Our family always enjoys watching A Christmas Story. When poor Ralphie is all worried about getting a BB gun for Christmas, Ralphie’s dad tells him not to worry because “Santa knows, he always knows.”

We all need someone to know.

Now on one of those days….  Luke 8:22

Have you ever had one of those days? Smooth sailing and then all of a sudden, out of nowhere, a fierce gale of wind descends.  You feel swamped and you know you’re in danger.  Luke 8:22-25

Or maybe it hasn’t been smooth sailing for a long time.  Maybe you’ve been struggling with something for days, months, even years.  And you can’t find an answer.  You’re no further along today than when it all started.  Luke 8:43-48

Take courage, whatever your situation may be.  Jesus knows.  He always knows.

..the woman saw that she had not escaped notice…  Luke 8:47

…there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.  Hebrews 4:13

Hebrews 4:13 is meant to be a verse of comfort, a verse that helps us find rest in the middle of a storm,  a verse that emboldens our faith, a verse that gives us confidence to draw near to His throne of grace so that we can receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.  Hebrews 4:16


So today draw near to Him and do so boldly.

Find grace to help you in your time of need.

He knows . He understands.  Hebrews 4:15
