Every Believer knows that living the Christian life is NOT always a “bed of roses” every human being experiences challenges and difficulties during their life. Speaking personally, we need an ever increasing revelation that WITHOUT HIM WE CAN DO NOTHING.

May we never feel “I have been there before, I can handle this” I am seeing more and more why the Disciples cried out to Jesus in John 6:68 NKJV “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We can’t handle the challenges alone, and JESUS IS THE SOURCE OF THE ANSWER to our challenges..

I have come to see the awesome truth and promise in Heb. 4:1 NKJV.

Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

PASSION So now we come freely and boldly to where love is enthroned.

AMP. N.T. Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace (the throne of God’s unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need [appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we need it].

MESSAGE So let’s walk right up to him and get what he is so ready to give. Take the mercy, accept the help.

Naturally speaking, we personally have no access into the presence of God, but because Jesus paid the supreme sacrifice and shed His sinless blood, and rose again for our justification we can come confidently, and boldly into the throne-room and find God’s grace and help in every situation.

So let us do as Peter encourages us to do in 1 Peter 5:7 NKJV Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

PASSION Pour out all your worries and stress upon him and leave them there, for he always tenderly cares for you.

AMP.N.T. Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.

I trust this simple blog may encourage you today, there maybe even just one reader who is struggling at this time, cast all your cares on Him, (and ask Him to help you leave them at His feet) and he will give you the wisdom and and the strength to deal with this present challenge.
