"Confidence?"

“Confidence?”

In union with Christ and through our faith in Him we have the boldness to go into God’s presence with ALL confidence. Ephesians 3:12

Let us have confidence, then, and approach God’s throne, where there is grace. There we will receive mercy and find grace to help us just when we need it. Hebrews 4:16

Confidence: Firm belief; trust; reliance.

When an individual comes to Jesus Christ for the SALVATION of their soul, it entails MORE, MUCH MORE than just a FREE TICKET into Heaven, and an ESCAPE MECHANISM from spending an ETERNITY in Hell. It is a PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP with not ONLY Jesus, but the Almighty God. And in this RELATIONSHIP, we can obtain CONFIDENCE in the capabilities of the Almighty God, such as; KEEPING His PROMISES, and providing a FOREVER HOME for His children, making His presence KNOWN, and being our REFUGE in our darkest times.

However, many of His Children LACK CONFIDENCE in the ALMIGHTY GOD, and live a defeated life, because their relationship with God suffers from a LACK of CONFIDENCE, and their FAITH becomes WEAK and VULNERABLE to Satan’s attacks. And they try to FIGHT their OWN battles, ALONE without calling on God for His HELP. Their CONFIDENCE in the Heavenly Father is non-existent, at least that’s the impression they make. Some may even believe that as long as they have the PROMISE of HEAVEN, that’s ALL they NEED. WRONG!!! God’s offer of SALVATION includes a RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with Him. One in which you can be CONFIDENT in Him and His CAPABILITIES. HE IS ABLE, in ANY SITUATION!!! ALL you have to do is CALL ON HIM! If you TRULY BELONG to Him.

The Apostle Paul tells us that because of our UNION with Christ, and our FAITH in Him, we can have the BOLDNESS to go into God’s presence with ALL CONFIDENCE. In Hebrews 4:16, the writer tells us that we, God’s TRUE Children, SHOULD have CONFIDENCE, and approach God’s throne, where there is GRACE; receiving blessings WE DON’T DESERVE. And there we will RECEIVE MERCY; which is NOT receiving what WE DO DESERVE. Then we will find GRACE to HELP us JUST WHEN WE NEED IT. If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you cannot have a RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with Him, nor can you ENTER HIS PRESENCE with CONFIDENCE, because of your sinful lifestyle. You’re headed for an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS and NO WAY of ESCAPE. In order to have a RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with God, you MUST TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. You MUST CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. Then you MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. You MUST ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and when you have done this, you may have a RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with the ALMIGHTY GOD, and can enter His presence with BOLDNESS and CONFIDENCE in Him. Do ALL of the ABOVE NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!

Mood: hopeful
