I know how you feel

 By Trevor Bradley

Hebrews 4 vs 15 “For we do not have a high priest( the one who stands before the Father on our behalf) who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who has been tempted in ALL THINGS as we are, yet without sin”..

That’s a huge verse…  For whatever you and I have gone through..what we are going through…what we will go through…HE KNOWS HOW WE FEEL..

Deserted by friends… been there
Knew what it was like to suffer hunger… been there
Felt the pain/sorrow of the untimely death of a friend… been there
Betrayal… been there
His life being threatened constantly… been there
Ridiculed, scoffed, laughed at… been there
Rejection by his family…called a madman… been there
Had his heart broken..he cried over Jerusalem… been there
Look at Jesus life and you will see that He could safely have the words spoken about Him, written here in Hebrews 4 vs 15.

But more than that, He also “sees you”…in fact His eye is constantly on you, never leaves you for a minute.
Hear Psalm 33 vs 18 “Behold the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him..on those who hope for His loving kindness”  How awesome, how comforting.  His name speaks of this – EL ROI, the GOD who sees me- Wow..every minute detail is before Him and He carefully watches over us as a loving Father.

May we realise that afresh this day, this week.  He knows how we feel and we are NEVER ALONE!!!  Psalm 33 vs 21 & 22 ” Our heart rejoices in HIM because we trust in HIS holy name…and our hope is in HIM”
