Bible Passage: Hebrews 4:14-16
We all get to the point at some point that God doesn’t understand us as Christians. We feel or think that God doesn’t know what we are going through. But this is far from the truth. God does not know what temptation is. Jesus lived as a human and was tempted in every way, every trial and hardship that we would ever face. There is nothing new to Him. Jesus has love and compassion towards us and sits on the right hand of God His father. We should come boldly to God to ask for help. The term boldly does not mean pride but assurance that your prayer will be heard.
Jesus knows grief all too well. In the book of John, we will read about Lazarus. We see that Lazarus was sick and they told Jesus of such. Jesus tarried longer and Lazarus died. If Jesus was there with him He would have healed him. We do not understand the will of God but in this case, it was to prove Jesus was who He was. Jesus saw the others grieving and then He felt the same grief and wept.
Jesus at one point got to the point as we do at times where He could pray. His body was weak and yet His groanings were heard by God above. In the Garden, while Jesus prayed it got to the point that He could no longer speak verbally.
Christians get in trouble a lot because we don’t take it to Jesus. We hold on to these things thinking we can do something about them because of pride. We usually turn around and then ask God, “Why me?”. All along it’s because we didn’t ask Him to begin with.
