People will not always understand us, but Jesus will always understand us

Philippians 2:5-10(AMP)Let this same attitude and purpose and [humble] mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus: [Let Him be your example in humility:] Who, although being essentially one with God and in the form of God [[a]possessing the fullness of the attributes which make God God], did not [b]think this equality with God was a thing to be eagerly grasped [c]or retained, But stripped Himself [of all privileges and [d]rightful dignity], so as to assume the guise of a servant (slave), in that He became like men and was born a human being. And after He had appeared in human form, He abased and humbled Himself [still further] and carried His obedience to the extreme of death, even the death of the cross! Therefore [because He stooped so low] God has highly exalted Him and has [e]freely bestowed on Him the name that is above every name, 10 That in (at) the name of Jesus every knee [f]should (must) bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

God sent Jesus to become human flesh.  God knows our suffering.  Jesus came as flesh, surrendered His life to His Father, then He had pleasure.  He did not give up before He had pleasure.  Many time we give up to get rid of our fleshly pain before we see the pleasure and treasure of the outcome through endurance.

There is nothing about us that Jesus does not understand by experience.  He’s been rejected, abandoned, abused, and treated unfairly.  Jesus knows our pain.  We must believe that and that God lives inside of us and that He loves us.  God knows us and He knows our pain.  Any time we feel weary that is one thing we need to stop and remember.  God lives in us and He loves us every minute of every day.  People will not always understand us, but Jesus will always understand us.  Sometimes we don’t even understand ourselves but God understands us.

We all have weaknesses in our lives and it is time to focus on our strengths instead of our weaknesses.  We should be aware of our weaknesses, pray, repent, and ask God’s help for our weaknesses but we cannot let our weaknesses steal our joy.  Be happy where you are at.  God created you, loves you, and understands you the way you are.  Just keep moving forward with your relationship and don’t let guilt keep you from growing with God.  You can be convicted but don’t be condemned.  We have all made mistakes and likely will make many more.  The good news is Jesus accepts us the way we are because He understands what it is like to walk in our shoes.

Hebrews 4:15-16 (AMP) 15 For we do not have a High Priest Who is unable to understand and sympathize and have a shared feeling with our weaknesses and infirmities and liability to the assaults of temptation, but One Who has been tempted in every respect as we are, yet without sinning. 16 Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace (the throne of God’s unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need [appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we need it].

My true belief is that the best way to preach is by our actions and not our words. However, we need some daily inspiration to keep us on our path. We as Christians have a responsibility not to judge others by our words but to show the love of Christ by loving them where they are at on their personal journey in life...and if they never turn their life over to Christ, continue to love them for who they are - after all God does.

    Of course Jesus understands me. He is the potter I am the clay. Who knows the Masters work better than the master.

    May you be blessed with Jesus creating you into His master piece
