This post is kind of a continuation of my last post. Last night, during the discussion, my friend said something that I found myself musing about. She said, “God understands everything that we experience.” I didn’t think much about that statement when it was made because at that point I kept thinking about how lonely I felt and how people always seemed to want something from me but never truly need me.
As I was walking to work this morning, God reminded me of something. He reminded me that He has experienced that feeling for thousands of years! When Jesus was on earth, people flocked to Him, not because they needed Him for Him but because they wanted what He could give them. The healings, the fish and bread, etc. These were the same people who yelled that He be crucified!! The same ones He had helped and who had followed Him around daily for some reason or another, wanted Him dead for no reason at all.
Even today, He is not sought for Him. Many of us seek Him for the house that He will bless us with, the car, the husband, the healing, the job, the education, the material things…. Even I on occasions have been guilty of seeking Him for the wrong reasons. Some of us are still the same ones who deny and crucify Him afresh with our actions, words and deeds.
I was again awed and amazed. He truly understood what I had been feeling. He had already been touched with the feelings of my infirmities.
As I am writing this, the Lord reminded me of one more thing. He reminded me of my daily Bible reading for Sunday (I didn’t read it until Monday):
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.
With that reminder, my Father, had already reassured me before I even realized that I needed reassurance. He had already comforted me before I realized I needed comfort. God truly does understands and have your back. My Father, Daddy Jesus, cares.
