Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
The Holy Scriptures are the word of God. When God sets it home by his Spirit, it convinces powerfully, converts powerfully, and comforts powerfully. It makes a soul that has long been proud, to be humble; and a perverse spirit, to be meek and obedient.
Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power.
The work Jesus did was in accordance with the needs of man in that age. His task was to redeem humanity, to forgive them their sins, and so His disposition was wholly one of humility, patience, love, piety, forbearance, mercy, and loving kindness. He blessed humanity richly and brought them grace in abundance, and all the things that they could possibly enjoy, He gave them for their enjoyment: peace and happiness, His tolerance and love, His mercy and loving kindness.
But now, we are lacking in faith and the ability to differentiate things and we are always unable to understand God’s words and His intentions.
Well!! do not be discouraged, do not be weak, God will make things clear for you. The road to the kingdom is not smooth; nothing is simple! You want blessings to come to you easily.
Today, everyone will have bitter trials to face. Without such trials, the loving heart you have for God will not grow stronger and you will not have true love for Him. Even if these trials consist merely of minor circumstances, everyone must pass through them; it is just that the difficulty of the trials will vary from one person to another. Trials are a blessing from God. Many of us come often before Him and beg on our knees for His blessings. We always think that a few auspicious words count as His blessing, yet we do not recognize that bitterness is one of His blessings.
In a year 2020 and 2021 where we have experienced a great deal of suffering and death, it is likely that we can relate to the trials. Our faith may be weary, weak, and shaken. The COVID-19 pandemic unveiled the pandemic of health and wealth inequalities, racism, and sexism.
The book of Hebrews encourages us to remember that in our difficult times, tie a knot and hold on. Hold on to the confession with faith. The risen Christ is the assurance of this faith. If it is the confession of our faith that makes us Christians, we should consider what it means to be called this name, take on this title? For one, it means that we have inherited a name that is, above all names, a more excellent name.
God’s grace is revealed like a father to his children, He really wants what is best for us. The word of God does not say that “Okay, I am going to wreck your life, I’m going to take away all your fun because I can do it because I’m the authority. The word of God is about, God who says, “I want you right here, right now, to know the best that life can be for you because I love you, I want what’s best for you.”
The Bible teaches us another thing, that the best things that we need, we cannot earn; they are God’s gifts to us. You cannot earn the wisdom; you cannot deserve the beauty of what you learn from the Gospel. It is dropped down on us because it is from the God of awesome mercy.

Those who share in God’s bitterness will certainly share in His sweetness. That is His promise and His blessing to us.
God has always declared man’s rest to be in him, and his love to be the only real happiness of the soul; and faith in his promises, through his Son, to be the only way of entering that rest.
But those who do not believe, shall never enter into this spiritual
Jesus died in our place so we could have a relationship with God and be with Him forever……. Amen
