In Hebrews 4:16 we read, “So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.”
Want to know the secret to the boldness in this verse?! Relationship!! Picture this, you are sitting on a park bench watching your kiddos play. They begin playing with other children and they play hard. They all work up a sweat and they’re all thirsty. The whole group may look over your way. They may even begin working their way toward you. But guess who runs to you without even questioning permission? YOUR kids. They KNOW you. They’ve spent a LOT of time with you. They know that you love them and take care of them. They also have learned that you have what they need and that you would never turn them away when they come to you. And don’t you love it when your children come to you for help?!!
That’s what God longs for with us! Relationship!! The more time we spend with God, the more we will learn that He longs for us to come to Him with everything on our heart. Right away! Boldly! That’s a big deal. He is the King of kings. He’s on a throne! And we are the King’s kids. He wants us to know that we can come to Him any time with any need and His promise is clear. We will receive mercy and find grace to help us when we need it most. Come boldly today! Our gracious God is waiting for you.
