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

The NIV says:
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.

WOW! Just think! We are being told to approach God with our very thoughts, needs, concerns BOLDLY! With CONFIDENCE! I always thought we needed to come to God meekly, humbled, and there must be a time and place for that as well as those words are in the Bible too. I think also that “meek & humble” doesn’t mean quiet & sheepish. But when we are really seeking God to help, solve, heal, forgive…. Don’t we want to come BOLDLY? With confidence that HE is hearing & that HE loves us & has the best possible plan for us?
So today, bring your petitions before Him that created the world, that gave us each breath! Lay them at His feet with bold confidence. Know that if you do not receive that answer that you request, He has not forsaken you. He has a plan!

I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.

Psalm 145:18-19. The LORD is near to all who call on him,
to all who call on him in truth. 19 He fulfills the desire of those who fear him;
he also hears their cry and saves them.

13 Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
