“Before the Throne”

I come before the Lord, as I would come before a king on his mighty throne. I come kneeling in humility, wearing dirty rags not fit for a King’s eyes but with my requests, and my cries… “Your Majesty,” I petition, “will you attend to my requests? Will you bring justice to my situation? Will you show your magnificent mercy upon me?” The Lord King holds out his scepter to me as an act of acknowledgment. He sits there in royal apparel, noble in presence and mighty in word. He speaks, “I delight to bring justice to you. I desire to show my mercy upon your life. I find joy in my subjects, and I love when they seek me for their requests.” But the Lord King does not stop with just my requests. He sends His servants to come and adorn me with a precious robe, one that His Son has worn. He has His servants place rings on my fingers, and invites me to stay there with Him in the palace as He makes my problems right, as He heals my broken heart, as He mends my wounds, and as He brings justice and mercy into my situation. I ask, “My Lord, my King, how can I repay you for what you have done, and what you say you will continue to do in my situation?” The Lord King replies, “I am the King, you are not. You can never repay me. This is my delight, and this is my choice. I love those who love me. And I answer those who petition me. You have brought to me your pain and your broken heart, and in return, I have given you something new.”

This is my Lord: the King of Kings…

“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

God Bless,
