Maybe you feel unworthy to petition God’s throne because of the mistakes you’ve made. Maybe you feel too dirty to call out to Him. Maybe you haven’t prayed today because you just got out of your bed of sin. Maybe you’ve found it increasingly hard to utter words to God, because your mouth was just used to cut/tear someone down.
Allow me to help you today. God already knows, and He still loves you. Whatever it is, repent. Whatever it is, turn away and don’t return to it. Whatever it is, let it go and go before God. It is in Hebrews 4:12-16 that shares some hope for you to try again because God’s grace and mercy, towards us, never runs dry.
12For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. 13Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to whom we are accountable. 14So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe. 15This High Priest (Jesus) of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. 16So 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.
Read verse 16 again because I need you to understand this … No matter what you’ve done or do, still go boldly (with a repentant heart) to the throne of God who is gracious, for there you’ll receive His mercy, and will find grace to help you when you need it most. Why? Because MERCY is when God doesn’t give us what we do deserve, and GRACE is when God gives us what we don’t deserve.
