How Can You Have Confidence in a Time of Need?
Moving on to actually freaking stage two!
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.
Freaky Question From Yesterday
How does one find confidence in the time of need? Isn't that an oxymoron?
I think we need to embrace that what we are living is a faith, not a philosophy, or a self help method, but a faith.
The very act of faith requires that we do things we believe to be true and not always what we feel. We are moving with our born again spirit not our mind.
In Christianity, God’s Word is the truth we act on.
The confidence then is not in yourself, but in the Word that calls you to approach with confidence. It is very likely your need might even have caused you to lose your confidence.
In an age when we put confidence in self help books, talking it out with friends, or even “figuring things out," we should ponder this verse.
When you are in need -big or small, practice this verse that gives you hope to come to the lover of your soul. No one and nothing else is worthy.
