Access To His Presence
April 17, 2023
“Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence.” Ephesians 3:12 (NLT)
Our relationship with Jesus Christ should be the most important relationship that we have. It is through our relationship with Him that we have access to places and things that we would never be able to access without being connected and in relationship with Him. When we pray, we do not pray in our own name or the name of our denomination or Church, but we pray in the name of Jesus, and that gives us access to the ear, heart, and presence of God. The Scripture reminds us, because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence. I encourage you today to keep your relationship with Christ strong. It is because of your faith in Jesus that you have access to the throne room of God and can be in His presence. It is in the presence of God that you receive blessings untold. It is in His presence that you find joy, peace, and love. It is in His presence that the broken things and places in your life are fixed and whatever needs healing, is healed in His presence. No matter what things may look like or how long you think Jesus is taking to come through for you, keep your faith and trust in Him and He will see you through. All my trust and faith is in Jesus and I know that He will never fail me. It is because of my relationship and faith in Him that I can go boldly and confidently to the throne of grace and have access to the presence of God. Since I will always put my faith in Jesus and have a relationship with Jesus, I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”
Lord thank you for saving me and allowing me to have a relationship with you. Thank you for allowing me access the the presence of God. Thank you for always loving me, and thank you for being my friend. I love you Lord. In Jesus Name Amen.
