“Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.”
He knows how we feel, because He experienced our pain. He was touched with the feeling of our infirmities. Every feeling that we feel, Jesus felt.
Those times when we feel like we are alone and no one understands the feeling of what we are going through… Jesus does.
“Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”
In the dark of night the devil can begin to convince us that no one has ever dealt with the same set as circumstances, and that no one even cares what we are going through. He is the father of all lies for a reason; there is no truth in him. Resist the devil as he tells you no one understands…Jesus does.
We can not only take comfort in the fact that Jesus knows the feeling of each and every thing that we face now, but also everything we will face in the future. He “was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.”
Whatever you feel today…Jesus knows the feeling. He felt it, but He remained the sinless Lamb of God. May we strive to be like Him more with each passing day.
