That is why we have a great High Priest who has gone to heaven, Jesus, the Son of God. Let us cling to him and never stop trusting him. This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same temptations 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. (Heb 4:14-16 NLT)
Prayer: LORD, it is difficult to comprehend that You really understand the pain, rejection, discouragement, and other things with which I struggle. Help me accept this and learn to see You not just as God and Lord but also as my friend, companion, helper, confidant, encourager–and One who cares about the bad days as well as the good and as much about my life now as about my life hereafter. Thank You for caring. Help me believe it. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
