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.
When you need God's mercy, go boldly to His throne. Don't go weakly, telling Him how you don't measure up. Go with confidence, knowing you're forgiven, knowing He's for you. Yes, you may have blown it, but He doesn't listen when you keep telling Him everything you've done wrong. The moment you asked God to forgive you, He forgave you. God listens to the language of faith.
The enemy would love for you to live feeling condemned. He'll remind you of all the times you haven't measured up, even for small things. There's always some reason to feel bad about what you've done. If you give in to those lies, you'll go through life trying to pay God back for your mistakes. God's mercy has covered everything you've done wrong. All your sins--past, present, and future--have been taken care of by Jesus on the cross. Rest in the fact that the spotless, sinless blood of the Lamb of God has paid the price in full. Receive God's mercy.
