When you’re in over your head, who do you go to?
You go to someone you know personally, who is trustworthy, and who has a track record of being helpful.
One of the reasons we don’t open up to God and invite him into our most desperate places is because, perhaps, we don’t truly know his heart. We think he’s too distant, too abstract, too severe, or maybe even too apathetic.
This sermon titled is from October 17, 2021 and is based on Hebrews 4:14 – Hebrews 5:10.
I centre on verse 16 to help us better understand God’s heart and, therefore, how we can approach God’s throne of grace for help in our times of need. When you know God’s heart, you’re more likely to open yours.
