Bible Verse:‭‭ Romans‬ ‭8:15-16‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.” For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children.”

Hebrews‬ ‭4:16‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“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.”

Thought:

Knowing who we are in Christ, endues an increasing measure of confidence in our approach to the Throne of Grace. Often when we purpose to approach God with our requests, the enemy sows seeds of doubt. “Who are you to ask God for that?”, “do you think God will hear you, look at what you’ve done in the past?”. Dear friend, don’t let this voice shout louder than God’s. Allow your heart to hear Romans 8v1 , beautifully rendered in the Passion Translation, “So now the case is closed. There remains no accusing voice of condemnation against those who are joined in life-union with Jesus, the Anointed One. For the “law” of the Spirit of life flowing through the anointing of Jesus has liberated us from the “law” of sin and death” . We have been set free, we have been adopted as Children of the Most High. When we are joined with Him there is absolutely nothing that can keep us at a distance from Him, we have this incredible privilege and invitation, to confidently approach the Throne of Grace, bringing all our hurts and hangups, all our hopes and expectations. In the words of an old song “there’s no guilt or fear as I draw near to the Saviour and Creator of the world, there is Joy and peace as I release my worship to You oh Lord”. We stand confidently before the Throne of heaven, with the assertion “ I am a Child of God”

Prayer and Reflection:

As you listen to the track linked below, allow God’s Voice to strengthen your heart in the knowledge that “there remains no accusing voice of condemnation”

Boldly I Approach
