In prayer have we learned the wonderful power of that phrase “boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus”? It means that we can talk to God as Jesus Christ did, but only through the right of His Atonement. We must never allow the idea that because we have been obedient, because our need is great, because we long for it, therefore God will hear us. There is only one way into the holiest, and that is by the blood of Jesus.
Spiritual certainty in prayer is God’s certainty, not a side-eddy of sanctimoniousness.
Reflection Question: When was the last time I tried to see an issue from God’s perspective rather than ask Him to see it from mine?
