Grace to Help

In the old testament a man named Jacob had a dream in which he saw a staircase leading from earth to heaven with God standing at the top of the stairs. Jacob was in the desert and on the run because his brother was plotting to kill him. Though he could have returned home and asked his father for protection he did not because his own deception and lies had estranged him from his dad. But there in the darkness of the wilderness he discovered that God still had a plan for him.

If we have been born again God also has a plan for us. There will always be a staircase of grace which our loving heavenly Father has made for us. We do not need to climb the stairs to His door like strangers showing up for handouts. God who did not even spare the life of His own Son in order to make us His own wants to bless us today. He looks forward in eager anticipation to our arrival. There grace and provision for our needs is waiting. Why should we hold back? What need is so urgently pressing that we hurry out our door without Him? All we will ever need is there in His presence at the very top of the stairs!

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 NKJV

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
