Hebrews 4: 16
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace,
that we may obtain mercy,
and find grace to help in time of need.


God has given us permission to fearlessly, confidently, and boldly draw near to His throne of grace.

In fact, we are encouraged in Ephesians 3:12 to approach Him freely. (Ephesians 3: 12, “In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.”)

This means we can go into the presence of God anytime we feel like it. We can go 200 times a day if we want to go, with an “in and out” type of privilege. God doesn’t even tell us we have to knock on the door or wait for someone to say, “Come in.”

Suppose you have a friend who says, “You know what? You can come over anytime you want to come. You don’t even have to knock because you are welcome anytime, day or night. Just come on in!”

Now just think…God is saying that to you, unreservedly, which means you don’t have to be careful or hesitate or wonder if you’ve worn out your welcome. It means even if you make some mistakes or do things you shouldn’t do, you can repent of your sins, be cleansed in the blood of Jesus, and go boldly into His presence.

Prayer Starter: Lord, how wonderful it is to be able to enter Your presence anytime. I am so grateful for this privilege, and and thank You for encouraging me to come.
