24/7 Lifeline

In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.
— Ephesians 3:12

When we become Christians, we become sons and daughters of God. While we always want to have reverence, respect, and awe before Almighty God, through Christ we can come boldly before the throne to make our petitions known. 

Like a child who marches right into the midst of everything to climb upon her daddy's knee, we have a loving God that receives us with open arms. Ephesians tells us that we can access Him with confidence. 

If you look at the original languages, and cross reference with other scriptures, we get that boldness here likely means "freedom of utterance." What a comforting thought. Through our new birth in Jesus, we have freedom to be in communication with the King of All the Universes.

We have 24/7 access. He never wearies or tires and is always waiting to hear from us. 

What an honor we have to come before our Heavenly Father boldly. I think about Moses and how boldly and directly he talked to God. 

We may not be able to handle the glory of seeing God face to face, but we can communicate directly with Him anytime. Are you taking advantage of that great priveledge?

Talk to the King of The Universe. He is listening. 


To Ponder:

Am I using my 24/7 access line?


Prayer:

Heavenly Father, King Of The Universe, I come in your presence to talk with You boldly as you have given me access to do through Your Son Jesus. Thank You, Father, for always hearing and answering my prayers as you manage the universe. For always having time for me day or night. 

I give my petitions over to You and I continue on in faith because I know you have them all. 

Thank You. In Jesus Name.
