Scripture:

Hebrews 4:16 – Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in the time of need.  
 
Observation:

Jesus, son of God, is our great high priest who is able to sympathize and understand our weakness as he also was a man. Jesus is God as the author tells us Jesus passed through the heavens in verse 14.  As a human, Jesus understands our temptation but was perfect and never sinned.  Therefore, as God who became the perfect man we are offered grace and mercy through Jesus.

Application:

I can confidently know Jesus understands my struggles and my needs.  God has offered me undeserving grace through the sacrifice Jesus made for me on the cross and He has already met my greatest need.  God wants to have a relationship with us all and we are reconciled to Him through Jesus.  I must continue to draw near to Jesus and he will be near to me to help in times of trouble.  Let me always be in prayer and praise Jesus for the grace and mercy he has given me.
 
Prayer:

Father,
Thank you for your love, grace and mercy you have given us through your son, Jesus.  Let me boldly draw near to you knowing you will be near to me and understand my needs.  May I praise you, share your love and serve you so all the glory is yours.
