Finding your way …

“Therefore, let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16 New American Standard

One sentence of truth can hold your life together when everything seems to be crumbling. One sentence .. one word .. one ounce of grace falling on you from a throne that once was used to hold a nailed-up body. That throne of grace has seen very real scars. It bears the dried blood of the One who sits on the throne. It is a gracious throne where you will find help in your time of need. You only need to approach this throne. You’re invited to approach with confidence. But who is really confident when your insides are broken into pieces and the world around you grows silent? Your confidence is in the One who sits on the throne. He will never leave you or forsake you. He won’t quit. He won’t give up on you. What He will do is complete his life in you. Jesus is your confidence. You can’t buy it .. earn it .. or trade for it. He invites you to trust his life .. his words .. and his grace. Can you trust Him to care for you today? Can you trust Him for your marriage .. your family .. and “all” that goes into your life today? All you have to do is approach .. you’ll receive mercy and find grace. No need is too great .. No grace is withheld. When you approach this throne .. your hands become unclenched .. your heart unguarded .. your voice quiet. There is mercy to receive and you have to let go of all those things that kept you away. Every need is different but His grace is there .. available .. and free. And for you to approach … it only takes a moment …

“For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6 New American Standard

About Ken Chester

I love seeing Christ become alive and real in someone's life. It is amazing what happens when Jesus moves in and starts to renovate a life. When I'm not riding my road bike, I am usually walking our corgi named Trinity (she came that way) and corgi-lab named Lowrider. Carolyn and I are transforming our backyard. And a book is on the way. ...Stay tuned ... Ken
