We do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who in every respect has been tested as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:15-16
I've been bathing in these verses this morning. I find myself facing a lot of weaknesses, unable to ignore or deny them these days. It is good to know that He understands. Better yet is the message that although I want to hide and don't feel adequate to come to God, He invites me to approach His throne, a throne of grace and not judgment, with boldness. It is there that I will find what I'm looking for in this time of need-- the mercy and grace I don't feel like I can give myself these days.
