Ephesians 3:11-12. ” According to the eternal purpose which He purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord: In Whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of Him. ”
God has always had a plan, a purpose. Nothing, no one, will stand in His way. What may seem like a setback to us now is only a hiccup to God. His ways, His thoughts, are so much higher than ours. They are higher, even, then other so-called faiths that threaten us, or government systems that try to shut down the Word of God.
Because of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, Who gave us access to God, we can have boldness and confidence to approach Him as beloved children.
Boldness, not arrogance. Not self-righteousness. Not self-confidence. Not self-anything. If we would only get SELF out of the way, what a difference it would make in our personal lives, in our churches, in our nation.
We can have confidence that God wants to hear us, wants to give us what we need and even what we want.
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.”
