Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace (the throne of God’s unmerited favor to us sinners), that way may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need [appropriate help and well-times help; coming just when we need it].
We see from this Scripture the attitude we should live with. Fearless! Confidence! Bold! We cannot ask fearfully and expect to receive. We come in that way because we know with assurance that God is faithful, He is good, and He wants to meet our needs. We don’t need to act as if God is a miser whose arm we must twist to convince Him to help us. He is waiting to hear your cry! Many of the wrong attitudes toward women over the centuries have either changed or they are in the process of being changed. We are sorry for the women who lived in the past and did not know the freedom we enjoy today. We still have a way to go, but as the saying goes, “We’ve come a long way, baby!” It is a new day. There are no hindrances. The door is wide open for you to realize your dreams. Walk confidently into your future and never look back! You go, girl!
Lord, I want to live fearlessly and confidently, knowing that You are faithful and will always meet my needs. Thank You for open doors and a bright tomorrow. Amen
