...in whom we have boldness and confident access through faith in Him.

What is the boldest thing you have ever done? Facing your fears can lead to some pretty positive results in your life. Many times, overcoming obstacles is the way toward greater boldness. As we overcome a fear barrier, we are compelled to conquer whatever is next through a renewed sense of confidence and purpose. God works powerfully through us in this way.

What an amazing reality that, because of Christ and our faith in Him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence. We are wise to carry this confident access of God’s presence into every situation we face. We have freedom in sweet fellowship with our Heavenly Father, knowing that He hears and answers all of our needs.

Sometimes we need to simply be reminded of how much assurance is already graciously made available to us. Romans 8:11 tells us that the incredible power that raised Jesus from the dead is the very same power that dwells in each of His followers! Are you tapping into that power source that is so readily available to you? What is God telling you to be bold in today? He will give you the courage you need. Take that next step!

• Do you consider yourself a bold person? Why or why not?

• How does the New Covenant in Jesus give assurance in your life?

• Thank God for the boldness and confidence that He provides us through a right relationship with Jesus Christ. Ask Him to help you be mindful of this in a new way that grows your faith today.
