The Throne of Grace


Jesus sees what it is we really want and need, even when we don’t recognize what that might be.

Hebrews 4:13-16

Have you ever wondered what heaven is like? If you could create heaven according to your own specifications, what would you include?

At first the question seems easy—a few ideas spring to mind right away. But after several minutes of serious thought, it becomes apparent that we could never think up things that would give eternal satisfaction; what we might imagine as a source of endless joy would fall far short. The sad truth is that people spend a great deal of time pursuing something or somebody, only to come to the conclusion that their goal was not what they really wanted. The problem is this: Left to ourselves, we don’t know what it is we really want.

That is one reason we have a great High Priest presiding over the throne of grace. The Word of God tells us that “there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do” (Heb. 4:13).

In other words, Jesus Christ sees what it is we really want and need, even when we ourselves do not recognize what that might be. He knows how to find our hurt and soothe the pain.

And what’s even better, He is lovingly encouraging us to “draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Heb. 4:16). Be assured that your High Priest knows the true desires of your heart, and He is fitting you for the heaven He has already prepared.
