Countless times during the day, homeschooling parents are approached by their children with a request. Expectantly, they come for advice, help with a problem, or words of encouragement and love. The thought that you might not have the answer, the time, or the ability to help never crosses your mind. Most homeschool parents gladly respond by doing all they can to meet these great expectations.
If you are a child of the King, you also have the same ability to come before your heavenly Father with your requests. Hebrews 4:16 tells us, "Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need." Unlike the limitations you face when meeting your child's requests, Jesus has the ability to give you everything you need and waits to show you the "exceeding riches of His grace" (Ephesians 2:7). He never gets tired when you ask Him countless questions or even the same question repeatedly. Christ even loves you with an "everlasting love" and seeks to draw you unto Himself (Jeremiah 31:3b).
Is there a question on your mind that you would like to talk about with Jesus? Are you wondering how to pay your bills on one income, how to find time during the day for yourself, or how to seek forgiveness from your children for losing your patience? Because Christ shed His blood on the cross, you can come boldly before God's throne of grace. You don't even have to wait your turn! God is capable of multi-tasking, and He can meet more than one need at a time. All you have to do is come, ask, and receive. "And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him" (1 John 5:14-15).
Lord, thank You for being such a great God who can meet all my needs. I rejoice that I can come to You each day and find the help, advice, love, and encouragement I need to homeschool. I worship You today! In Jesus' name, Amen.
