"through Him we have our access in one Spirit to the Father."
I remember the first time I read Job 1:6, "Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them." My reaction to that verse was, "Wow! Satan had access to God? He could go into His presence and talk to Him?" The thought astounded me. Fast forward to this side of the cross; to us. WE have access to God. We are able to go into His presence through the Spirit. Are we taking advantage of the opportunity? Do we pray about our needs and return in prayer to thank Him for His answers? (Philippians 4:6) Maybe we take advantage of the opportunity sometimes, but not as often as we might. If so, let's begin today to take advantage of our remarkable opportunity to have access to the Father.
Heavenly Father, I need You. I need Your strength, healing, and empowerment to live rightly before You. Thank You that I have access to You. Thank You for Your love, forgiveness, grace, and empowerment. Make my life a reflection of You. In Jesus' name, Amen.
