When you are walking through trouble, is Jesus your King?
Do you run to the Throne Room to seek an audience with Him? Lay yourself on the altar where He is worshiped there and expect only that which He bestows? No hidden hopes or agenda, and no withholding from Him a secret anger that He is going to fail you?
What about the times when you are glad and restored and happy and full of zest? Do you still seek the King? Is Jesus the one who gave you your joy or do you take credit for your own achievement?
Lord, I just saw you, extending your sceptor to everyone who reads this. You are smiling . . . you know exactly where we are and what we’re thinking. That is such a relief! I am touching the knob of your sceptor now, and you are drawing me into yourself. We are all here! Thank you, Jesus.
