“ 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.” – Hebrews 4:16
“But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” – 2Corinthians 12:9
Today, there is access to the throne of God for His people.
I have access to grace.
I have access to mercy.
I have access to the Spirit of God who dwells in me.
Today, I will not believe that I have nowhere to turn. I will not choose to seek what I need from any other source, for I have been given access to the throne of God by the blood of His Son. I will not tiptoe in, wondering if He will grant me what I need. I will run there with confidence and receive what He offers. Grace. Mercy. Help.
I am not strong. Any inner fortitude, any stubborn refusal to quit within me is utter weakness. I have no boot straps to pull myself up with and I have no wits about me with which to make it through this life. I will boast of, not attempt to hide, these truths, for my weakness invites the power of God. My weakness shows off the sufficiency of His grace.
So today I will not pretend to be strong, but will live and move and have my being in the grace of God.
