Pain-Tuesday Truth

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Hebrews 4:15 NIV

God understands our pain. Initially that might not seem like much, but it's a big deal. Pain is inevitable. As much as we want to wipe away all pain in this life, suffering remains unavoidable. In the midst of our hurt what can make it seem eternally worse is feeling alone and feeling as if no one understands us. Have you ever felt like that? One of the worse things a person can endure is to hear someone say, "I know how you feel" and you know they really have no idea what you're going through. The person may mean well. They may love us and care about us, but they do not understand our pain. Sometimes we just need someone to understand. God always understands our problems and He empathizes with us.

Never forget that Christ was a real person who lived a real life on the Earth. He had some good days and some bad days. He knows what it's like to be lied on and disrespected. He understands how it feels to lose loved ones and family members. Jesus definitely knows how it feels to be left alone and abandoned. The God we serve is not some far away deity, but a loving God who can relate to Your problems. Not only does God love you, He is concerned about you and...

Jesus understands your pain. You are not alone!
