There was a black patch on the envelop with instructions not to scratch the patch. But I did exactly that . I rubbed the black inky part and in doing so I smudged the PIN number which I could barely read.
Now it turned into a intriguing card game somewhat like online Solitaire. I had a choice of numbers . After punching in 3 combinations, the ATM locked me out, saying my transaction was denied.. I had to wait 24 hours for another attempt. Machines do that to prevent hacking and use of stolen cards.
24 hours ended this evening , so I went to back for another attempt. I punched in a number and lo and behold , it worked . The number I guessed was correct. As I retrieved my cash, I wiped my brow.
Lesson learnt...You cannot play casino games with an ATM machine.Approach it the correct PIN number otherwise get locked out.
I must have a PIN to access God and this PIN is no secret. He is Jesus Christ .I have free access to God the Father at any time of the day or night through Jesus.He unlocked the gates the heaven for me when I invited Him into my heart.
People are trying to enter God' s presence with their own smudged PIN codes. They are trying various combinations. Jesus said ,"I am the door, no one can come to the Father but through me."
Jesus said," I am the way , the truth and the life, no man cometh unto the Father but by me." John 14;6 KJV (BIBLE)
"For through him (Jesus Christ) we have access by the One Spirit unto the Father." Ephesians 2;18 KJV (BIBLE)
