WHERE TO PRAY—AT THE THRONE ROOM
“…the throne of grace. It is a throne set up on purpose for the dispensation of grace…” Charles Spurgeon (ref#212, p33).
“What a God our God must be, to thus appoint a meeting place….That God should have developed a throne of grace, a mercy-seat around which may gather the helpless, the burdened, the friendless, the vile, the guilty, and the needy, in clustering and welcome multitudes; that no poor one should meet with refusal or rejection, be his poverty never so great, his burden never so heavy, or his case never so desperate—this greatly develops and magnifies the riches of His grace, wisdom, and love to sinners.” Octavius Winslow (ref#135, Apr 11th).
FATHER, You have given me access to Your throne room through the greatest of sacrifice and I neglect too often to stop in and see You!! Where is my head? If I deem life is going well, I don’t think of praying. But the throne room is not just for ‘hollering help.” I forget the SPIRIT is always ready to point out my sins. There is always reason to frequent the throne room. Therefore, overwhelm me with my sins.
“…come you that are reduced to a beggarly bankruptcy by Adam’s fall and by your own transgressions. This is not the throne of majesty which supports itself by the taxation of its subjects, but a throne which glorifies itself by streaming forth like a fountain with floods of good things” Charles Spurgeon (ref#212, p36).
