God Understands it All

Reading for the day: John 3:16-17

“For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.”

It may seem at times that you are all alone in your agony. Friends and family just don’t seem to “get it.” Have you considered God?

He knows all about this world we live in and the pressures and problems we face. Because the world is not perfect, living in it is a challenge. That is why God sent Jesus to show us how to live at peace with and have victory in the here and now. Being an all-knowing God, He knew the outcome of sending his Son to live among a fallen generation. And, He sent him anyway.

Jesus lived as we live: He grew from a baby, living with parents who were not the wealthiest people around. He had to live with brothers and sisters and you know how that can be. He dealt with prejudice, disease, despair, hunger, death and heartache. It sounds like many of the issues that we deal with in our lives.

Jesus knew firsthand what type of toll these situations and others could have on the mind and the body. Through his connection with God, he faced them through prayer and time alone with Him. His life serves as an example of how we are to live in the world today. Yes, Jesus lived on earth over 2,000 years ago but human nature has not changed in all that time. Despair is still despair.

God knows intimately what you go through on a daily basis. He is there at every turn just waiting for you to seek His love and guidance. He gave His Son for the chance to hear and help you. He loves you that much.

Prayer Suggestion: Pray that God will share His wisdom with you and bring peace in difficult times.
