Jesus Can Relate

In all our struggles Jesus can relate and sympathize with us.

We know Jesus suffered and died for us in order for us to be saved.

But let’s dig deeper. Jesus whole live was a struggle. He was born into poverty, worked a tough job as a carpenter, when He started His ministry, He was mocked and not believed by His own brothers and sisters. 

Jesus lived poor, homeless, relying on the Father to provide food and needs each day. He dealt with anger, selfishness, ungratefulness from people. People abandoned His ministry. He battled religious leaders of the day.

He dealt with many emotions, He got angry, He grieved, He got stressed. He faced temptation from the devil himself. And His life was threatened many times.

In the end one of His best friends betrayed Him and He was wrongfully accused, tortured and was killed.

Yet knowing all this was to come He stayed faithful and did all that He had to do.

So not only can He relate and sympathize with our problems, He can help you in your struggles. Truth is there is no one better to go to in your struggles because there is no one greater than God.

Isn’t it amazing that Jesus chose to do this? He was and will always be God but He chose to live this hard life and suffer for us even though He didn’t have to, even though at any point He could stop His suffering, His pain and struggles, He did it anyway.

What a great God we serve!

Pray always and go to the Bible for help. Remember the Bible is the Word of God but Jesus Himself is the Word.

So going to the Bible is going to Jesus. 

Immerse yourself in the Word and trust in Him, listen to Him, He will also listen to you.

He is with you in all your struggles and He will be there always until the end.

And after the end too.

Because when the race is over He will be there to tell you “well done my good and faithful servant.”

Have a Blessed Week,

Chris

Trust

Proverbs 3:5 ESV:

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.”

In all moments both good and bad we must trust in the Lord.

In your struggle, pain, heartache, anxiety and grief we must trust in Him.

When you feel overwhelmed by problems lay them at His feet in prayer.

We may not understand why something is happening but God knows why and He knows all things. He is with you through all things, He is with you to the end.

While we don’t know all like God, we do know what happens in the end.

At the end of our race, at the end of our life, we will be with the Lord eternally.

Knowing this we can trust in God and when we do so we find true joy and true peace.

Have a Blessed Week,
Chris

Bible Verses on Trusting God
https://www.openbible.info/topics/trusting_god

Times of Struggle

God is not going to make life perfect for us on this Earth. We are going to go through struggles, pain, suffering and loss. The key is to continue to trust in him. Things always work out well in the end. Remember this life is a blink of  an eye compared to entirety with the Lord. John 15:18-19 If the world hates you, understand that it hated Me first. If you were of the world, it would love you as its own. Instead, the world hates you, because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world.”

Remember to continue to do Gods Work during your time here. Always trust in him during your times of struggle, in the end you will be at peace.

God Bless You All
