Bold Access to the Throne
By Cathy Irvin
- Have you ever had an important problem that you needed
help with and you asked your father, “Dad, I need your advice
on something”? Dads like feeling important and challenged.
They want to share their wisdom. But what about asking Dad for
the little things —like the car keys, money, or even permission
to leave the house? All too often we fear asking too many questions.
We fear becoming a pest, or we fear rejection.
However, we have a Heavenly Father who says it is His good pleasure
to give us the kingdom. He wants to give good gifts to His children.
We can just walk into the throne room anytime. That’s right.
The door is not locked because it is not even shut. It is wide
open. We have access to our Father every moment of every day.
At no time is it ever inconvenient to go into the heavenly throne
room of God and say, “Father, I am confident that You hear
me and will answer me, so I am making my requests known to You.”
He said in His Word to come boldly, so just go on in there and
speak to your Father. He is our Abba Father; that means He is
our Daddy God.
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 (Hebrews 4:16).
We have been given so much more than the keys to the family car;
we have been given the keys to the kingdom that unlock blessings
as we believe God and exercise our faith and our rights as a child
of God. We are told to ask and it shall be given unto us.
If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in
prayer." (Matthew 21:22).
"Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has
been pleased to give you the kingdom (Luke 12:32).
When we go to our Heavenly Father, we can trust He has the best
answer for us. It may be a yes, a no, or a wait. He sees the beginning
from the end. He knows what to give us, so what are you waiting
for? Walk on in. You can boldly access the throne room of grace.
Your Father is waiting to meet you this very moment.
