God, full of mercy & grace, gives us the confidence to approach him boldly

May God give us all the beautiful and innocent part of self-confidence!

I love Lucy’s self-confidence.  Reading from the book of Hebrews this morning, I pondered this thought:  God wants people to know they can approach his throne of grace with confidence. 

Hebrews 4:14-16

14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. 16 Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. [New International Version]

As Eugene Peterson puts it:  We can walk right up to Him and get what he’s ready to give.

God loves having us around… Move toward him today.  He is full of mercy and grace…
