BE BOLD


BE BOLD

Hebrews 4:15-16 (NKJV) For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Because Jesus went to the cross and died for you and me, we have been made the righteousness of God in Him (1 Corinthians 5:21).  Knowing this fact, and living like it is real, will change your life and your prayer life!

Many people enter into prayer with a condemnation attitude, always thinking, “Poor me.”  I don’t know about you, but if I told my kids they can have the pie in the refrigerator, and they keep coming back to me and begging me for it, I think I would go to the refrigerator and eat it myself!  (Well, you know I would not do that, but you see what I mean.)

Jesus Christ has come to the earth, brought forth all of these wonderful promises that we read in the Word, and we still beg God for them.  We think that by begging we can get God to change, but His Word declares that He changes not. 

God is a God of faith, and for us to receive anything that He has promised us from His Word, we need to receive it by faith.  In Hebrews 4:16, God tells us to “come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain…”  Notice it did not say that we could not obtain.  God wants us to be bold as a lion when it comes to believing His Word, not arrogant or big-headed, but bold!

So today, do not be timid.  Find out what His Word declares, and then believe Him for it.  Remember, God is not holding any good thing back from us; it is the enemy.  There is nothing that makes the Father happier than seeing His children receiving what rightfully belongs to them!

Confession:  Today, I am believing my Heavenly Father for ________________.  According to His Word, I come boldly into the throne room of grace to obtain what Jesus has purchased for me!
