Read: Hebrews 4:14-16
Because Jesus gets it, he understands everything about what you are experiencing, we can approach confidently.
The writer of Hebrews says we should, “come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help when we need it most.”
Our asking should be characterized by confident boldness. Have you ever been in a crowd and there is that person who boldly moves through the crowd to get to the front? Not rudely, but boldly, confidently approaching the one who can help? It’s annoying. I want to say, “wait your turn” even when there isn’t a “turn” system. And then I am jealous because the one who approached boldy received. I am still waiting to be noticed.
How does your approach to God need to change? We have every reason to boldly approach our God. We have a High Priest, Jesus, who runs intercession for us. He speaks on our behalf. He paid the price. We are already in line. It is our turn.
So speak up. Be bold. Approach with confidence.
