Topic: Boldly Approach the Throne
Key Verse: Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace (the throne of God’s unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need [appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we need it].(Hebrews 4:16)
Message: God wants us to get in the habit of running to Him for grace (supernatural inner strength). He wants us to rely solely on Him. Daily Devotional by Joyce Meyer January 1, 2018
But the enemy tries to lie to us, telling us that we’re not good enough to be in God’s presence. Satan tries to convince us that we’ve made too many mistakes for God to want to have anything to do with us.
But that’s not what God’s Word says. His Word says that as His redeemed and forgiven children, we can boldly approach His throne. You need to receive this truth today and make the choice to live by it.
Instead of saying, “I don’t feel like God loves me,” “I don’t feel like I’m forgiven” or “I don’t feel like I have a future,” say, “God loves me, and nothing can separate me from His love. He has forgiven me and I can approach Him right now with confidence that He accepts me.”
Every time you feel unworthy, remember what the Word of God says, and then boldly go to your heavenly Father. He is waiting eagerly to receive you.
Prayer: [Daily Devotional by Joyce Meyer January 1, 2018] God, I boldly come to You because Your Word says that I am forgiven and that I can always come to You. Thank You for Your forgiveness for my failures and Your grace that helps me in every time of need.
