God knows...

It's the start of the new week, works are piling up, stress is building up full steam ahead...I learn one thing new this week, apart from looking away from our flesh to the complete work of the Christ on the cross, the Lord says He knows our stress...

Jesus is Himself. Not an angel. Not an ambassador. Not an emissary, but Jesus himself! Shared fully. Not partially. Not nearly. Not to a large degree. Entirely! Jesus shared fully. In all our experience. Every hurt. Each ache. All the stresses & all the strains. No exceptions. No substitutes. Why? So Jesus could sympathize with our weaknesses...

Jesus knows how you feel. From the wake to the factory to the frustration of a demanding schedule. Jesus understands. When you tell God you've reached your limit, He knows what you mean. When you shake your head at impossible deadlines, He shakes His, too. When your plans are interrupted by people who have other plans, He nods in empathy. He has been there. He knows how you feel...

Jesus knows how you feel. You're under the gun at work? Jesus knows how you feel. You've got more to do than is humanly possible? So did He. You've got children who makes a 'piranha hour' out of your dinner house? Jesus knows what that's like. People take more from you than they give? Jesus understands. Your teenagers won't listen? Your students won't try? Your employees give you blank stares when you assign tasks? Believe me, friend, Jesus knows how you feel...

The story of God who became human, sounds familiar? Jesus did! So that you & I would believe that the Healer knows our hurts, He voluntarily became one of us. He placed himself in our position. He suffered our pains & felt our fears...

Rejection? Jesus felt it. Temptation? Jesus knew it. Loneliness? Jesus experienced it. Death? He tasted it. And stress? He could write the best selling book about it! Why did He do it? One reason. So that when you hurt, you will go to Him - your Father & your Physician & let Him heal!

You are precious to Jesus. So precious that He became like you so that you would come to Him. When you struggle, Jesus listens. When you yearn, He responds. When you question, He hears them...Jesus battles with hell itself to protect you...

For in Luke 1:37 [Amplified Bible] it says, "For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment." Hang in there, Jesus knows...

Our God is love.
No greater love is there than to lay down ones life for another.
Jesus did that.

Sorry I haven't been around much lately.

May the Lord bless you.

Rulan said...

godwyn, how are you?
I've not seen you around for awhile and have missed you.

May the Lord fill your life with His presence and His arms circle you with His peace. May the light of God's love and grace bring warmth and blessing to each day.

God bless.

Yes, Jesus knows everything!

I'm back to blogging after many days of exhaustion due to house relocation. Hope everything is fine with you!

Greater is He that is in us than He that is in the world. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?

Jesus is with you!

Godwyn Lim said...

Hi PIA,

I am recovering, hope to start writing & surf soon, been too busy with work, then fell ill...

Thank you for your concern, really appreciate your thoughts!

May the Lord keep you & bless you!

Godwyn Lim said...

Sister Audrey,

I will check out your 'tag' thingy soon. I am down with gastric flu & ulcers in the throat that boils me down with fever & pain...

Yet, I know I am healed in Jesus name, not trying to be...think Father in Heaven knows I should have the wisdom to think of rest as well, not just work...

Have a good week ahead!

Godwyn Lim said...

Hey Sister prayer warrior,

I haven't been actively blogging or surfing for the past few weeks as well, was busy & just fell really sick...

It's good to hear from you again! Praise the Lord all is well for you! God speed...
