Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
According to the teachings of Apostle Paul, we are encouraged to approach the Throne of Grace with confidence to receive mercy and find help when we need it most. This is a foundational principle of prayer that is guaranteed to be effective. When we boldly enter the Throne of Grace, we are able to connect with our heavenly Father profoundly. Our spiritual eyes are opened, and we gain a deeper understanding of the mysteries of life and destiny. As believers in Jesus Christ, we have been granted the incredible privilege of accessing the Throne Room of God at any time. Through our faith in Him, we can stand before God without fear, knowing that we are righteous in His sight. This gives us the confidence to ask for whatever we need, trusting that our requests will be granted. Psalms 145:18 says, “The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.”
In a society characterized by privilege for the wealthy, famous, and powerful, it is reassuring to know that every individual who identifies as a child of God has equitable access to the Heavenly Father. In our Christian walk, we can confidently petition God for our needs and desires, mindful of His unwavering concern for our well-being. The spiritual boldness demonstrated by the servants of God in the Old and New Testaments is a common characteristic. They all believed that nothing is impossible with God and that He hears their prayers when they align with His Will. Elijah, a prayer giant, exhibited exceptional boldness in prayer. He challenged the prophets of Baal to a prayer contest on Mount Carmel, with them praying to Baal while he also prayed to the God of Israel. Elijah declared that the God who answers with fire will be the one they all serve (1 Kings 18:19-24). This was an act of immense spiritual boldness, and he emerged victorious. Similarly, Hezekiah boldly challenged the verdict of death and emerged victorious. He relied on the power of confidence and righteous consciousness (Isaiah 38:3,10). Jesus demonstrated confidence in prayer throughout His earthly ministry. In John 11:41-42, Jesus looked up to Heaven and said, “Father, thank you for hearing me. (You always hear me, of course, but I said it because of all these people standing here, so that they will believe you sent me.)” Men are more powerful in the Throne of Grace than when they are behind the most powerful guns or have political power. The church is more powerful when it unites in earnest prayer to God.
Beloved, approach the Throne of Grace boldly and confidently, not beggarly or uncertainly, and you will receive mercy, grace, and His help in times of need. Make demands on God for His preservative power and ask Him to intervene in any situation confronting your life. In prayer, always believe God exists and reward those who earnestly seek Him. Don’t waste your time standing outside Heaven’s Gates. Through Jesus, you belong in the very Throne Room of God. Don’t pray as one not qualified to be in His Presence; always be bold. Consciously listen to hear God speak to you whenever you pray. The answer to your prayers could be in what He drops into your heart or speaks in your ears. You need not fear, but come before Him with your needs, and the Lord’s help will come upon you! Today, approach Him with the boldness of a child who knows he is loved and wanted by His Father. Remember, whatever is available with God is accessible at the Throne of Grace, whether healing, supernatural supply, favor, or anointing.
O Lord, I ask to stay at the Throne of Grace as You show me great and mighty things in Jesus’ Name.
