There is a savior that I could turn to because this savior knows exactly how I feel. Hebrew 4:15 “This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin.” (NLT) This affirms that Jesus knows exactly how it feels. For He understands what it means to wear handcuffs, as He to was bound. He knows how it feels to be mistreated within the confines of a justices system, As they spat on Him and beat him in His confinement. There is comfort in knowing that you are not alone in your situation. No matter what you are going through God knows your pain. Have you been abandon by family and friends? He knows the feeling of abandonment as His 12 best friends fled as he was taken into custody. No explanation needed, no need to justify your actions Jesus stand in the gap just for you. Our situation may limit us in the things can do. It may even limit our access to much-needed resources. However, there is no situation that can limit our access to God. There was a calming peace in kneeling before the God of the universe and letting our petitions be known.
God will meet us where we are! In our anger, He is there to provide peace. In our sadness, He is there to provide us with joy. In our weakness, He tell us that His grace is sufficient. We have a wide range of emotional place that we can find ourselves, many times we find ourselves trying to fix it ourselves; we may self-medicate to ease our pain, our anxieties. This is the million dollar question if we put down the pills and the can of beer or the wine bottle and allow God to meet us where we are right at this moment? The God of Moses who made a way out of no way for His people in the wilderness. The God of David who allowed time for David to rest while being surrounded by his enemies. The same God of yesteryear is waiting to meet you where you are today. Have you tried God?
