“You Have Access” by Kirk Hunt
Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant; Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.
Isaiah 56:6-7 KJV
There is no doubting, especially after reading the Old Testament, the privileged place of the Jewish people. They are His favored ones. Still, the blessed status of the Jews is not the whole story.
From the beginning, the Law and the Prophets made room and provision for foreigners and sojourners. Gentiles, known to some as goyim, have played critical roles in Jewish and Scriptural history. No matter how primary the Jewish people, God insisted there be access to Him for the rest of us.
You have access to God. Space has been reserved for you. Provision and place has already been made for your soul.
All you have to do is seek Him out. Even those who are favored must give place, just for you. Are you willing to seek out your place before His Throne?
Think: I already have free and clear access to God’s Throne.
Pray: “Lord, help me seek You out as one of Your adoptive children.”
