Scripture for the Day – October 5, 2020
Hebrews 4:16: “Draw near with confidence to the throne of Grace.
Hebrews 4:16 says we can “draw near with confidence to the throne of grace.” We don’t have to hold anything back in prayer. And we don’t have to wonder if we are wasting our time. We have been authorized to enter His throne room. Using the name of Jesus.
Aren’t you glad it’s not a throne of judgement? Who among us could stand it? No, it’s a throne of grace, “unmerited favor.” It’s a throne because the One who sits on it is the Sovereign Ruler of the Universe.
It’s also where our Father gives His sons and daughters what we could never give ourselves. Yes, He gives us what we don’t deserve and could never earn, from a throne that never runs low in its provision- and it is all tied to our drawing near in prayer. God has all the grace we need to help us, but we have to go before His throne to ask for it. Therefore a prayer-less Christian is also a grace-less Christian. Christians who are not praying as a way of life are not growing in their spiritual life because they are not hanging around the throne that dispenses grace.
Notice, the grace we receive at God’s throne is designed to help us “in the time of need.” Think about that, Grace is given based on the need of the moment. God will not give you tomorrow’s grace until tomorrow, so don’t bother asking for it. But don’t worry, the provision of grace we have in Christ will not run out tomorrow, or ever! So you can’t go to God too often.
