If we really sit and reflect upon how powerful God is, it can actually become overwhelming. We are talking about someone who not only died for our salvation, but who loves us even in our sin. Each day we are saturated in His never ending grace and mercy in addition to Him preparing a place for us when we meet Him in Heaven. How am I not, at times, fully persuaded of God’s abilities? How can I even bring myself to worry that God won’t or can’t do something?
Recently, I purchased a set of pens and on the side they read, “Daughter of The King”. They were a bit of an impulse buy, however, it wasn’t until recently that I really reflected on what they meant. We are the daughters of not only a king, but of The King. God is all-powerful. In a split-second, He can simply breathe on a situation and turn it around in our favor.
Hebrews 4:16 tells us to “draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
The Bible has so many beautiful examples of women who had the type of bold and brave confidence that God wants from us. When you find yourself in a place of doubt, read the stories of Deborah, Sarah, Hannah, and Ruth. Pray to God for a renewed confidence. He will meet you at your lowest and give you what you need so that you can be blessed beyond anything that you ever asked for. Always remember, God loves us and has plans for our lives that are beyond anything that we could ever imagine. Don’t put God in a box, but truly trust that where He guides, He will provide.
