“During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, He offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the One who could save Him from death, and He was heard because of his reverent submission.” Hebrews 5:7-8

Don’t think you have to come to God all stoic and speaking like you’re reading out of the King James Bible with a lot of thous and thees, or that you have to pretend to have it all together. God doesn’t want pomp and circumstance, He wants your heart. He wants you.

It’s okay to come to Him when you’re depressed and crying or riddled with anxiety. In fact, it’s imperative that you do come to Him in those times. Jesus did.

But it is also possible, and even necessary, to keep an attitude of reverent submission at the same time.

Come into the Light with all your heart, keeping no secrets and leaving nothing behind. He is El Roi, the God who sees you. He already knows, He loves you, and He wants to heal you and grow you into spiritual maturity. He has plans for you and rewards for those who diligently seek Him. Don’t be afraid. Be excited!

Grace and Peace,
