Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need – Hebrews 4:16
I once spoke to a lady who told me that she didn’t pray to God about her trials because he was too busy for her minor issues in comparison to all the big issues in the world. My heart ached for her at the lie that she had bought into; God wasn’t interested enough in her to want to care for her. If there is something we can be confident of, it is that God loves us so much and wants what is best for us. He sent His one and only Son for us that we would be reconciled to him and have eternal life with him. He is interested in all the details of our life. And more so, He wants us to boldly go to him with whatever we need.
God, the Almighty who spoke the world into being, is matchless in His power, mercy and grace, and He wants to pour it out on us. He wants us to boldly step up to His throne knowing that He is waiting with open arms. He will not rebuke us for approaching him but embrace us. He will not be angered when we ask him for what we need, but will meet our needs in His own way and in his own time. And his ways and timing are perfect. God wants us to be confident that the One that created us wants to hear from us. His ears are postured towards you and his heart is for you. Whatever you may need today, be confident that God is waiting with open arms and ears to hear your request. His love will meet you are you draw near to him and he peace will surround you.
Lord, thank you for inviting me to draw near to you and share my heart with you. Thank you that even though you know what I need, you listen with love to my prayers and petitions and meet my needs in ways that only you can. Please help me to remember that your arms are always open to me and that you want to pour out your mercy and grace to me. In Jesus’ name, amen.
