JESUS HAS FELT LIKE YOU DO - Max Lucado
"The next time your world goes from calm to chaos—ponder this: Jesus knows how you feel. His eyes have grown weary. His heart has grown heavy. He knows how you feel."
"You’re no doubt convinced Jesus is acquainted with sorrow and has wrestled with fear. Most people accept that. But can God relate to the hassles and headaches of your life? For some reason this is harder to believe."
"Listen to Hebrews 4:15, “. . .he Himself has shared fully in all our experience of temptation, except that He never sinned.” The writer of Hebrews anticipates our objections. God, it’s easy for you up there. You don’t know how hard it is from down here."
"Listen again. He has shared fully. Not nearly. Not to a large degree. But entirely! In all our experience. Every hurt. Every ache. Why? So that when you hurt, you’ll go to Him who knows how you feel!"
From Mike: Do you believe what Max writes with no reserve or is there still some doubt in your heart? What will it take to eliminate that doubt? More faith! How do I get that more faith? More study, prayer and trust. For many of us it's not easy. Just keep on keeping on!
