My God knows grief and loss. My God knows pain, hunger, and loneliness. My God knows anger, frustration, and desperation.
My God knows the value of friendship.
My God knows family struggles.
My God knows joy and laughter.
My God knows patience and kindness.
My God knows empathy and love.
As a matter of fact, we don’t face a single struggle that God hasn’t also faced. He’s given us all we need to overcome! I can take my heartache to Him and he understands, more deeply than any earthly friend. I don’t have to carry my burdens alone and neither do you.
Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
