If you feel like you are stuck in the centre of a maze, entangled, surrounded and unable to find a way out, today the Holy Spirit is providing a ladder for you. Even as you have faced dead-end after dead-end and sat down in defeat, know that this ladder from God is a route straight up and out. Game over, back on track!
He says to you, ‘You do not have to obey the rules of this maze, for it only wants to trap you and I offer you a way of freedom. I am giving you a ladder of opportunity to get out now, no-matter what it was that drew you into the maze. I do not condemn you to remain there, instead I reach down and make a way for you to come back out, into the light and the straight path, where you can see ahead’.
This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.
