Before Our God


We can boldly go before our God
And in His Presence humbly bow
Seek His face and call His name…
He is near when we draw near to Him

Hebrews 4:16
Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

We were singing Holy, Holy, Holy recently in church on a Sunday morning, and it amazed me how a spirit of worship and oneness filled the room as it does every time we sing about God’s Holiness. When I think about His Holiness, I find myself more amazed that a Holy God would let me come to Him and call Him - Father! This Holy God lets me walk in close relationship with Him, and greatly desires this from me.

And all of this because Jesus gave us entrance to His presence through salvation. Jesus is the only way to the Father. And it was Jesus who taught us to pray and taught us to come before our God and call upon Him as our Heavenly Father. This relationship builds that position we have with Him that is secure and safe, we can take everything to Him in prayer with the ease of talking to a father, our Father.

Lord,
I am Your child
And this is how I come,
In the Presence of all Holiness
And the Father of my heart. 

John 14:6 
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."
