If you are feeling weakened by temptations (or sin) in any areas of your life, here is some good news for you. Jesus Christ, our High Priest, empathizes with all of our weaknesses (Hebrews 4:14).
Our King has ascended into heaven and is now seated at the right hand of God and is a constant reminder to God concerning our salvation (deliverance).
Saints, it is imperative that we read the Word and confess the promises about who we are.
The bible clearly tells us that the word of faith is near us, in our mouths and hearts (Romans 10:8). The Word also states, “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10:9-10).
Your daily confessions should be that Jesus is the Son of God, the One who died for our sins, and is our Savior. Furthermore, you can rejoice because the Bible says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame” and that whoever calls on the name of Jesus will be saved (Romans 10: 11 & 13)!
Now, after confessing, believing, and living a lifestyle that is pleasing to God, you need to understand that Jesus is in heaven empathizing (sympathizing) with all of your struggles.
Knowing that Christ has compassion for us and was tempted on every level but did not sin, we can go to God’s throne of grace with confidence (Hebrews 4:15-16)!
Jesus gives us access to the throne room of God. Why? Because there is a fountain of mercy and grace in God’s presence. If God sent His Son to die for us while we were still sinners who made no commitment to God, don’t you think He will bless us even more after we have accepted salvation?
Therefore, when you are feeling weakened by temptation (or sin), pride, guilt, shame, fear, lust, hatred, rebellion, doubt, rage, and other carnalities, remember that you can approach God’s throne of grace (favor, love, and power) with boldness and you will obtain mercy and grace to help you in your time of need (Hebrews 4:14-16).
God's eyes are on you!
