For a long time, psalm 18 has been one of my favorites (and attributed to David). This time as I read it, I noticed the writer's confidence in going to God.
1 I love you, O Lord, my strength.
2 The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer,
my God, my rock in whom I take refuge,
my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
3 I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised,
so I shall be saved from my enemies.
Psalm 18: 1-3 RSV
What makes you confident in God, Dear Reader? Is it faith that He only wants the very best for you? Perhaps trust that He will do what He has promised? Does it come over time spent in an intimate relationship with Him?
The writer of Hebrews understood the privilege and blessing of confidence:
Let us have confidence, then, and approach God's throne, where there is grace. There we will receive mercy and find grace to help us just when we need it.
Hebrews 4:16 GNT
Do you confidently approach the throne of grace, Dear Reader? Are there answered prayers that give your boldness a boost? Dare we imagine what we could accomplish if we sought God with confidence?
