Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need, Heb. 4:16.
Jesus is touched with every feeling of need that we have. As many as touched Him were made whole. He has gone through everything that we have.
If you have not wasted any time and have given your employer an honest day's work, then you do not have to back up and get your check in a timid way. You can walk up boldly, and get your pay.
If we abide in Him and His Word abides in us, we can ask what we will and we will receive it, John 15:7. We can boldly take the answer from the Lord. A timid spirit is not of God. The righteous is as bold as a lion.
We can come boldly to the throne of grace. That is where Jesus is right at this moment making intercession for us, He is in the presence of God now for us.
There is a reservoir full of grace of God. We can tap the resources at any time. There is enough of the grace of God to supply all our need.
God will supply our physical need. God supplies the food for the sparrows. He takes care of the lilies of the field. We are of much more value than sparrows. Your Heavenly Father knows what things you have need of before you ask Him, Luke 12:30.
One time about thirty thousand people were following Christ. They did not have any bread and were way out in the country. The disciples thought they had a problem. Jesus said, "They need not depart; give ye them to eat" Matt. 14:16. That is what he is saying us today.
A boy had only five loaves and two small fishes, but he was willing to give what he had to the Lord. Jesus blessed and multiplied the loaves and fishes. Then the people had as much food as they needed and more. In fact they had twelve baskets full left.
My God is a God of abundance. He said that He gives us life and life more abundantly. He does not just barely give us enough to get by on.
God will supply all your Spiritual need. At the midnight hour, when the power of darkness is the strongest, we can look up and have cheer. We can be encouraged. Our spirits don't need to be discouraged. We can encourage ourselves in the Lord. "Delight thyself in the Lord and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart."
God says, "Be strong and of good courage." David encouraged himself in the Lord. Your spirit does not need to be oppressed or depressed, or surpressed. You may have a song in your heart at night. If you can keep your courage, you can have anything that you need, Mark 11:24.
God will supply the need of your soul. We believe in the whole gospel for the whole man, for the whole world. He does not halfway supply our need. He will go over and about. At midnight He will give you three loaves. One for the body; one for the spirit; one for your soul.
Jesus said, "They that be whole need no physician" Luke 5:31. He is the Great Physician that comes to heal the broken heart and the sick soul. He came to seek and to save that which is lost. There is no need in your being sin sick or bound by any kind of sin. The Great Physician is here to supply your every need.
Jesus is the Good Shepherd that leaves the ninety-nine and goes out in the mountain and finds that lost sheep. When He brings it in, there is more rejoicing in Heaven over the one lost sheep that is found than over the ninety-nine that "need no repentance" Luke 15:7.
Prodigal son was in a far country. He lost everything that he had. He was in need. No man gave unto him. He was down and far from home. He came to himself and saw that he was in need. He said, "I will arise and go to my father and say, I have sinned against heaven and against thee."
The father did not turn him away. he was moved with compassion. He was concerned about his great need. He restored to him all he had lost and more.
Your Father has all you need. He will put shoes on your feet and a coat on your back. The table is spread and the feast of the Lord is going on. He is bigger than your need.
Just put everything that you need in one package and label it "all my need" and bring it to the Lord now; it will please Him. My God shall supply all your need by Christ Jesus, Phil. 4:19.
Now is the acceptable time. Repeat this prayer:
"Dear Lord, have mercy on me a sinner. Forgive my sins in the Name of Jesus. I now accept Jesus Christ as my Savior. By your help I will live for you the rest of my life. I am Yours and You are mine. Amen"
