New Living Translation:
“So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.”(Hebrews 4:16)
New English Translation:
“Therefore let us confidently approach the throne of grace to receive mercy and find grace whenever we need help.”
Amplified Bible, Classic Edition:
“Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace (the throne of God's unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need [appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we need it].”
Beloved, What a beautiful expression. A throne is the seat of a sovereign; a throne of grace is designed to represent a sovereign seated to dispense mercy and pardon, which we need in times like this. Sometimes when we are in tough situations we wonder where is God? Why won’t He answer? But maybe the tough situation is God’s helping hands at work. Sometimes the things that you think are bad happen because God is protecting you from an even worse situation that you didn’t see coming, so, put your full trust in the Lord. In every situation cry out to the mighty Lord for help. And always remember that God will work in the lives of His children and use trials for their own good and His glory. Remember, He said He will never leave nor forsake you, keep on knocking on His door and be patient. Come unto Him to find grace, favor strength, help, counsel, direction, support, for the various duties and trials of life.
