For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted. Hebrews 2:18 New King James Version
When you are tempted no matter how big or small take it to Jesus.
He himself has suffered temptation.
Think about how hungry He must have felt after fasting that long yet He had the power to resist temptation. Although He was, is and always will be God immortal, He was also human so He understands your temptation.
Have you been betrayed by someone close to you and it cuts you close to the bone?
He Himself has suffered betrayal.
Think of how Jesus felt when He was betrayed by both Judas and Peter? Think how much that must have pierced His loving heart?
Are you being mocked and deserted by family and friends since coming to Christ?
He Himself has suffered rejection.
Think how Jesus felt when His brothers mocked Him in front of crowds of other folks? Do you not believe that cut deep?
Has a loved one recently passed on to the other side?
He Himself has suffered loss.
Think of how Jesus felt when He saw all that sorrow and intense grief at Lazarus’ grave? Do you not think that weighed heavy on His heart? Are wicked characters viciously gossiping about you, slandering you and unfairly criticizing you?
He Himself has suffered the venom of sneaky snakes. Think about how Jesus was constantly attacked, criticized and demonized by the Pharisee’s (who should have known better)?
Are you being treated unfairly for doing what is right?
He Himself has suffered injustice.
Think of how Jesus was brought unfairly to a kangaroo court that had already determined His death sentence before He even walked into the court room.
Think of how Jesus felt when He hung on that cross for all of us through out time?
You are afraid, think of how Jesus felt when in the garden before His trial, beating and excruciating death.
No matter what you are going through, you can always take it to Jesus because He has been there, He has been through it.
We can always take it all to Jesus, He has been there, He cares. Joseph- Anthony: Green
Prayer: Thank you Jesus-Shammah (The Lord is Present) for blessing me with Your comforting, strengthening assuring presence and for enduring all the pain that we experience so as to understand what we are going through. I exalt You in Your loving name. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
