Receiving Grace through Prayer

 

Hebrews 4:16

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

John 16:23

“And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.”

1 Peter 5:10 tells us that God is the God of all grace, which means that He gives grace of all types and in all measures. Every kind and every measure of grace is available with God. God is the Source of all grace and it is of His fulness that we all receive grace unto grace (John 1:16). Therefore we can always come to Him in prayer to receive grace.

Our opening verse tells us to come boldly to the Throne of Grace that we may obtain mercy and find grace in time of need. This is an open invitation to come to God’s Throne of Grace to find grace. God is faithful and merciful to give everyone who asks Him in the Name of Jesus. Beloved, the Word says to come boldly, not timidly. Why? Because Jesus has made a new and living way through which you may come by His death and substitutionary work on Calvary. He has become your confidence and ability to approach God; hence the boldness to come into God’s Throne of Grace.

In John 16:23, Jesus tells us to ask the Father for whatever we require in His Name, and the Father will give it unto us. That includes grace, doesn’t it? Again, in Jeremiah 33:3 the Word tells us to call upon the Name of the Lord and He will answer us and show us great and mighty things which we do not know. That includes grace, doesn’t it? Beloved, we have free access to God on the bill of Jesus’ finished works, to come before Him and receive everything for which Jesus died. Grace is available for the taking; will you receive it? Go ahead and ask the Father in Jesus’ Name. Don’t hesitate, don’t drag your feet. Go for it! It’s all yours in Jesus’ Name.

 

My Solid Front (Confession): Father I thank You for the privilege to come before Your Throne of Grace to obtain mercy and to find grace to help in time of need. In the Name of Jesus, I avail myself of this precious and priceless opportunity. Amen.
