God requires us to come to Him boldly in prayer so as to obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.  The Bible says:

“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” – Hebrews 4:16

In the light of the above scriptures, many believers pace up and down ‘with boldness’ probably shouting at the top of their voices when they pray whether in church, at home or elsewhere.  This is scripturally correct.  Believers even act on the Scripture that gives believers license to command God in prayer.  Isaiah 45:11.  This is also correct.

However, the principles of scriptures all apply.  You cannot use one scripture to break another.  Only the righteous are permitted to be bold before God.  The Bible says:

“The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.” – Proverbs 28:1

Whatever looks like boldness without holiness is bold-face.  Bold-faced Christians are spiritual impostors.  They are religious fraudsters.  Trying to ‘command God in prayer’ while living in sin is not just self-deceit, it self-destructs.

There are many people that have learnt the language of the church, dress like members of the body, demonstrate the demeanor of members of the body but all together live contrary to God’s demands for holiness.  Modern technology or contemporary vogue cannot change God or His Word.

You must live holy as He is holy!  That is what makes you look like God.

Scriptures for meditation: Isaiah 59:1-15; Psalm 66:18

Jesus is Lord!
