JESUS KNOWS HOW WE FEEL

July 18:2018

For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. 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 4:15 (NKJV)

`

What are those things that we want to hide from the rest of the world? Those things that make us want to hide from God’s presence? Where can we hide?

Sometimes, issues, problems, sin, or guilt can make us feel awkward. We wonder if God is aware of what we are going through and if He can truly help us get out of that situation.

The good news is that He can! He knows our frailties. Jesus walked the earth for thirty-three years and the Bible says that He was at all points tempted, though He never succumbed to temptation. This makes it easy for Him to understand what we go through daily.

Temptations will come to all of us, but we must take courage in the fact that we have a High Priest who knows what we are going through. He needs us to come boldly to the throne in those times of need and obtain the help that the Holy Spirit will provide for us.

Beloved, always look unto Jesus. He knows how we feel because He was faced with like temptations and demands of the flesh. Do not hide from God's presence; come boldly before the throne of grace and obtain the help you need.
