Our perfect high priest is available 24/7 and can sympathize with our struggles...

Main point summary
Because Jesus is our perfect confessor, we can boldly approach him to receive mercy and will timed grace.
Since then we have d a great high priest e who has passed through the heavens,
because we no longer confess to an earthly priest
Jesus, the Son of God,
but in instead Jesus who knows the beginning from the end
f let us hold fast our confession.
let us keep our confession of sin steady without wavering`
For we do not have a high priest g who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses,
in Jesus we have a priest that can show compassion in the places we are weak
but one who in every respect has been d tempted as we are, h yet without sin.
because here on earth he was tempted the same as we are, but he never gave in to temptation
i Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace,
so we can with come boldly to him
that we may receive mercy
for he is merciful
and find grace to help in time of need.
and his strength in trials is perfectly timed
this is unique, because the OT high priest was likely unable to sympathize with the sins of the common man given their privilege and perpetual location
his grace is perfectly timed, I need to remember this when it feels like He doesn't hear me
