Life can be extremely difficult at times. We often seek guidance or advice from parents, friends, neighbors and acquaintances. When these people cannot solve are troubles we tend to feel withdrawn or depressed.

There is a solution and His name is Jesus. Jesus had more troubles then every person who ever lived combined! He gave his life as a ransom for us and paid our sin debt in full. He did this without any complaints or anger toward us. The reason he did this?

Jesus infinite unconditional love for all mankind is the reason he took on our sin. Anger, despair, worrying, depression, illness, remorse, sadness – the list goes on and on. From the moment you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior you received His Spirit. You now possess an advocate who fully understands you. He has given you a clean slate and the ability to resist all temptation.

Jesus wants to take all your worries, problems and troubles and solve them for you. How do I know this? Trust me, I used to tackle these negative and draining issues by myself and suffered the consequences. Then I realized that Jesus said, “Come to Me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest”. Matthew 11:28

This is how God speaks to us and the only way you can hear his voice is by reading the Word (Bible). The Bible is God’s voice, His mind, His answers to our problems, His Wisdom, His understanding of our lives, His Knowledge, His Power – all through Jesus, His Son!

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet was without sin. Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in our time of need. (Hebrews 4:15, 16)

The Throne of Grace is God’s headquarters in heaven and inside the Throne Room, where the Angels and Elders sing perpetually to God, is where are prayers are answered by the author of Grace, Jesus!
