“…Draw near with confidence to the Throne of Grace to RECEIVE….HELP in time of need.”- {Heb 4:16}

“HELP.” – The word picture is beautiful it is of one who upon hearing a CRY for help comes Running to Assist, Aid, Help.

He not only has the power to help but has the heart- the gracious heart to help! He is for you!! He wants you to know Him. He calls you to come to Him, confidently because of the work of His Son, in your time of need.

Such is the Gracious heart of┬áHim who sits upon the Throne who hears your CRY for help when it is made to Him. This is the assurance we find at the Throne of Grace! Note His readiness, His response to the “cry.”He hears… What hope, what Graciousness, what a God we have. I have found comfort in this passage these past days. God is not far off, indifferent, or preoccupied but upon His Throne, He is actively, intimately, and graciously involved. Comfort and Companionship are found in Him at His Throne of Grace”…in time of need.” Think about How He has supplied His Son, our Great High Priest who intercedes for us and Empathizes- feels the very feelings we feel- in our weaknesses and temptations as v 15 speaks of and bids us draw near in confidence, expectantly that we will receive – not- rejection- but “Help” in our time of need at His Throne. And His Help…coming to assist us is seen in verse 15 of His Son- our Great High Priest and Mercy, and Grace and Help for us… He has written it to encourage us to draw near…Think of How He has helped you in times past when you cried out to Him and Thank Him for His graciousness and coming to your aid.

We have much to be thankful to Him for and may He occupy our thinking more and more and may we learn to look to Him and encourage others to likewise draw near to receive….“HELP” in time of need, from our Gracious God. Upon the Throne of God for the child of God, there is a Friend who hears, cares, and acts!
