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
