God’s got an “open door policy!”

Open door policy
So grateful for God’s “open door policy!”
Seriously, I had a wonderful boss, who on the day he hired me, told me, “I’ve always maintained an ‘open door policy!’ If you need to visit with me about a concern or matter, just stop by and if I’m free we can talk about it. If I’m not immediately free my secretary has been instructed to schedule time together with you at my earliest available opportunity.”
Just gotta say… What a blessing! What a relief! And the best part… He wasn’t kidding! He practiced it!
Well during my time of “coffee with the Lord” today, my mind drifted to some persistent matters of concern – some big, some not so big, but troubling nevertheless! I was fretting about them…
And then I heard God’s sweet, persistent voice pierce through my fretting and anxiety… “Hey, LeRoy, remember I have an ‘open door policy!”
And He does! Listen to God’s word on the issue:
“Since we have a great high priest in the heavens, Jesus the Son of God… who can sympathize with us in our weaknesses and has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin – therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in time of need!” (From Hebrews 4:14-16)
“For through Him [Jesus Christ] we have access in on Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God!” (From Ephesians 2:18-19)
“In Christ Jesus our Lord we have boldness and access with confidence through our faith in Him” (From Ephesians 3:12)
And one more… “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (From Philippians 4:6-7)
Now if that isn’t an “open door policy” I don’t know what one is! Imagine it – an “open door policy” with the Almighty God through Christ Jesus! Going to “Cast all my care upon Him! He cares for me!” … and you! (From 1 Peter 5:7)
