Christ Understands Your Struggles

Posted on

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

Whatever we are going through in this life, the Lord understands and desires to give us his love, wisdom, and strength to help us. We can always depend on the Lord and his divine power in us. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us. (Ephesians 3:20) The Lord’s power will work within us and carry us through life’s struggles.

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10 ESV) The Lord promises to help his followers and to strengthen us. The Lord is pleased when our faith depends on Him because it shows that we know him.

But now, this is what the Lord says…” Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.” (Isaiah 43:1) It’s comforting to know we belong to the Lord, living in his family.  He knows everything about us, and he desires to walk with us through life guiding us with His love and power.  He gives us whatever we need to get through whatever we face. We can always trust the Lord! The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22-23 ESV) The Lord loves us and helps us as we go through struggles, and he is always faithful to his promises.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6) Our faith is based on trusting His ways, knowing they are always perfect and for our good.  We may look for immediate results, but the Lord’s goal is to increase our faith and our closeness to him.  He tests us to walk in obedience to his will as he guides us through our struggles.

Trust the Lord and know he will help you through life, especially when you are going through struggles. We may be uncomfortable waiting for the Lord, but when we endure, we are thankful and we praise the Lord. But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31 ESV) This verse reveals our attitude while we wait on the Lord.

Today, depend on the Lord because he is waiting for you to call him for his divine help. Christ loves you perfectly and he desires to guide you through life and set you free from the world.

Prayer: Thank you for understanding my struggles and for your desire to guide me through life. Lord, help me to always have faith that depends on you.  In Jesus’ name, Amen
