Note: this post is the first weekly reflection for the Hi-C (youth) of our church. This is a new initiative for 2019 – every Wednesday, a weekly reflection will be sent out to the Hi-C to help them during the week in their spiritual journeys. May God bless this new adventure!
Boldness and Confidence
This was in accordance with the eternal purpose that he has carried out in Christ Jesus our Lord, in whom we have access to God in boldness and confidence through faith in him.
Does it seem like you have to prove yourself over and over again? Do you have this nagging feeling that maybe you’re not measuring up? Is this the real reason why you feel stressed out about school and marks?
For some reason – we call it grace – we have access to the God who has eternal purposes for this world and for our lives. What’s even better – God has an eternal purpose for your life. Can you fathom that? You might be feeling a lot of stress or pressure with your assignments and upcoming exams. But take a moment to know that you have been called by God into this world, and that you have access to this great God simply through faith.
We can claim a part in God’s eternal purposes with boldness and confidence. May God’s strength carry you through this week and give you encouragement to keep pressing on in all that you do!
Dear God, may I find boldness and confidence through faith in you. Grant me the gift of faith. Amen.
