Praying in the Spirit Using the Word of God for Week #32

Entry# 032 Praying to a God who is Still on the Throne

Jesus is King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  We owe Him our worship and praise, as we regard Him as the center of our joy. Because of the finished work of Jesus Christ, He is now seated on the right hand of the Father making intercessions for us daily. But often we remove God from the throne of our hearts. We worship the gifts instead of the giver. We place our self-effort on the throne, trying to live life without God’s help and guidance. We seat people we love and admire on the throne, and bow down to their every whim. We even worship our own agendas, emotions, and ideas at the foot of the throne where God is supposed to be high and lifted up. God is a jealous God; He will have no other God before Him. Life doesn’t work well when we do not have Christ at the center and on the throne. Only He knows the beginning from the end, and only He loves us unconditionally.  When we do not make seeking and worshipping God a priority, we can never fully rest in His provisions and plans. God becomes to us what we see Him to be. We limit His ability to do great things in our lives because we do not see Him as the Everlasting Lord.Yet, He will always be the King on the throne, whether we acknowledge it or not. He just will not be the King of our lives, resting, ruling, and abiding inside of us forever. We miss the ability to experience the fullness of God’s amazing love, joy and peace when we displace Him in our hearts. We may as well worship Him now as King of Kings. For in the end, every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess that He is the Lord, high, lifted up, upon the throne of God. God is in control because He is still on the throne yesterday, today and forever more.
