Lady V’s Devotional Episode
Hebrews 4:14-16 (NLT) says:
So 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. This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. 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.
As believers in Jesus, we face daily challenges and testing that come like clockwork. We want life to be a cakewalk, but instead, it’s filled with temptations that reveal our weak areas.
But our weaknesses don’t define who we are in Christ, because Jesus has given us a new identity in Him. Jesus made us righteous when we chose to have faith in Him for our righteousness.
So, when we mess up and miss the mark, we can go to the throne of grace in prayer to receive mercy. The grace of God awaits our need to make a withdrawal from heaven.
So much so, God expects us to come to HIM when we need help.
He has provided Grace for a Lifetime!
It is a privilege to approach the throne of grace to receive favor with confidence and without fear. Our failures should no longer separate us from God, but draw us closer to HIM. That’s SAVING grace!
And, when you believe that God loves you, you know that everything that concerns you—CONCERNS HIM. So, when you struggle with sin, you no longer have to fight against it alone. You now have a Savior living within your heart who is close and merciful.
Jesus is able to sympathize with what tempts us and our weaknesses. He too understands how it feels to be human. Only—Jesus never sinned!
Beloved, don’t get caught up on your failures—get caught up to the throne of grace in HIS presence. God loves you! You can receive mercy and grace at the right moment.
Jesus made it possible to receive GRACE FOR A LIFETIME.
We come to YOU in the Name of Jesus with thanksgiving in our hearts. Father God, we thank YOU for YOUR goodness in our lives. We thank YOU that we can always depend on YOU.
Father God, I lift up every believer in Christ, that our dependency will always be upon YOU. And, I pray that every heart of the believer is eagerly awaiting the return of our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS!
Father God, as we wait for Jesus, YOU know that we face temptations and trials, which reveal where we are weak. Help us to come to you immediately in prayer for help.
Holy Spirit, remind us that there is mercy and grace waiting at the throne of grace for us to lean on and rely on for help in the time we need it.
Thank you, Father God, that YOUR WORD tells us that as people sinned more and more, YOUR wonderful grace became more abundant—Lord God, help us to desire more to do what is pleasing unto YOU, and deny our flesh of those things that are not.
And, LORD, YOUR WORD tells us that we can do everything through Christ, who gives us strength. YOU O’LORD are our strength.
Help us to draw our strength from YOU in times of weakness, in Jesus’ GREAT name. Amen, Amen, Amen.
Grace and Peace to you all! And remember that JESUS IS LORD!!!
