Because of Christ both Jew and Gentile now enjoy equal access to the Father in one Spirit. (Mirror Bible)
Does God have a pecking order?
Are there times in your life when you feel left out? Whether it is on your job and the boss talks to everybody but not necessarily to you. It may be in your church, and the pastor or ministry leaders do not seem to respond to you. Do you wonder if you are important enough? Did you come to a conclusion? Where you able to identify the reason it “seems” you are being ignored? Did you decide, the church, company or group has a pecking order, and you are on the bottom. That might be the case. Or you may be dealing with some insecurities and/or some other issues that a little time on “God’s comfy couch” can solve. Either way, isn’t it good to know, with the Lord your God, you have equal access?
Galatians 3:26-29 You have all become true children of God by the faith of Jesus the Anointed One! 27 It was faith that immersed you into Jesus, the Anointed One, and now you are covered and clothed with his anointing. 28 And we no longer see each other in our former state—Jew or non-Jew, rich or poor, male or female—because we’re all one through our union with Jesus Christ with no distinction between us. 29 And since you’ve been united to Jesus the Messiah, you are now Abraham’s “child” and inherit all the promises of the kingdom realm! (The Passion Translation)
Your understanding of who you are and Whose you are is important in battle. You have to know God hears you and is with you. You are not expendable. He will not leave you to be defeated by the enemy because He is saving someone else more important than you. We are all precious to Him. There is no pecking order. He does not talk to some and not to you. He does not want to be friends with some and not be your friend. There is no waiting for your turn. He is everywhere at the same time. This truth is particularly important when you are in an environment, be it the local church or anywhere believers congregate, where it seems like one person’s feelings carry more weight. To the Father, though we may have different jobs and callings in the kingdom; we are all the same, and that is a blessing.
Please agree with me as I pray:
Father, I thank You for accepting me. I don’t have to stand in a line behind someone else. I am valuable to You and You are available to me. Though I know you are everywhere and all knowing. I repent for treating You as if You were human. You don’t put me on hold because someone more important is trying to reach You. Thank You for truly loving me the same as everyone else. I am so grateful there is no weighted class system in heaven. I can come to You, boldly. I can hear from You and I thank You for that. I’m not a second-class citizen when it comes to my communication with You. I thank You for the peace You give me when I feel alone. I give You glory and I give You honor. Knowing how You feel about me and how You treat me elevates my view of me…
