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 – Hebrews, Chapter 4, verses 15 & 16 (NIV).
God understands what we are passing through. His Son, Jesus our High Priest, walked in our shoes during His earthly ministry and experienced the same temptations and difficulties we are facing. He knows how to bring us out triumphantly.Jesus walked in our shoes during His earthly ministry. So He understands our troubles. Click To Tweet
There may be people and places where help may purportedly be got from, but many of them are offering Greek gifts that further ensnare people and lead to their destruction. So, take that problem to Jesus today. More mercy and grace than your situation demands will be released to you so that you will not only overcome your challenge, you’ll be able to assist others in theirs.
But before you can do this during life’s storms and be assured of the results our theme scriptures above promise, you need to acknowledge that you are a sinner, repent and accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour if you haven’t done so. The Bible reminds us that God is not deaf or powerless to help us but our sins have separated us from Him such that He does not answer when we call – (Isaiah 59:1 & 2).Repent and make Jesus your Lord and Saviour to receive bold access to God.

The only way to bridge the gap created between us and God by sin is by receiving cleansing through the blood of Jesus. In his first epistle, the apostle Peter declares as follows:
“knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot” – 1 Peter 1:18 & 19 (ESV).Come boldly to God during life's storms and He will bring you peace and comfort.

Surrender your life to the Lord Jesus today and come confidently to God when the billows rage. He will respond and you will know that He is indeed a faithful Father and God.
Amen in Jesus’ name.
