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
Notice that our opening verse didn’t say, “ask God for mercy,” but to “obtain” or “collect” mercy. Do you need mercy in your life? Don’t pray, “O God, have mercy on me!” That won’t work because He already had mercy on the whole world when He sent Jesus. Jesus was the extended mercy of God. Now, you’re to come boldly to the throne of grace and “collect” it.
The next part says, “…and find grace to help in time of need.” You have to determine which grace you need, because there are different “graces.” Is it the grace for healing, or the grace for multiplication? Is it the grace for winning souls? Which grace do you want? You could even get more grace for your business and for your finances. James 4:6 says, “…he giveth more grace….” It’s God’s desire to increase the grace on your life every time. 2 Peter 1:2 tells us how His grace is multiplied in your life: it’s through the Word—the knowledge of God, and of Jesus, our Lord.
The Lord Jesus told Paul, after he besought God to help him in 2 Corinthians 12:9, “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
Paul, writing to Timothy, said: “Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus” (2 Timothy 2:1). In other words, “take advantage of the grace that is in Christ Jesus.” You can take advantage of that grace even now, and rebuke cancer or any kind of sickness and disease from your body. You can take advantage of it and walk out of any predicament. John 1:16 says, “And of his fullness HAVE ALL WE RECEIVED, and grace for grace.” We’ve all received of His overflowing grace; that grace, working in you, is the power of promotion and unending success. The Holy Spirit, who Himself is the Spirit of grace, lives in you (if you are born again). He has all the grace you need for an extraordinary life of excellence, victory, and dominion; take advantage of His grace and reign as a king in life (Romans 5:17).
