(Come To His Throne Of Grace And Collect All You Need)
By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
TO THE BIBLE: “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
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 winning souls? Which grace do you want? You could even get more grace for your academics and your finances.
James 4:6 says, “…He gives more grace….” Hallelujah! It’s God’s desire to increase the grace in 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 Jesus, our Lord.
Paul, writing to Timothy, said: “You 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 walk out of any predicament.
John 1:16 shows us that 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. 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.

Speak: Dear Father, I’m grateful for your grace that’s multiplied daily in my life, causing your blessings, beauty, perfections and excellence to be revealed in and through me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
