For since he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are tempted.
There is a tendency to think that when you go through something rough, no one else understands. It’s easy to isolate yourself and feel sorry for your sorry lot in life.
But you are not alone in your trouble. You are not alone in your suffering. Jesus knows exactly what you are going through.
And He died so that your lot in life won’t be the end all, be all of your time on this Earth.
He died for you so that you can have eternal life. So you can be with Him in Heaven for all eternity.
There, you won’t have a miserable lot in life. You won’t struggle. You won’t hurt. Heaven is the most perfect place. Nothing on Earth can remotely compare.
When you’re struggling, do you think about Heaven or does your struggle speak louder than what Jesus has prepared for you?
This life is a preparation for the life to come. Are you prepared?
Many people are not. Many people don’t know what the Word of God says. Many don’t spend time with the Lord.
They let this world speak louder than the things of God. Why?
Adjust your life to Jesus. Take out the junk that you allow and replace it with the Bible, prayer, church and Christian friends.
Jesus has done His part. It’s time for you to do yours.
Lord, I desire all that You have for me. Help me to adjust my life to You.
