An Open Door
I remember once watching a flurry of secret activity going back and forth between the President and Vice President in my old company. My office was at the end of a hallway where I could see both of their doors. They kept going into each other’s office and closing the door for hours on end. Something was up but I didn’t know what and I was SO curious. I would have liked to be a fly on the wall inside that office.
As I stared at the closed door I felt the Lord spoke to me. I was an “outsider” in the plans of these two executives and I could only become an “insider” through their invitation. The Lord seemed to say that his office door – his throne room, was set up a different way. Anyone could come into his inner circle who wanted to. The key to his door was having a desire to press in. Working your way up not important; job titles irrelevant; knowing the right people unnecessary: he would let ANYONE in who truly wanted to be there.
Just think about sitting around in God’s throne room listening to his plans and strategies and watching the inner workings of all of creation. Think about being right there when he says; “I need someone for an assignment” and your hand flies up first. Jesus made this possible when he removed the barrier between us and the Father. Hebrews 4:16 say; “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace.”
YOU control how closely you sit to the Father’s throne. You don’t have to wish to be a fly on his heavenly wall. You are not an outsider unless you choose to be. See the sign on his door: “WELCOME, Please Come In.”
