TOPIC- Don't Stop at the Gate
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
When you made Jesus the Lord of your life, one of the privileges you received was the right to come to the throne room of God any time you want to. Think about that! You have the right to go boldly before God and obtain whatever you need.
Even though that's clearly what the Bible says, many people don't act like the believe it. They go boldly into the throne room. Instead they think, I could never go in to where God is. I'll just stand out here and yell and hope He hears me. I used to be guilty of that myself.
I remember one day I was in prayer, begging and pleading, bombarding the gates of heaven for revival. After I'd been at it a little while, the Lord spoke to me. What are you doing? He said.
"I'm bombarding the gates of heaven with prayer for revival," I answered.
Kenneth, how big is My city? He asked me.
"As far as I can tell from what the Bible says, it's about 1200 cubits or somewhere around 1500 miles square and 1500 miles high."
Then why are you bombarding the gates? Assuming that My throne is in the middle of the city that leaves you about 750 miles short! And, by the way, He added, those gates aren't locked. Why don't you quit bombarding them and just come on in?
After I repented for mimicking old traditional prayers without thinking, I remembered that the Word says, "Come boldly to the throne" and I've been coming boldly ever since.
Do you need to receive something from God today? Don't waste time standing around outside heaven's gates. Through Jesus you belong in the very throne room of God. So come right on in. The door is always open for you.
Hebrews 4:14-16, 5:1-9
