TOPIC: LIMITLESS ACCESS TO GOD
SCRIPTURE: “And, beloved, if our consciences [our hearts] do not accuse us [if they do not make us feel guilty and condemn us], we have confidence [complete assurance and boldness] before God.” 1 John 3:21 (AMPC)
Some people are unable to pray boldly because their consciences bother them. There are things they need to repent of and commitments they need to make to do things differently. If that is the case with you, then just do it. If something is wrong in your life, don’t spend the rest of your days feeling bad about it, do something about it!
Ephesians 3:20 tells us that God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above and beyond all that we could ever dare to hope, ask, or think. Are you daring in prayer? Are you expecting enough? The devil wants us to believe we must go to God with head hung low, telling Him how terrible we are. He wants us to believe that we dare not ask for too much, because after all, we don’t deserve anything. Satan is afraid of bold, daring, confident, fearless, and expectant prayer.
I love the Scripture I am about to quote, so please take time to look it over carefully. In Whom, because of our faith in Him, we dare to have the boldness (courage and confidence) of free access (an unreserved approach to God with freedom and without fear) (Ephesians 3:12 AMPC).
Prayer Starter: Lord, I am challenged to rise up and be more daring in prayer. I truly believe that You are able to do abundantly more than I have ever dared to ask or think, amen.
