“This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. 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 4:15-16 NLT
Men may reject you, but God will never reject you. Even when you disobey Him and hurt Him, He still tells you, “You can come back!” He will receive you, not reject you, when you humbly confess to Him.
The Bible says, “Even if my father and mother abandon me, the Lord will hold me close . . . My enemies are waiting for me . . . Yet I am confident I will see the Lord’s goodness while I am here in the land of the living” (Psalm 27:10-11, 13 NLT).
Our mistakes often seem magnified, and we can be overwhelmed with guilt. But there is good news! God is the God of second chances for us, too. Why? Because He is a good and gracious Father.
Now, because God is always good and gracious, we can be bold and confident when we pray. We can come and say, “God, you know I blew it—that’s who I am. But you are a good Father—that’s who you are. And it’s who you are that matters.”
His arms are wide open to receive you as you humbly come back to Him.
