Finding Your Miracle in the Throne Room

Finding Your Miracle in the Throne Room

“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

Are you in a “time of need” right now? We all are, in one way or another. And this verse tells us exactly what to do in order to find the breakthrough we need: Come boldly into God’s throne room and tell Him we need His help!

We see this priority modeled in the life of Jesus. Stepping away from the chaos and busyness of the crowds, the Master went up on a mountain to pray alone:

In the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed (Mark 1:35).

In contrast, most of us are continually on the run, pushing to keep up, always having something else to get done. But Jesus showed us that our spiritual life must be renewed day by day through prayerful, intimate fellowship with our Heavenly Father.

I know life is busy for most of us. There never seems to be enough time, money, or rest breaks from life’s pressures. Yet in the midst of all the turmoil and noise of our lives, God is whispering to us, “Be still, and know that I am God …” (Psalm 46:10).

Can you hear His call? Have you even stopped to listen? Do you have the comfort of knowing He is with you, right now?

God wants to be your truest friend. He longs to spend time with you. But He’s asking you to quiet your heart, enter His throne room, and listen to His instructions (Luke 10:39-42).


When was the last time you were alone with God? How long has it been since you removed the distractions, turned off the noise around you, and listened for the voice of the Holy Spirit?

The Lord waits for you to share your dreams, concerns, and fears with Him. In His presence you’ll find fulfillment, freedom, and joy like you’ve never known before (Psalm 16:11). He is not far off, but right there waiting to meet your deepest needs.

So get alone and quiet your soul. As you meditate on Him and open His ageless Book, you will hear His gentle words of affirmation and instruction. His truths will no longer be mere head knowledge, for they will be written on your heart.

Gaining New Strength

The Bible teaches that God Himself is the answer to your every need (Psalm 34:10). As you tell Him of your joys and hopes and desires, you’ll receive back His answers on the questions that once paralyzed you with indecision. He will calm your fears, give you His perspective, and fill you with peace and rest – even when the world is going crazy all around you.

As you wait on the Lord, you will gain new strength and soar above life’s storms like an eagle (Isaiah 40:31). Even more important, your heart will become one with His.

Friend, your Good Shepherd has promised to lead you beside still waters, to give you rest in green pastures, and to restore your soul (Psalm 23). As you spend time alone with Him each day, He will make sure nothing separates you from His love. Even on the day of battle, you will have overwhelming victory (Romans 8:31-39).

Don’t let anything stop you from finding the place of prayer. The door to God’s throne room is open wide!
