Boldness is something that not a whole lot of people think about, but people with autism struggle with. I personally have not, but it has come up.
People with autism are often wracked with fear and afraid to go up to people and talk. But what if there was a way that people with autism can learn to come boldly unto another person?
Well there is!
Hebrews 4:16 says let us therefore come BOLDLY to the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
That means that we as His children can come boldly to His throne and talk to our Father!
We don’t have to be shy or skittish… we can just sit at His feet and talk without being afraid.
Even if you don’t have autism and you have just neglected your time with the Lord, you still can go in boldly to the throne because he is Daddy God and He loves you!
I have told you that there have been times where I have not been totally devoted to having my time with the Lord everyday, but when I have gotten back into the habit I’ve noticed that God ALWAYS welcomes me back with open arms.
So how do you go boldly unto God?
We do it by simply sitting at His feet everyday, looking at Him as you would a parent.
When I want my mom or dad, I just go to them because I know I can. HE IS YOUR DADDY GOD!
Yes, even when you have strayed away you can still come to Him unafraid.
So friends, go boldly unto Him because He craves it, and so does your spirit.
Remember God loves you and so do I!!
