"The Throne"

"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

A throne is the seat of authority by a ruling sovereign. It's a place of exaltation. It's a place of royalty, dignity and power. You and I have been given access to come boldly before a throne. But not just any throne. It's not the throne of a mere man or another person. It's the throne occupied by God Himself. It's the throne of the King of kings and Lord of lords. It's the throne of the One who created and rules the universe. It's the throne that is exalted above all the thrones of men.

Are you taking advantage of the access that you have been given to come before His throne? Often, we stand afar off when we are in need instead of coming to His throne for help. What is your need today? Come before His throne and make your request known through prayer and supplication. His is a throne where we find grace. It's a throne where there is mercy. It's a throne where we can find strength, peace, joy, comfort. At His throne we find everything we need in our time of need.

God desires that you approach His throne. At Jesus' death when the veil of the temple was rent, the "veil" that separated God and His throne from mankind was rent also. Every hindrance, every obstacle has been removed out of the way so that we might come before Him. Don't stand outside His court. Don't keep struggling with your need. Go before His throne. It's a throne of grace. That means He will not turn you away and you will find what you need.

Have a great day. You have been given access to come before the throne of God, so go before His throne of power and grace when you are in need.
