The Throne of Grace

When the "hard thing" comes, where do you find the grace to walk through it?

Where do you find the grace for hope when it seems so hopeless?

Where do you find the grace that brings the peace to quiet the chaos going on in the pit of your stomach?

Once the shock wears off, and you begin to feel again, that's when you begin to feel the pain.
Where is the grace for that?

The words are spoken and you hear them, but they're not making any sense.
Where do you find the grace to process and understand?

Hopelessness sets in and you get a glimpse of a very bleak future.
Where do you find the grace that helps you to go on?

"Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.  For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.  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 4:14-16

His Word tells us that we can come to Him and find the grace we need.  But not only that, we can come boldly to the throne of grace.

When we come to that throne of grace, we find mercy, we find grace, we find understanding and compassion because this Word also tells us He is touched with the feeling of our infirmities.  He sympathizes with our weaknesses because He Himself has known temptation.

This throne of grace is where we find grace because Jesus is the one sitting on this throne.

"And of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace.  For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ."
John 1: 16, 17

I have this magnet on my refrigerator; I've had it for a long time.  I believe it speaks a truth that we need to hold on to when those "hard things" come.

The Will of God will never lead you where the Grace of God cannot keep you because there is nowhere that His grace isn't!!  His grace is ours if we just look for it.

Jesus is ever reaching, ever pursuing, ever calling us to Himself.  His grace is both abundant and amazing, enabling how and where we can hardly imagine.

Boldly go before that throne of grace today.
Find that help He is so willing to give in your time of need.
