The Throne Room Perspective
I'll never forget my first trip up the aerial tramway in Palm Springs, California. Down in the valley, it was flat and hot as blazes, but up on the mountain, it was like a whole other world. There were pine trees, the air was cool, and one time, there was even snow!
But, the most amazing thing about the tramway was the ride up the mountain. In the beginning, I only saw the parking lot, but as we began to rise, I began to see the hotel where we stayed. Then, as we neared the top, I could see the whole land beneath me.
In the same way, when you come into the Lord's presence with praise and worship, it is like a journey you take from your realm into His. Now the Lord is always with you no matter where you go. If you have read any of our teachings, then you will know that we talk about having a secret place with Jesus.
At any time you want to, you can steal away behind a waterfall, and you can be free to be whoever you want to be. It is a place that is as intimate as the marriage bed. For someone who is called to be a prophet, you spend a good part of your training there as Jesus reveals Himself to you. However, as beautiful as the secret place is, it is not the place that you get business done.
No, that place is called the Throne Room of God. It is in the Throne Room that you receive the decree of the King that He wants you to carry out. It is in the Throne Room where you discover that you are seated with Christ in heavenly places. It is in the Throne Room that you discover that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.
What sort of things have you been facing in your life lately? Are you facing troubles in your finances, in your relationships, or with spiritual attack? As believers, when problems come our way, we tend to swing to one of two extremes. We either put all the responsibility on God, or we try to take on all the care ourselves instead of realizing that God works with man and that, as a believer, you are seated next to Him.
I know it is nice to have a glory hallelujah time and tarry in His presence for hours. That is your secret place with Jesus. Enjoy it. Cherish it. But then, come out of that refreshed, and head into the Throne Room of God through worship and praise.
Here is the main point I want to get across to you.
Luke 10:19 Behold, I give to you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the [dynamic] power of the enemy: and nothing will by any means hurt you.
We all know (or least I hope we do) that you have authority over all the power of the enemy.
So, make a list of all the problems that you have right now. Maybe you are late on your bond payment. Maybe you have a chronic illness. Maybe you are full of fear.
Whatever your problems are, I'm sure you've done a number of things to try and fix them. Maybe you tried working longer hours, or perhaps you went from revival to revival to get a touch of His power.
However, don't you realize that the key to receiving everything you need is in His Throne Room? Do you realize that as much authority you have over demons you have over finances? However, you need to visit the Throne Room to see that.
Psalms 16:11 You will make known to me the way of life: in your presence [there is] joy that fully satisfies; at your right hand [there are] pleasures that last forever.
When you take the time to come into His presence with praise and worship, and allow Him to lift you up in the Spirit to see from His vantage point, you will discover that our God can truly do anything! You will become aware of His power and the authority that He has given you.
As a prophet, in particular, this is your home. You need to abide in the Throne Room and speak forth the decrees that He gives you.
But, no matter what your calling is, the Lord has something to give you! Maybe it is a conviction to break the yoke of sin off your back. Maybe it is a direction to go in that will result in more finances. However, you are not going to receive what you want until you take that journey into His presence.
So in closing, take the time to worship the Lord this week. However, don't just go into His presence and quickly go out again. Take the time for Him to show you what He wants for you and for His Church. Then once you have seen from His viewpoint, you will have the power to make anything happen!
