With confidence // 09-03-18

“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 ‭NIV

When our eyes are down it can often mean we feel embarrassed, ashamed or guilty, afraid to meet the eyes of anyone who might see us as we really are. And yet God, who knows everything about us, the good, the bad and the ugly, says ‘Look up! Don’t avoid my gaze you need to see that there is no condemnation in my eyes. If you look my way you will find mercy and grace, no matter how bad you think you are, you will find love, forgiveness and freedom from guilt and shame because I dealt with your sin, I died for you, so no need to fear, come boldly and confidently to me.’ No wonder His grace has been called ‘Amazing’ Thank you Jesus 🙄
