MOBILE THRONE

‘Let all that I am praise the Lord…’ Psalms 103:2 NLT

 

So, as we’ve gathered, God is pretty massive.

He casually threw the stars into space.

Breathed life into your lungs.

Healed that friend you prayed for.

When you start to get to know God and His power, like, really get your head around it, it’s mind-boggling.

The Bible refers to Him as ‘light’. Darkness cannot touch Him.

So… does that mean that we can’t even get close to Him?

We might get so caught up thinking about his power that we… well… miss the point.

So, how should we approach God?

Not cowering in a corner, in a special ‘holy’ place, or on a prayer mat. But Jesus taught us to pray – ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name…’

The word ‘hallowed’ basically means ‘the highest’. We can pray to the highest power on our own, in our hearts.

What?

Yes – you know the verse ‘your body is a temple’ (1 Cor. 6:19)? Well, it very literally is. Your body is a mobile throne for God.

Jesus did all the necessities to remove any blockade, difficulty (or temple curtain) that stops us from accessing God.

Awesome.

And because of that, he most likely really cares about you (like a lot lot). You can approach the Highest, in confidence, today.

 

What now?

Are there places or times you just don’t usually consider praying to God?

Maybe it’s at the supermarket, a friend’s house while you’re watching TV, during a conversation with a teacher / lecturer / boss. His throne (His power) is mobile and wants to be invited into all places. Think about it.
