Hebrews 4:16 NLT
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.
Thank you, Father God for your mercy and grace. For your unmerited favor in our lives. For your unconditional love.
My dog is a faithful companion. She has been with me for over fifteen years. She loves me unconditionally. When I leave her too long or forget to feed her on time it does not change her love for me. Even when I have to go away for days and leave her with someone else, she does not waver in her love for me. I am never a disappointment to her.
We tend to watch what we do and say because we do not want to disappoint God. Because of His grace, we cannot disappoint Him. He no longer sees our transgressions. He views us through His son, Jesus.
We try our best to be who we Want Him to see us as. And because we are born again the things of our past no longer become a desire for us to do. If we fall to temptation it does not remove His love or grace from us.
Daily, Holy Spirit is helping us become more and more Christ like in our thoughts, our words, and our actions. Helping us to put temptation out and stay focused on Him.
As we grow in Christ our desires for the old ways lessen as we become more like Him in our thoughts and actions.
Help me to grow closer to You Lord. Mold me into the example of Jesus you have for me to become. Help me stay focused on you in all I do. Thank You for never seeing me as a disappointment to you. In Jesus name. Amen.
