For through him we both have our access in one Spirit unto the Father.
In whom we have boldness and access in confidence through our faith in him.
I have access to the Father!
Have you really thought about that phrase? Really tried to get that? It's something I "know." A truth I've been told and read in God's Word. But today it hit me right between the eyes. I love how God does that! I know this passage. I've read it and even memorized it. But today I saw and heard that verse like never before. I HAVE ACCESS to GOD THE FATHER, the creator of the universe, the savior of the world. I can fearlessly come into God's presence. He welcomes me! I can enter directly into God's presence through prayer.
Oh how this makes me re-evaluate my prayer life. I don't want to take advantage of God. To not take prayer serious. I am entering God's presence when I pray. This amazes me.
Thank you, Lord Jesus, Father God, for the power of prayer. Thank you for loving me enough to grant me direct access to you. I am sorry for the times I take advantage of you, for not taking serious the power of prayer. Help me to remember the seriousness of coming to you.
