“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16.
By the grace of God and through our faith in Jesus Christ alone, God has given us the privilege and the right to go right upto the Throne of Grace to obtain His mercy and grace and make our requests known to Him. Jesus too has repeatedly told us to ask the Father whatever we need in His name and the Father will give it to us. Therefore we can now go directly and boldly to the Father’s Throne of Grace and ask whatever we need and receive His grace, mercy and favour.
This is similar to Esther, she entered the king’s court without his permission for a specific need, and the king raised his scepter and saved her life and granted her request. Esther being the queen, could not enter the king’s throne boldly, she literally risked her life. But thanks to the perfect work of Jesus, His death and resurrection and our faith in Jesus alone, for our salvation, we are now children of God, and heirs in His Kingdom, and therefore we need to fear for our life, but can come boldly and confidently to the Throne of Grace and make our requests known to God the Father.
So let us make good use of this privilege that God has given us, while we still can, and let us know our Lord more intimately and personally. Let us come to His Throne of Grace boldly, not only to meet our needs, but also for our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, and even for those that are lost in the pleasures of this world.
Dear Father, thank you for giving us the privilege to come to your Throne, and to come boldly and ask whatever we need in Jesus name, and we know that you will grant our request, according to your perfect will and plan for our life. We pray that you help us recognise what a great privilege you have given us and to make good use of it, not only for us and our families, but even more for those that are lost. To You O Lord be all glory and honour, now and forevermore. Amen!
