Crazy morning at my house. I was looking for a past post to repost and this one came into view. I thought it was highly appropriate for today!
Hebrews 4:15,16 – “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are – yet was without sin. Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”
If you worked as hard at your job as you do your relationship with Christ, how far would you get in your career?
A serious question to ponder. For most of us, we feel we have to schedule a relationship with Christ into our already full life. But how full is it really? If your like me, “stuff” keeps you busy. Why, just this morning I was having a time trying to find the verse I wanted for this blog post. The devil kept coming up with “one more thing” that I thought I just HAD to do. Guess what? Those things are waiting. I am choosing to be obedient.
But all too often “stuff” gets in the way of our desire to walk closer to our Savior. Jesus understands. Now, does that give us a “get out of jail free” card? Nope. He also knows that we make time for that which is important to us. He wants to be important to us.
He has been there and done that. He knows the struggles we face. He knows those “sins that so easily beset us.”
So make time to develop that relationship. If you have to, schedule into your busy schedule time to read His Word and talk to Him. But, don’t forget to be quiet and listen as well. He has a lot to say if we will hush up!
Go to Him today, princess. And receive the mercy and grace you are in desperate need of. The King is waiting.
