Jesus came to the throne of grace and found the strength and ability to do what he could not do in Himself. He chose to rely on His heavenly Father, just as you and I must.
"Let us therefore, come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in the time of need."
(Heb. 4:16)
He demonstrated how to face adversity through the power of the Holy Spirit. He knew what it was to feel the limitations of flesh.

He was tempted in every way as we are, yet He did not let His weakness dominate Him (Heb. 4:15). He came into the presence of His Father and found all that He needed (Heb. 4:16).

Weakness is not a sin. But to try to excuse disobedience because of human weakness is sin.

You have open access to the very presence and throne of God. You are invited to come boldly to the throne of God's grace and find the strength and ability you need.

God's Word says, "So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God" (Rom. 10:17). If faith grows by hearing the Word of God, then how does grace grow?

Grace grows by finding the presence of God and entering into it.

The Holy Spirit has places a high priority on prayer. It is the personal times of prayer that we come to His throne. There is a clear message to the Church that God wants us in his presence daily. The outgrowth of this renewed emphasis on prayer is that God's own people are growing in His grace.

A throne is a place of authority. You have been given the right and privilege to come into the highest place of authority in the universe.

As you approach God confidently, you can be filled with His confidence and inner ability to stand firm on His promise. His authority will rise within you to do His will. You will not stand in your own strength or authority, but in His.
