We are to come BOLDLY to the throne of grace. But instead of coming boldly, we come barely.
I don’t know why, but too often we allow our past mistakes; our sins, to affect our confidence in coming to God. So much so that some of us opt out of praying or seeking God. We ask ourselves, “why would God use someone like me?” or “Why would God give me grace?”
God understands our need for Grace!
He already knows we are sinners, there is nothing that catches Him by surprise. Needing grace and mercy means that we are far from perfect but even in despite of that, God wants us to come and not come lightly, but boldly!
God doesn’t hold our past mistakes over our head, He never intended for us to live in fear, guilt or shame. All those kind of feelings don’t come from God, the enemy wants to trip us up by lying to us and making us feel less than God sees us.
It doesn’t matter how big the sin is. God’s mercy is bigger! His Throne is big enough to encompass everything and everyone.
(Hebrews 4:16) “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”
Don’t let anyone or anything make you feel so bad that you back away from receiving God’s promises. Jesus paid the ultimate price so that we can walk freely and BOLDLY to the Throne!
Hold your head up high, my friend, and whatever you find yourself needing today…ask boldly and believe that God’s grace and mercy is yours today!
