“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
When there is opposition or oppression in a certain area of your life, the last thing you have is confidence. But in the throne of grace you can have full confidence that your case will be heard.
,Today we are on our third day of worship.
On day one we entered into His courts with thanksgiving.
On Day 2, we realized that we have audience before a God who is for us.
Today we meditate on this fact: we can walk in full confidence that in this court process we will receive grace and find help in our time of need.
I have seen people walk into a court room. The last trait in their character is confidence. If anything their confidence is in the money they have paid an attorney to represent them. Still, in an earthly court, the law is in the limited interpretation of human beings. Our confidence is in who represents us:
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” Revelations 12:11
Who represents us?
-the blood of the Lamb
-the word of our testimony
-the fact that we love HIM above all things
THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB:
“to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.” Hebrews 12:24 WOW! Jesus is our counsel, our mediator, isn’t that a reason enough to be CONFIDENT? No attorney on earth can top that!
THE WORD OF OUR TESTIMONY:
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 The story written about you speaks on your behalf.
WE LOVE HIM ABOVE ALL THINGS:
Do you remember the promise Jesus made about those that Love the Him? “ You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it. If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—” John 14:14-16
Dear friends “…This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.”
TODAY, NO MATTER WHAT YOUR SITUATION, stand in confidence that you have a righteous judge and three powerful witnesses speaking on your behalf.
