Therefore let us [with privilege] approach the throne of grace [that is, the throne of God’s gracious favor] with confidence and without fear, so that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find [His amazing] grace to help in time of need [an appropriate blessing, coming just at the right moment]. Hebrews 4:16 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
We approach Jehovahs throne with confidence not arrogance because we believe it is by Christs blood that we have the gift of grace which is forgiveness, that our filth is washed clean when we repent.
We also need to acknowledge our weaknesses and humbly, sincerely request The Holy Spirits assistance and strength to conquer them.
Jehovah will allow us to wrestle with our weaknesses until the point where they are going to defeat us and then come in like the cavalry. This is to teach us that we are too weak and in need of His Divine assistance. This teaches us to not only depend upon Him but to be grateful and respectful unto Him.
The end result is a deep love and admiration towards Him. Knowing our weaknesses we need to be aware of them and our circumstances.
We need to be aware of the danger of entering into a forbidden area because it will place us in the temptation zone which will overpower our weaknesses.
We need to discipline ourselves to avoid these places like the plague.
Discipline is incorporating what we have learned in the Holy Spirits Divine school into our daily lives. Joseph son of Jehovah.
So a alcoholic, when they become dry, need to be aware of certain streets that they cannot walk down because there is a liquor store there or a bar which will draw them into temptation.
Keep actively watching and praying that you may not come into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the body is weak. Matthew 26:41 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
Prayer: Please Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) bless me with Your Divine strength and wisdom to be able to conquer my weaknesses so as to not shame You the One I love the most. I humbly ask this in the name of He whose strength defeated satan on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
