Chaos crept in and took the world by surprise…
Many just fell apart and allowed themselves to be overwhelmed by the suffering. Though there’s talk of a cure coming from here or there, deep down everyone knows that a real and effective earthly cure is still far away.
Added to the pain of the many losses, there is uncertainty about tomorrow. This strain of coronavirus swept in and proved that the world has no control over its existence. It humiliated the scientists. We’ve never had so much conflicting advice in the battle against an illness. COVID 19 shook the world’s economy and exposed the fragile nature of its political systems, which are struggling to find effective strategies to contain this pandemic.
Throughout this crisis we’ve heard cries and complaints from children, parents, the elderly, the unemployed, the sick and the destitute. Suffering people everywhere are crying out, but most don’t know how to express the despair they feel inside.
Yes, life is hard, and it rarely pauses to give you time to cry, complain or just fall apart. Whether you’re healthy or in pain, honored or humiliated, happy or sad, time doesn’t stand still. Life goes on. And when there’s no hope, when people are depressed and desperate, some even think of suicide.
And yet, there’s a perfect cure for the blow we’ve all suffered!
Yes, you read that correctly! There’s a place we can find immediate relief from every problem, and it requires just one step from you. You will not continue to be overwhelmed by your problems when you have the courage to run to the Throne of God and ask for His favor.
The invitation has been made…
“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” (Hebrews 4:16)
All of us have access to the Most High. Don’t leave to others what you yourself have been told to do. The perfect moment is today – when you’re in distress.
The Word of God guarantees that the Lord Jesus will accept, listen carefully and answer our cry. He won’t be late for this appointment, and He won’t ask us to come back later, because He knows each of our struggles.
The Lord is on His Throne, where we will first be shown mercy and then the favor we so desperately need. He’ll show us kindness right from the start. He’s promised to accept us. We can share our needs with Him in detail and find a solution to each one.
So, let’s approach the Throne of Grace without fear, because we’ve been given the freedom to do so. But we can only expect to receive the answer we need if we believe and do not doubt.
