Hebrews 4 vs 14-16 : Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are – yet he did not sin.
Recently, we were watching an action packed thriller movie on DSTV. As we are in the midst of Cape Town winter that brings loads of rain, the DSTV connection went out just minutes from the end of our movie due to yet another rain storm! The only thing we were able to view was not the end of the movie but the words on the screen that read: “the decoder is attempting to re-establish connection.”
Well, needless to say, the rain storm continued, and we didn’t get to enjoy the movie ending. We felt frustrated and unfulfilled.
Transitioning to our spiritual lives, do you feel disconnected to God? Do you feel frustrated and unfulfilled in your walk with the LORD? Well, good news abounds. “we can approach the throne of grace with confidence, so we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” (Hebrews 4:16)
So what is the cure to feeling disconnected to the Lord due to the storms of life?
We can have the absolute confidence that when we pray through Jesus to the Father we trust that He hears us and cares for every one of our physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. I encourage you to take some time to call out to the LORD. His mercy and grace are yours because of who you are “in Christ.” And then share this good news of mercy and grace with a family member, friend, neighbor or co-worker.
Jesus is able to sympathize with every single one of our weaknesses!
