Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. (Hebrews 4:16)
We don’t usually think of God as king, because the king figure isn’t one we’re all familiar with in modern times. Not to mention, the king is also not someone you can approach at any time, much less cosy up to.
But our God is king and close to us. He is the Sovereign Lord who rules with power over the earth (Isaiah 40:10-26) and gathers us in His arms, close to His heart (v.11).
This King, the most powerful Being in the universe, has made us His children and brought us into His fold. We can approach His throne with full confidence, knowing He will readily give the mercy and grace we so need.
Don’t waste the precious privilege you have. Go see the King today.
Some questions for you to think over:
- When was the last time you got really close and personal with God? What did you learn about Him and yourself?
- Have you ever thought about God as King? How do you think that helps you see your day-to-day life differently?
