Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Support groups for various types of struggles in life are very helpful in providing comfort and healing. Because all the members of the group have personally experienced what the others are going through, they often support one another with much empathy and understanding.
Likewise, as followers of Jesus, we all share common struggles with temptations, pain, worries, and disappointments. As a body of Christ, we can support one another through these struggles. Even better, we have a savior who, not only knows our struggles, but has experienced them Himself while on earth. We can bring our troubles and concerns to Him knowing that He truly understands our temptation and weaknesses (Hebrews 4:15). This allows us to have a confident, honest, and open dialogue with our Savior (Hebrews 4:16).
Have an honest conversation with Jesus about an area of struggle. Experience His Empathy.
