Approaching the Throne of Grace

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. – (Hebrews 4:16)

 

Approaching the throne of grace is a fancy way of saying that we are meant to pray, to call on Christ, in our times of need. He wants us to come before Him with confidence, trusting that He is merciful and that His grace is enough to cover all that is required to continue on. Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father, continually interceding on our behalf. He understands our weaknesses and our struggles personally, as He Himself, experienced the same – without sin. His heart is for us, so we can come confidently, trusting that His grace is more than enough.

 

Let us approach,Approaching the Throne of Grace

the throne of His grace;

with confidence,

our hope to embrace.

Mercy awaits,

His grace is enough;

to meet our needs,

when the times are tough.

Pray to the One,

Who hears our heart cries;

our Source of strength,

Love never denies.

Answers may not,

look how we had hoped;

His way is best,

let’s trust His approach.

 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that we can approach the throne of Your grace with confidence, because You sent Your Son and made the way for us to receive mercy and find grace in our times of need. Thank You that You never leave us nor forsake us, and that Your love for us is unending. Forgive us for our fearfulness when things do not align with the way we think they ought to go, and help us to trust You, in all things and at all times. Thank You that You are more than enough. Help us to live and love as You have designed us to do. May many come to know the saving grace available in You, as we walk with confidence as You have called us to do. Be glorified, O God, in every word, deed and prayer presented before You this day. Amen.

Let love and faithfulness never leave you; …write them on the tablet of your heart. – Proverbs 3:3

  1. I love this for today! I love how the older translations state confidence as “boldly” for that is what real confidence is! He wants us to come as sons and daughters, not hesitant in the knowledge that His grace IS more than sufficient for ANYTHING! That is intimacy, that is what was restored to us through Christ Jesus and if we are His, we know He truly IS at the right hand of the Father standing there as the advocate is always is against the lies of ALL enemies!
    God bless you as you continue to minister to us and the Lord!! Great message, great devotional!!

  2. good read….I like the line, “pray to the one who hears our heart cries…” I was blessed by your words today! God bless you
