Hebrews 4:14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess.

15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are --yet was without sin.

16 Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

Some folk don’t need any help! I’ve never met them, but I’ve read about them. You know those people that have it all together. They got it going on! They seemingly have it all! I could spend the next several minutes describing these types of people, but the truth is they don’t exist. Everybody needs help! So get over yourself and stop thinking that you’re getting on God’s nerves just because you seem to have a need for something every day! God has set things up so that you need Him to survive and when you get tired of just surviving you’ll need Him to thrive.

He loves it when you lean on Him for strength. Remember the Word of God that simply states, “You have not because you ask not”? Didn’t Jesus put it in simple terms. Ask, and you shall receive! Seek, and you shall find! Knock and it shall be opened unto you! You just need to get it out of your mind that you are bothering your Heavenly Father when you find yourself in the time of need or when you need help!

I love this scripture for so many reasons. One truth is that we are not in this thing all alone. We have a High Priest who took His own blood and offered it up to God in payment for your sin. That same blood bought you out of the control or slavery of darkness and delivered you into His Kingdom of Power.

Jesus, our High Priest, not only represented us as the lamb of God who died in our place, but now as the High Priest, He ushers us into the Father’s presence with full assurance that we have a right to be there. Not just the legal rights by adoption to be there, but we have full permission to lift up our voice with confidence that we will receive mercy and grace to help us, (there it is, we need help) in our time of need. We have a standing invitation to come before the Omnipotent God, The Almighty God, The Only God of the Heavens and the Earth, that we might receive unmerited favor and grace. Mercy is unmerited favor. We are invited to come and receive as much of His unmerited favor that we need. You can’t bankrupt God when it comes to mercy. Ephesians says, that God is “RICH IN MERCY”. Now, that is a huge term in my finite thinking. If God uses gold for His streets, and pearls for His gates and precious gems for the walls of the city, He has built then, well I would say that He is pretty well off! That’s a Kentucky term meaning you are really rich if you are “Well Off”! This is God who owns it all, the earth, them that dwell on the earth and the fullness there of. It means He owns it all! This Rich God has invited you to come before Him to receive the favor that you didn’t do anything to deserve! He is rich in this favor! AND, He has said for you to come in and get it with boldness! It’s not based on anything you have done to deserve it. It’s based on the price of His Sons blood to purchase your ownership and make you a part of His family. Only Sons of God have the right to come in with boldness and find favor and grace to help in the time of need.

So what I am saying is, PUSH!! Pray Until Something Happens! Praise Until Something Happens! WE NEED TO PRAY, JUST TO MAKE IT TODAY! BUT OUR PRAYING IS NOT IN VAIN! Our Heavenly Father hears the prayers of His Sons and Daughters and is going to help you in your time of need! YOU JUST NEED TO ASK HIM!

Like M.C. Hammer put it! It’s Hammer Time! It’s time to pray! We need to pray if we’re going to make it today! Put on some M.C. Hammer britches, offer up a prayer for help and then dance around like you’ve already received the answer! You might just cause the heavens to open up and cause a shower of God’s blessing like you’ve never seen before!

Prayer:   Father, Jesus told us that we could come before you and ask anything in His name and that you would hear it and give us the petitions of our heart. We take off our old coat of sin that is displeasing you and we put on the coat of righteousness and right standing that Jesus said was ours. We put on our coat of favor and ask for your help! In the name of your son, Jesus!  

It’s coming!  Help is on the way! Thank you Jesus!

Love you no matter what!
