Hebrews 4:14-16; James 4:13-17

The writer of Hebrews lets us know plainly that through Jesus we can come freely, boldly and with confidence before the throne of God in prayer (Hebrews 4:14-16). How awesome is that?!? Yet, I don't always do this and I'm guessing you don't either?

So what is it that holds you back from taking full advantage of this incredible privilege? How can you draw on Hebrews 4:14-16 to help? Tami W.

I think the verse means that one who has been born again can call on God and talk to him as Mister Kroll mentioned a few days ago, "with intimacy and closeness" or words to that effect. Being able to cry out to or talk to God and his son Jesus is an awesome and fearful thing. He is our father, friend and sounding board when things are great and when things have headed south making for a bad day. At least I think so...

I think this means that we do not have to fear being thrown out of God's presence. Historically, if you walked into a king or queen's throne room without invitation,you could be thrown out or even killed. We do not have to fear for our lives. We have the freedom to come to God anytime.
Personally, it is a comfort to know that God is always available to me. I think what holds me back, at times, is forgetting who God is and who I am in comparison.
I am thankful that, as God's child, I can come to Him anytime, with anything.

I've missed your ministry Tami. I pray your territory will increase! Sometimes I forget that it is Jesus God sees when I pray, not me. I can only approach the Father because of Jesus' blood and His powerful Resurrection. Thank God we have a Savior who is always interceding. God loves me as His child because of His SON. I must rememebr that God is Holy and I must be reverent in attitude in His presence and always not just because of judgement but mostly because He IS! The Bible is true and God is real. He is all and is in all. Thank you for being faithful BTTB
