Truth for Today
Hebrews 10:15 22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.
I have watched many court television programs. In each case the ‘judge’ doesn’t allow to the attorney’s to approach the bench unless invited. If the judge says, “No”, then the attorney’s can’t even get near the bench. When an attorney is making a case before the Supreme Court he or she has to “STAY” at a podium and is not permitted in any case to approach the judges. Not so with God!
Did you know that you have a precious and an awesome privilege of drawing near to God each and every day of your life? You do! The writer of Hebrews tells us to “draw near (God) with a true heart in full assurance of faith”. Scripture encourages us to draw near to God and the promise is that HE will draw near to us. So let’s listen to the Father and draw near to Him.
Draw near in full assurance knowing that He is filled with love, mercy and grace for all who draw near.
Draw near in full dependence. Near God is not a place of independence and pride but a place of full reliance upon HIM who loves us.
Draw near in full disclosure. There is nothing hidden from HIM. He knows the tiniest corner of our heart.
Draw near in full HOPE…that He will always do right with us and by us.
Have you drawn near to God?
Father, in Your presence I find hope and I praise Your name for You are God and You love me so much. Fill me with Your mercy and cover me by Your GRACE…In Jesus Name…AMEN!!!
