Have you ever REALLY considered how awesome this is — the fact that we can talk to God personally? It wasn’t always like this. Before Jesus came only a few people had this privilege and priests were designated to go before the Lord on behalf of the people.
Two words, “BUT NOW” make all the difference in the world. BUT NOW, Jesus has come, and He opened the door of salvation to all men; He opened the door of communication with God Himself. We don’t need anyone else to go to God on our behalf. We can, ourselves.
“O LORD our Lord how excellent is your name in all the earth!….When I consider your heaven, the work of your fingers, the moon, and the stars, which You have ordained; What is man, that You are mindful of him?” Ps. 8:1, 3, 4
This God of the universe, the Creator of all things, has loved us so much; He gave his only son to die for our sins and when He rose again, Jesus opened the way for us to come directly before the throne of grace; for salvation first and foremost, but then to be able to come to Him at any time, anywhere, and talk to Him about our biggest problems right down to the tiniest needs we may have. God says:
“Call unto Me, and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things which you do not know.” Jer. 33:3
Isn’t that awesome? Let’s never forget what a privilege we have. Are you talking to Him throughout your day.
