFORE we knew and Loved Him. God is a God of great mercy and graciousness. Doubts and fears are just poisonous arrows that keep us at an unnecessary distance from Him. He didn’t go through all that He went through just to abandon us. He did it so that He would always have access to us, and us access to Him. If we could just set aside our blinders of insecurity, we would notice there is a clear path and open doorway that lead directly to His throne!! Instead of letting the worries of this world ensnare and enslave you, focus on one of the great promises He gave to us:

“Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart, I will be found by you” declares The Lord…” Jer 29:12-14a

The key words here are “with all your heart”. If your heart is crowded with sin, doubt, insecurity,fear and worry, you can’t seek Him with all of your heart. Keeping your heart clean and clear is a daily thing that has to happen at His throne. It may even need to happen several times a day!! All that matters is that you make your way to His throne and then make a continual choice to stay there! Don’t let the enemy move you because, through the authority and power that you have through Christ, he has no ability to do so! He can ONLY be successful at pulling you away if YOU let him. It is solely by keeping your eyes and focus on God that you will never give the enemy room in your life!!

Abandon yourself to God and let Him transform you into the person He originally created you to be! Acknowledge Him in all your ways and trust Him wholeheartedly to lead you in ways and directions that are bigger than you could ever think or dream of for yourself!!! And in making your way to His throne remember to approach it with confidence:

“Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” Heb 4:16
