How to approach the King
Let me start by saying that it doesn’t matter who is in the White House, Trump or Biden. God is still on the throne!!! Man is man and is imperfect. That is why we must put our trust in the only true and living God!!
King is defined as (1) the male ruler of an independent state, especially one who inherits the position by right of birth. (2) a male monarch of a major territorial unit, especially one whose position is hereditary and rules for life. King in Strong’s concordance as basileus- leader of the people, prince, commander, lord of the land.
Our King has not inherited his title by birth because before the foundation of the earth, “I AM.” He is the self-existent one (existing independently of other beings or causes). This truth may be difficult to reconcile as we know that a person is born into this earth by a woman. How can He be self-existent?
So how are we to approach the King? In the natural, we approach Kings and Queens with honor and respect. How much more so when we approach the King eternal. 1. Timothy 1:17 “Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory forever and Amen.” The Father gives us instructions on how to come before Him. Psalms 100 “Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto Him, and bless his name. Even in the book of Esther, there was a specific protocol Esther had to follow when approaching the King. At that time, a person could be put to death if they went into the inner court without being called. Esther 4:11 “ All the king’s servants and the people of the king’s provinces, do know that whosever, whether man or woman, shall come unto the into the inner court, who is not called, there is one law of his to put him to death, except such to whom the king shall hold out the golden sceptre, that he may live: but I have not been called to come in unto the king these thirty days.” How much more so are we to appropriately come before the King of Kings. There’s divine protocol in the Kingdom of God. We have to be mindful that although He is our Heavenly Father, He is also the creator of the world. Let us reverence His presence, give honor to His name, and always have a heart of thanksgiving, for He is worthy!
The Father desires to know you-yes you!
Father God, it’s in the name of Jesus that we approach your throne. We come to you with a heart of expectation. Father, we thank you for the opportunity to commune with you. We love you and adore you. We thank you that we no longer have to go through a priest to gain access to you! Father, we ask for forgiveness even as we forgive those who have trespassed against us. We desire to grow and look more like Jesus, who is the only way to salvation. Thank you for keeping and protecting us daily! Let us look to be a blessing and the answer to someone’s prayer. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
