“Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are – yet was without sin.” Hebrews 4:14,15.
Jesus was misunderstood by His family; betrayed by His friend; forsaken by His disciples; deserted by His supporters and crucified by the world. Jesus can sympathize with us as we go through life with all its challenges, disappointments, and human inadequacies. Not only does He understand but He is continuously praying for us and praying us through each circumstance.
Sympathy is good, but Jesus did more than that: He became weak so that we can be strong; He was cursed so that we can be blessed; He took our sickness so that we can be healed; He was bound so that we can be free; and He died so that we can have eternal life.
If that was not enough, He is always saving us; helping us; preserving us, and providing for us in times of crisis. “Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them. Hebrews 7:25.
Jesus is praying for you; believing with you; standing with you; and fighting for you. God is committed to your care, victory, and destiny. God is committed to you forever.
The Lord is my glory and lifter of my head.
