Since he himself has gone through suffering and testing, he is able to help us when we are being tested.
Hebrews 2:18 (NLT)
We are human. Trials, temptations and tribulations are part of our journey. But we also know Jesus. It was God’s plan from the beginning that He would create human beings with our propensity for sin and struggles and at the same time endow us with His grace. Paul writes, “I have discovered this principle of life—that when I want to do what is right, I inevitably do what is wrong. I love God’s law with all my heart. But there is another power within me that is at war with my mind. This power makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death? Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord.” Jesus is the answer to our sinful dilemma. The author of Hebrews states why this is true. He writes, “This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.” What is it that has you down today? What sins are you struggling with? What negative feelings are you harboring about yourself? Today, bring them to Jesus. He is there. He loves you. He will help.
Dear gracious Jesus. Thank You for Your grace. Thank You for Your love. I come boldly to You today for Your help. I repent of my sinfulness and ask for Your intervention. Be merciful to me I pray.
