Week 6 – Tuesday
Hebrews 4:16 NIV ”Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”
Sin separates us from God – unforgiveness is sin. Holding on to anger, resentment, and bitterness keeps us from living lives of joy. When there is blockage between God, and us we cannot experience the “promise-land” living offered through His grace and mercy. When we accept Christ into our hearts, we are accepting His example of living. Our primary goal is to draw near to God – we do this by getting to know and understand Christ’s character. Lay your list before the throne of grace with confidence and ask your Father to help you forgive. We alone are not capable of forgiving, but through Christ and the strength He offers, we can. Will you take the next step towards forgiveness? Can you ask God for the willingness to forgive everyone and everything thing on your list?

If you would like, you can unpack the verse S.O.A.P style:
S = Scripture; what is it that I’m reflecting upon.
O = Observation; what does this mean to me, what do I notice? What got my attention? Can I rephrase this in my own words?
A = Application; how can I apply this into my life? What action can I take as a result of what I just learned
P = Prayer; based on what I’ve learned and my application/action, pray – talk to God about your insight, ask for help, offer thanksgiving.
