Devotion for the Week...

A couple of years ago, I was in a quilt shop and saw another pattern designer. I had never met him before, but we had interacted a couple of times on IG and I wanted to introduce myself, but hesitated. All kinds of thoughts go through my head in moments like that. Things like ‘I don’t want to bother him’ or ‘he won’t know who I am’ or ‘what would I even say?’ I’m not the boldest of people, that’s for sure!
I think that might be why I like Hebrews 4:16, which says, “So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.” I particularly love that the writer said we should come to God boldly. I mean, if anyone were going to intimidate me and make me feel anything but bold, it would be the Creator of heaven and earth! Who am I to even think about approaching Him?  
We can approach God boldly, confident that He wants us to come |
And yet…He invites us. He opened up the way so we could come to Him. He wants us to have that kind of relationship with Him, where we bring all of our worries and concerns to Him and ask for help. We don’t ever need to hesitate, worrying that we’re bothering Him or that He isn’t interested. Instead, we can approach Him boldly, confident that He wants us to come.


  1. Right on! Had a discussion with my minister once about only praying for "important" issues not petty concerns. I maintained that if something is important to me then God wants me to share it with Him.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message. I love hearing from you.
