Unbelievers don’t understand why we have such confidence in an invisible God. As a matter of fact, they think we are insane! They don’t know the mystery that has been revealed to us and the hope we’ve been given. We didn’t come to know Jesus without the prompting from the Holy Spirit; He opened our eyes to our need. In a lot of cases, He shows us who we really are, how great our sin is, and our distance away from Him. Because of our faith, we can come before Him with boldness.
We are watching a scary storm barreling toward the Carolina coastline. Those in its path have either fled, or are bracing for the impact. In both situations, whether they know Jesus or not, they are praying. When they don’t know Jesus, who are they praying to, the air? What are good vibes, and what do they do for you? However, those that do know Him are coming before Him with boldness to ask for protection. We have confidence in Him, and know that whatever the outcome, He will be the one who picks up the pieces and puts things back together.
Stand strong, mighty warriors of God and know He is with you!
in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through our faith in him. Ephesians 3:12
