Daily Devotion

Bold With God!

SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 3:12

“In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.


Totally opposite to how to approach God in the Old Testament, i.e., via the Temple/Tabernacle with its myriad of prescribed liturgies and protocols, Paul wants Christians at Ephesus to approach God’s throne, via prayer, boldly, not meekly, because of Christ’s redeeming and atoning work on the Cross. The author of the Book of Hebrews and John the Apostle also encouraged this new found boldness:

Hebrews 4:16 Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

Hebrews 10:19 Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus…”

1John 5:14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.


When I hear that reforming sinners and rookie saints like us can boldly approach the infinitely holy Omni-God without condemnation or precondition, I can joyfully intone, “Who said what to who now?” Indeed, our loving Heavenly Father INSISTS that we come to him at any time, in anyway, and from any place. Whenever we do he gladly grants us an audience and smiles favorably upon our requests. All praise to our sinless Savior for making all of this possible. Now let’s be like Nike and just do it!

PRAYER: Heavenly Father,

With great confidence it is our joy to come boldly to you. Thank you Jesus, Amen!
