Hebrews 4:16 says, "Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need." Let us come boldly (or with confidence)... That's the way we come to God. We come to God with a bold confidence before the throne of God, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Now this is one of the most powerful little verses in the entire Bible. You don't even know it when you read it, but it's a direct extension of the Old Testament "Mercy Seat." I don't have time to talk about all that could be said here, but the "Mercy Seat" literally means "the place of covering up." And this place of covering up is what's known as kabod (the Hebrew word for glory) and it means a covering of God's presence.
I don't know about you, but I need God's covering over my life. I want God's presence to cover me. I need God's presence to cover my children when they go to school. I need God's covering when I make big/small decisions in my life. I need Him to cover me when the doctor says something?
So won't you come boldly to the throne of grace for a covering of His presence over your life?
