You Have Access by Faith

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in devotions

“Through Him also we have [our] access (entrance, introduction) by faith into this grace (state of God’s favor) in which we [firmly and safely] stand. And let us rejoice and exult in our hope of experiencing and enjoying the glory of God” (Romans 5:2, AMP).

Come on daughters of God! Let’s dissect this powerful scripture!

“Through Him we have access…”
Through Jesus we have access, and this access is not granted because of anything we’ve done, nor is it denied and withheld because of anything we haven’t done. It is through Jesus, and Him alone, that we are given access (see Ephesians 2:8–9).

“By faith into this grace…”
In this grace is the divine life God predestined for us to live. The storms will come and the weapons will form, but because we are firmly established in God’s divine love and favor, they will not prosper. We come into this grace with God and He closes the door behind us, sealing us with His Holy Ghost (see Isaiah 54:17; Ephesians 1:13).

“In which we stand…”
We’re not merely visiting; we stand in this amazing state of favor with God. We are seated together in heavenly places with Christ Jesus. We are in the palm of God’s hand and nothing, no one, and no devil can remove us from our designated place (see Ephesians 2:6; John 10:28).

“Let us rejoice and exult in hope…”
This is our attitude because we know our position in God. We can have boldness, confidence, and great expectation even when it looks hopeless. We can rejoice because we know God is who He says He is, and He will do everything He has said in His Word that He will do (see Ephesians 3:12).

“Of experiencing and enjoying the glory of God…”
We serve a great and wonderful God who not only wants us to believe but also wants us to receive His perfect will for our lives. He wants us to experience Him in every area and enjoy living under the spout where His glory pours out! (See 1 John 5:14; John 16:24.)

Prayer: My Father, your WORD is rich and it blesses my soul! Thank You for the access You’ve given me by faith into Your amazing grace! I give You full access into my life, and I receive by faith the access You’ve promised me. Help me God to lay hold of everything made available to me. No matter what I’ve done or haven’t done, I choose to live by faith and stand in Your divine favor. I repent of every sin, and I receive Your display of goodness in my life and around me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

A Message from the Lord

“Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass” Psalm 37:4-5, NKJV.

“I am going to bless you and you know it. It is time to completely trust Me that I surely will. What you know must translate into the actions of trusting Me. You must trust Me and do what My will is as You wait on Me. Let me steer you. Let me guide you. Let Me cause you to reign in your finances, reign on your job, reign in your home and family. You know I am going to do it, so choose to act like it is so. Have faith like it is so–right now. Let your trust in Me confuse the enemy. Let the knowledge of the truth of My word fill your heart with great joy. I’m going to do what I said I will do, but you must trust Me. Waiting doesn’t mean no. Waiting means I am preparing My best for you. Don’t you want My best, or do you want you own? Wait upon Me. Be still and know that I am God. Follow my Spirit and His wisdom that He gives, as a step-by-step plan is given when you pray to Me. Keep your eyes on Me and My will. Stay focused on My calling for you. Revolve your decisions around it. I WILL bless You! says the LORD.”
