Hebrews 4:15-16 (KJV) For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us, therefore, come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
Chinelo was going through a lot. Her husband was behaving badly, her children were unruly, and her boss was overbearing. Her car was now misbehaving, and Chinelo started feeling overwhelmed. At some point, she burst into tears because of how frustrated she felt. “I need to speak to someone,” she said frantically. She called her mother and had a long conversation with her. While discussing with her mother, at some point, she started crying. After discussing her challenges with her mother for about one hour, she felt truly relieved. Her mother gave her good counsel, prayed with her, and encouraged her. After this, Chinelo felt revived and strengthened. She was now able to face life triumphantly.
Do you know that by faith, you can have a conversation with the Lord Jesus as you would a counselor or therapist? The difference is that the Lord Jesus can help you in ways no therapist can, and He loves you the way no one does. In 1 Peter 5:7, we learn that the Lord expects us to cast our cares upon Him because He cares for us. One of the most effective ways of doing this is to literally tell the Lord how it hurts and open up about your wounds of betrayals, fears, and insecurities. Know that when you talk to the Lord, He hears you.
Go into today remembering that you have an ally in heaven called Jesus Christ. He is the most important person in the universe and He is on your side.
