(Obtain Mercy For The Lost!)
TO THE BIBLE: Hebrews 4:16
“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
I’m always stirred in my spirit when I think of this truth: that we can obtain mercy and find grace to help not just ourselves, but others also, in times of need. We’re not asked to pray or beg God for it, but to come boldly to the throne of grace and obtain it. That means we can obtain mercy for the lost.
No wonder Jesus said, “…[Just] as the Father has sent Me forth, so I am sending you…if you forgive the sins of anyone, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of anyone, they are retained” (John 20:21,23 AMPC).
This means you can declare to the wayward or wicked, “In the Name of Jesus, you’re forgiven,” because you’ve obtained mercy from the throne of grace in their behalf.
Similarly, you can obtain mercy for your school, city or nation, even one full of spiritually and morally bankrupt people. You can pray like this: “Father, in the Name of Jesus, I obtain mercy for them.
Let the Spirit of salvation be released upon them in the Name of Jesus!” Yes, you can obtain mercy for the wayward, the wicked and the lost in your city or nation; you can find grace to help in time of need.
There’s abundant grace in God’s throne-room to help the lost, the sick, and the downtrodden. It’s time for you to take up your position as an intercessor to obtain mercy and find grace to help such people in your world.
Psalm 107:1; Ephesians 2:4
Dear Father, I thank you for the abundance of grace and mercy that’s flowing from your throne of grace! I receive right now, the grace for salvation of souls for the lost in my neighbourhood, city and nation. May the veil be taken off their minds for the light of the glorious gospel of Christ to shine through, bringing them salvation and healing, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
