Child of the King!

Imagine yourself as the son or daughter of a king back in the days when a king really had all the power in whatever dominion he ruled.  As a prince or princess you would have had a lot of responsibilities, but you also have a lot of privileges, too.  One privilege is that as a small child, you never need an invitation to come into the presence of your loving daddy.  You can just run into the throne room and throw yourself into his arms.  I picture here the movie Anna and the King, and the king’s relationship with one of his younger daughters.  She could run into his arms any time and be welcomed, even during a formal political banquet.

Ok, if you’ve read my blogs up to this point you already know what I’m going to say!

Yes!  YOU are the son or daughter of the King of the entire universe!  Since YOU are His own creation, YOU have the right at any time of day or night and all times in between, to run into His presence and be welcomed there.  Not only welcomed, but swept up into His arms with a big hug and smile.  Even if He is sitting on His throne!

I can’t resist digressing a bit here.  Revelation 4 gives a picture of the throne room.  God sits on His throne with a rainbow surrounding it.  Other thrones are placed there for the 24 elders, but God’s is the most awesome.  All intelligent beings give praise to Him.  Jesus is there as well, in chapter 5.  He (Jesus) is worthy to open the scroll because He has provided a way for the 24 elders to be in heaven.  “Every creature” in heaven and earth praises both God the Father, and Jesus, the Lamb.  Daniel 7:9 & 10 describes the throne of the “Ancient of Days” as a fiery flame.  And before Him a “thousand thousands” ministered to Him and 10,000 times 10,000 stood before Him.  (A thousand was the highest numerical unit Bible writers use to describe a very large group.  Multiplied thousands are the equivalent of “uncountable.”)

Can you picture the throne room and the activity there?  Can you see how much God is revered and worshiped?  Can you begin to picture the majesty, brilliance, and awesomeness of God’s throne room?  Now here’s the punch line.

Into that amazing throne room, past all those angels and created beings, YOU run.  You may need help with something.  Or you may have a question.  Or you may simply want to tell your Father how much you appreciate something He’s given you.  And His response?

He sees you coming and His face lights up!  He holds out His arms for you to jump into!  And He stops all business in the throne room while He spends time with YOU.

Well, ok, so business probably doesn’t stop there.  And God can do many things at the same time, and be everywhere at once, so the analogy breaks down here.  But do you get the picture?

God is present and available to every human being on earth, at the same time that He is present and available to every created being in the entire universe.  We can’t explain that, we can only accept it.  There is a lot about God that we will never explain.

The point here is that God has time for YOU, His child.  God’s face and heart light up when YOU come to Him – for ANY reason.  What a reception you get!

1 John 3:1 says, “Behold, what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!…”

Please share your experiences or reactions to being a son or daughter of the King of the universe!

    Very well put. How can one imagine so much grief can compel on them if they knew what access they had to a true King! I believe this article will be very resourceful to all.

    Thank you,

    Hey Sherry,

    You are fast becoming one of my favorite bloggers right now. This is such a great post and really does explain to people that they are able to reach out to God at anytime with any problem. What a wonderful comfort that is for someone.

    I look forward to reading more from you.
    Beth 🙂

    • Thanks, Beth! I appreciate your kind words!

      It’s so awesome to me that God is within reach 24/7 for every single one of us. That boggles my mind. Even though I know He is the ultimate “Multi-tasker,” it’s still amazing to me that He is 100% mine at the same time that He is 100% yours. Guess we’ll be thinking on this throughout eternity!

    I am just now reading this in October. I love your description of God’s throne room and how I can run to Him at anytime, past the angels and others. And He SEES me! And pays ATTENTION to me! He doesn’t just notice me and then turn His attention back to the TV or newspaper or His other business…but actually gives me His full attention as long as I want it!!!! That makes me feel special and welcome! 24/7!

    • Hi Sue,

      Welcome to my blog! I’m glad you’re here — even though it’s October 🙂

      I so love that picture of God! And it’s actually true! God relates to you as if you were the only one He has to pay attention to. You ARE special AND welcome all the time!

  4. I do really love reading your article pastor sherry that comes from the word of god now I know that whatever happens God will always guide us in all the challenges in our life, all we have to do is simply call him by our prayers and seek for her guidance.
