He Will

Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin. Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

‭Hebrews‬ ‭4‬:‭14-16‬ NASB

Our high priest, our mediator, is Jesus, the Son of God. He’s been through all our temptations. He knows, understands, sympathizes with our weaknesses. This means we can trust Him to give us mercy and grace when we need them. So, don’t be afraid to ask, but ask with confidence, knowing He will provide.

Jesus knows our temptations, but He didn’t give in. Because of this and because of who He is, we can trust Him to give us mercy and grace.

When we’re tempted – and we will be – we need His mercy and grace. We can confidently approach Him, though He rules over all, and ask for mercy and grace when we need them. Believe that you can approach Him confidently when you’re in the middle of temptation. He knows your weakness already.
We can trust Him. He WILL do this.
