Topic: Take It What Grace Has Provided [TREM Devotional 25 March 2019]
“Let us, therefore, come (boldly) to the throne of grace, that we may (obtain) mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16 (NKJV)
The text above is a very familiar one, and even though we readily quote it, sometimes we get too familiar with the scripture that we miss the import of the words. Let me point out two words to you: “boldly” and “obtain.” God does not want you to approach Him timidly. He wants you to approach Him boldly, knowing that there is absolutely nothing He cannot do. God wants you to approach Him knowing that He is the possessor of heaven and earth. You should approach God with the understanding that He is God all by Himself and He is for you. It is only when you are equipped with this knowledge that you are empowered to obtain or take what you need, that has already been provided. God expects you to approach Him in full confidence and assurance that He is for you, and because of that, you cannot be denied.
Child of God, its high time you stopped begging, managing and getting by with life. When you know who your God is, it gives you a holy audacity. The Bible says, “…the people who know their God shall be strong…” (Daniel 8:32 NKJV). The woman with the issue of blood was a woman who embodied this scripture. She defied all the odds that were stacked against her and approached Jesus, the personification of Grace, and she took her healing (Luke 8:41-48).
Beloved, you must rise up and take what Grace has provided. Grace has provided your healing, your deliverance, your finances, your job and your business success. It has all been provided, so take it! The woman with the issue of blood refused to keep living with that illness when her deliverance was already available. Mediocrity is not permitted in your life. And crawling is not allowed. It is God’s will for you to be the best. You are the preferred one because that is what He has perfected in eternity concerning you.
