Grace to help in time of need…

(Mary Winslow, “Words of Loving Counsel and Sympathy”)

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.” Hebrews 4:16

The Lord knows what we require every step we take through this poor, trying, wilderness world — and stands ready to supply our needs, small and great. He is concerned in all that concerns us. Let it be our daily habit to cast our care upon Him — who cares for us.

We must be growing in a better acquaintance with our own souls — as poor and needy; and with Christ — who is all and everything to us. For in Him all fullness dwells — and that fullness is for us! He is our rich storehouse. We need only to go and tell Him — and His heart is open to us in a moment. Let us live upon Him — and go to Him constantly! He is our Almighty Friend! 

Could we look into His heart, and see how precious we were to Him, and how truly He is near to us, watching over us, directing all things for our good and His glory — how would our present grievances vanish from our minds, as we sit as beloved children at the feet of Jesus.
