Grace: God's Provision for Every Need
“Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16
Seeking Him requires humility, honesty, and repentance.
Do you feel these requirements are too much for God to ask of His people? Yes, it would be too much if we had to do it alone.
But God gives grace. Extravagant grace. His undeserved favor and enabling power. Grace was given at our salvation, but it didn’t stop there. It continues to be poured out on us to overflowing.
The apostle Paul told us in I Timothy 1,
“…the grace of our Lord overflowed for me with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.” I Timothy 1:14
Now is not the time to waver in our faith. It is time to be convinced of and confident in God’s grace. When every part of our being seems to be saying “I just keep failing…this will never work,” we must draw near to His throne of grace.
Every step of Seeking Him is done with an outpouring of God’s grace. We just need to keep coming to His throne for it. It is there for the asking. In fact, the more we are struck with our neediness, the more ready we are to receive His grace.
David, in Psalm 86, demonstrated this:
“Incline Your ear, O Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and need… Be gracious to me, O Lord, for to You do I cry all the day…. For You, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon You. Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer; listen to my plea for grace." Psalm 86: 1,3,5,6
Do you see David’s confidence as He comes to God’s throne of grace? He does not hold back in fear or doubt, but his faith is obvious.
Something else that is evident is David’s humility. His confidence and boldness are in God’s grace, not in his ability or goodness.
“But He gives more grace. Therefore it [the Scripture] says, ‘God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.’” James 4:6
And He certainly will, because He has promised. Come boldly to His throne of amazing grace!
I don't know about you, but I know me, and I need A LOT of God's grace! I'm so glad He freely dispenses it for every need, because this girl needs it, daily! How will you seek Him this week?
