Confidence in Approaching God - Hebrews 4:16

Hebrews 4:16 -- "Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need."

God does not want us to live in fear -- to be afraid of the world or of Him. God wants respect and for you to chose to love Him. God is there for you no matter what you do or think because He loves you. God loves you unconditionally, despite yourself, your attitude or your mistakes.

God wants us to feel confident in coming to Him with anything. No matter how big and impossible or how small and insignificant it seems to you, God desires a relationship with you, a confident, lasting, strong relationship.

He wants to know us, but more importantly, He wants us to want Him to know us. When you can confidently come to God about anything you can receive His mercy and grace, not only when you ask it, but through a relationship with Him, He will also give you His resources when you need them the most.

God can always work in and through us to better situations. However, when we confidently open our hearts to Him and believe He can and does work miracles, we release all of our limitations of His magnificence allowing Him to work in a way we could not have known before.
