“Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16 NASB
It is precisely in our time of need — when we feel that we are unholy and unlike our Savior — that we are able to come to the throne of grace with confidence to find His sanctifying and forgiving help.
How hard this can be to believe at times! When do we feel less confident to approach God's throne than when we are especially aware of falling short of His glory? God has set His seal to this truth; He has settled it like an anchor: "Draw near with confidence to the throne of grace...in your time of need."
Look up, Saint. Your Refiner is near, and ready to fulfill all his promises towards you. Only draw near to Him and You will find the mercy, grace and help that your time of need requires. He will forgive you, cleanse you, and you set you on your feet to walk in holiness and love before Him again.
He is more committed to us who trust in Him than we could ever understand.
"The secret of the LORD is for those who fear Him, And He will make them know His covenant" (of grace). Psalm 25:14
