Leaving with uncertainty, uncertainty that can hurt. Simply not having something real and true to hold onto can leave so much room for fear. And I give into fear and am reminded that I am a mess who renounced the secure hope He offers for my feeble fears, turned my back on Him to entertain my worries. And He reminds me that I stand before Him again though all unworthy, I’m made worthy. He already bore the temptation of fears just like this, and performed the righteousness that I needed to go on my record for this time. He’s already destroyed the dominion of these fears, and simply because of knowing this, His grace and mercy in this, how is it possible for me to choose fear if I abide in the knowledge that a God of such Love has called me to live in such great grace.
Therefore he had to be made like his brothers in every respect, so that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in the service of God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.For because he himself has suffered when tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted. – Hebrews 2:17-18
How can we who died to sin still live in it? Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. – Romans 6:2-4
