Daily devotional: Approach God's throne boldly

Scripture
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.
Hebrews 4:16 NLT

Observation
Jesus is our great High Priest (v.14). He understands our weaknesses and struggles, because He was tested in the same way we are (v.15). Because of what God has done for us through Jesus, we can boldly come before the throne of God in prayer. How awesome that He gives us mercy in abundance, and He gives us the grace we need, especially when we need it most!

Application
Come boldly to God's throne and accept the grace He freely offers me!

Prayer
Heavenly Father, Your plan and Your ways are so awesome. Thank you for sending Jesus to take the penalty for my sins. Thank you, Jesus, for being the perfect leader for us. Help me to better understand the mystery of how suffering helps build us into better leaders. I pray now that Your lavish grace would be greatly evident to me today. Please multiply the time You have entrusted to me and help me to be diligent and closely in sync with Your will in all things. I love you!
