Students, here is today’s devotional from our Bible Study this week:
Read Hebrews 4:15-16. About whom are these verses written? In the time when the Bible was written, a high priest would act as a liaison between the people and God. How would it feel to depend on another human being for your relationship with God? Would you feel confident in this system? Why or why not?
How does Jesus serve as your high priest?
Because of Christ’s death, believers have a direct line of communication with God. He understands all your weaknesses and He promises to meet you where you are and give you what you need. So you can, and should, come to Him confidently, expecting Him to meet with you and reveal Himself to you.
Describe a time in your life when you approached God and He came through for you. Thank Him for being faithful to you.
God promises to listen to you when you pray and to reveal Himself to you when you seek Him humbly and with your whole heart (Check out Jeremiah 29:12-13 for this promise). With that in mind, ask Him to help you approach Him with confidence in your quiet time. He hears you!
