4/5 The Time of Need

Heb 4:16 Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

Jesus was tempted as we are and he understands our dilemma. He isn’t aloof as one who was rich and had never suffered as we do. He is one has suffered as we do and empathizes.

This gives us confidence. There is a confidence to approach one who has went through what we have. This kind of person is that select person who we run to for empathy. They are so refreshing even when we are in the midst of our pain. Run to Jesus in prayer, rest knowing he gets what you are faced with and is acting purposefully in your life. He knows you struggles and isn’t surprised at your frailty. He gets it.

Call on Jesus, thank him, receive his love and love him in prayer. There is nothing like a friend who understands us and cares, like the good friend you have coffee with.
