And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground. Exodus 3:5
In every kingdom, there are protocols for approaching and accessing the king. The kingdom of God is no exception. God has His protocols. The key to maximizing your time with Him is understanding these protocols and deploying them.
What are these kingdom protocols? Some of them are as follows:
‘Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name’ (Psalm 100:4). You can’t enter God’s gates with grumbling and complaining. You can only do so with thanksgiving.
‘Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?’ Isaiah 53:1.If you want to see the hand of God, the protocol of His power is faith.
‘Behold, the LORD’S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear'(Isaiah 59:1-2). Sin is a show stopper with God. It is a powerful insulator from the power of His presence.
Those are just three of the many protocols of the kingdom of God. As you walk with Him, He will reveal more to you. Engage these protocols if you want to derive maximum benefits from your interactions with the King.
UNDERSTAND THIS: You will find the best of the Holy Spirit by following divine protocols.
