You Are Worth It!
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.
One thing that the accuser has been using against the body of Christ until this present moment is the power of guilt. That sense of unworthiness before a Holy God. Don’t get it wrong, God has not saved us so that we can return to our sins, however, He has not also saved us so we can run away from Him at every moment of weakness.
Imagine a person who has an ailment and keeps running from the physician to treat him or refuses to go to the hospital, you don’t need to be told the repercussion of such an act. It is of the same effect when we ‘run away’ from the very person who can make us whole again. T
The passages above given an even greater audacity into His presence. He tells us to come boldly…again I say, humility, as prescribed by the Word of God, is not timidity!
You understand that even if you were the only one around here, Christ would still come and die for you. The understanding of His love for you will make you lay hold on the mercy He has for you. Do not let the enemy make you feel unworthy of His presence; it’s there we get strength.
Knowing that Christ fully understands our weaknesses and has experienced our pain, we can pray.
When we come to God asking for mercy, grace, help, or forgiveness, we can be confident (Hebrews 3:6) and assured. Nobody understands our pain better than Jesus, which is why only Jesus can be our High Priest and the substitute for our payment of sin (Hebrews 2:18).
If you cannot trust God in your moment of weakness to strengthen you, how then do you even exercise faith for bigger things in Christ?
