Courage to enter his presence

Haman conspired to kill all Jewish people in all the 127 provinces of the Empire. Emperor Ahasuerus had indeed approved that wicked plan. (Esther 3)
Emperor’s presence: When Mordecai came to know about it, he urged Esther to go to the King to annul the order. Esther said: “All the king’s servants and the people of the king’s provinces know that if any man or woman goes to the king inside the inner court without being called, there is but one law—to be put to death, except the one to whom the king holds out the golden sceptre so that he may live. But as for me, I have not been called to come into the king these thirty days.” Even a prominent and beautiful Esther cannot enter the presence of an emperor without his permission.
God’s holy presence: In contrast King David sings with joy: “Blessed is the one you choose and bring near, to dwell in your courts.” (Psalms 65:4) David’s desire was to worship, see the beauty of the Lord in His presence. (Psalms 27:4) In His presence is the fullness of joy. (Psalms 16:11)
Choose: It is God who has chosen His people as His children. He first loved us, sent his Son to die for the ungodly, rebellious, weak sinners who were his enemies. (I John 4:19; Romans 5:6-10) Though Esther was chosen by Ahasuerus, she could not enter his presence all the time. God has bestowed upon His children to have the privilege of access all times.
Bring near: His children are brought near Him. God chose disciples to be with Him. That is the desire of the Lord those disciples be in intimate fellowship with Him. (Mark 3:14)
Dwell: God has chosen His people to dwell in His courts. The Tabernacle of God is among men, he dwells among them. (Revelation 21:3) It is amazing to know that God chooses to dwell among His people. Heaven, His dwelling place is filled with saints of God.
Do I cherish and nourish the Priority Access I have to the Lord?
