‘…He faced all of the same testings we do…’ Hebrews 4:15 NLT

The Lord understands what you are going through today because He has been where you are. The Bible says: ‘This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do…So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.’ (Hebrews 4:15-16 NLT) That means: (1) Jesus understands your family problems He had a family of His own. And on one occasion they said, ‘…He’s out of His mind…’ (Mark 3:21 NLT) (2) Jesus understands when you feel overwhelmed ‘Then Jesus said, "Let’s go off by ourselves to a quiet place and rest awhile." He said this because there were so many people coming and going that Jesus and His apostles didn’t even have time to eat.’ (Mark 6:31 NLT) Jesus not only dealt with onthejob pressures, He had to organise, train and correct His own followers, including a group of uneducated fishermen, a bigot, and a despised tax collector. (3) Jesus understands when you feel rejected The town He grew up in had no use for Him: ‘He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him.’ (John 1:11 NKJV) When Philip said, ‘We have found the one whom Moses wrote about… He is Jesus…from Nazareth,’ Nathaniel replied, ‘Can anything good come from Nazareth?'(John 1:45 GNT) And Jesus’ family tree was nothing to write home about either. Rahab was a prostitute, Jacob was a crook, David was an adulterer – to name just a few. Yes, Jesus understands. He knows where you’re at today and He’s able to help you. So talk to Him!
