Organizing the Inside – Day 82 Come Boldly

So let us keep on coming boldly to the throne of grace, so that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.  ~Hebrews 4:16

God is waiting for your request.
I can remember as a child every day when my Dad would come home from work He’d always bring my kid sister and me a treat. We’d run to the door and jump in his arms and he would wait for our request. I’d say, “Hi Daddy!” then he’d say, “Hi Pendy!” Then my sister would say, “Hi Daddy!” and he’d say, “Hi Leet!” Then he would wait for the big question. “Did you bring me something?” “Did you bring me something?” Nothing we were doing when my Dad arrived home was more important than running, with boldness and great anticipation to get hugs, kisses and a treat. We never hesitated; we knew he had something especially for us. We knew it was something good and we were so excited, because we knew it belonged to us…but he waited every time for us to ask for it first.

As God’s children He wants us to ask Him for whatever we want.
The scriptures tell us to come boldly, not because we’ve somehow managed to earn the right to approach a Holy God in this manner, but because of His grace.  He gave us His favor, free and of charge and made us His dear children. I’m sure my Dad was happy when he came home, knowing that he would be welcomed with big hugs and kisses and the expectation of two very excited little girls, who knew without a doubt that he had something wonderful to give. God wants us to run to Him with great expectation and faith that He is there to help and give us whatever we have need of.

The power of God’s grace is resting on the inside of us.
God knew before the foundation of the earth all that we’d be faced with in this life.  Yet, before we were born He called us overcomers. He’d already arranged for us to have all we needed to sustain us in difficult times, and to have full and complete VICTORY.  Frustration, complications and despair are available in abundance; but so is the wonderful, powerful grace of God, and it belongs to each of us who have been redeemed from sin.
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith. ~ 1 John 5:4 also read  1 John 4:4.
