    To come boldly to the throne of Grace to me means that I can come to God not fearing rejection or condemnation : Through the blood of Jesus I have access by faith into this Grace wherein I stand : And because I know that God will hear : I know that He will give mercy and I will find Grace in the eyes of God and will receive that which He has for me to let my light shine in a lost and dying world !!! Praise God !!!!

    We must walk with Faith and not by Sight. Faith comes only by hearing the word of God. Faith is a gift from God. The more we meditate God's words in our everyday life the more we recieve Faith from God. Jesus was having difficulties to us because of our Unbelief. Jesus came down to give us life in abundance and He shed his blood to us in order for us to be saved from the hands of the defeated enemy. Because of our Unbelief to Jesus we are still doing the old Sin. John 3:16 we must put this words into our hearts. There is no other Jehovah its only Jesus. Trust God, Seek God and Love God with all your heart and Mind. This is the first commandment that we have to obey and followed. All the desire of thine heart will be given and added. This is the Promised of our Lord Jesus our Savior. Praised him and thank him for everything he has done into our lives. Without his blood sheding for us we dont have life. Amen
