15 For we have not a High Priest who is unable to feel for us in our weaknesses, but one who was tempted in every respect just as we are tempted, and yet did not sin.
16 Therefore let us come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our times of need.
In order to be helped by the doctor, the master, the one with a proven record of success and victory, there must be a willingness to let go of both achievements and failures of the past. Their insight will be of no effect as long as there is still a hold on past experience that is inhibiting bold and confident embracing of their expertise in the area of need. Belief in their track record must remove all hesitance in letting go. With an increased impression of where they've been and what they've done will grow boldness to access a free offer of unmerited help.
The purpose of separation from past dependencies is not to achieve something or move to a higher status of some kind. There is, though, this wonderful letting go of things that would lessen a confident approach to the Master and His proven success over weakness in the flesh. What He offers requires no victories to attain and is inhibited by no condemning failures. In the relinquished hold on them is a confident embrace of His unmerited power. In this amazing movement toward Him is the discovery of help in a Father embrace free of pre-requisite of any kind.
"Confidence and boldness increasingly displace insecurity every time I go to my place at the throne of grace where I’m understood, embraced, and helped in His presence.”
"I bless and honor You, my Father, for counsel that comforts and directs my soul in the night and throughout my days.”
Psalm 16:7, Isaiah 30:21
“I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength .”
"Christ is my light in the darkness and the shadow of death, guiding my feet to peace."
" The fear of God that secures my heart and directs my life is health to my flesh and strength to my bones.”
“His divine power has given me all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him.”
II Peter 1:3
