COME BOLDLY TO THE THRONE OF GRACE
[The Word of God comes from our Abba Father, and He assures us that His word has real usefulness, and is infinitely wise. He certainly knew how to construct his word, so it would speak to the state of each heart; and he has given it that immeasurable fullness of meaning, so it will fit the needs of all who read it.] “…the word of God is alive and active…it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” (Heb. 4:12) [God never authorizes any tribulation to happen to his children, which he does not use to turn to their advantage. When he permits us to hunger, it is so HIS MERCY MAY BE THE MORE EVIDENT as He provides us with our necessaries of life. Listen to what Moses said to God’s people Israel:] “Be careful to follow every command I am giving you today, so that you may live and increase and may enter and possess the land the LORD promised on oath to your ancestors. Remember how the LORD your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years, to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands. He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but ON EVERY WORD THAT COMES FROM THE MOUTH OF THE LORD.” (Deut. 8:1-3) [Our high priest, Jesus Christ, sympathizes with our weakness. Even though he is the Son of God, and equal in his Divine nature with God; yet, He also has partaken of human nature, and having submitted to ALL ITS TRIALS and DISTRESSES, and being IN ALL POINTS TEMPTED LIKE AS WE ARE, without feeling or consenting to sin; he is able to support us when we are tempted.] “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are–yet he did not sin. LET US THEN APPROACH GOD’S THRONE OF GRACE WITH CONFIDENCE, so that WE MAY RECEIVE MERCY AND FIND GRACE to help us in our time of need.” (Heb. 4:15-16)
Be blessed as you praise The Lord, knowing that WE MAY RECEIVE MERCY AND FIND GRACE TO HELP US IN OUR TIME OF NEED!
