Topic: Jesus Is Not Out Of Touch With Our Reality [TREM Devotional 18 March 2019]
“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”. –Hebrews 4:15 KJV
Child of God, we have a High Priest that is gone to heaven. We have a man that can identify with us. He is in heaven right now and his name is Jesus. He is there to tell the father I know what they are going through. Jesus knows what you are going through. He feels what you are feeling. He can identify with you because He sat where you are sitting.
There are some situations that you cannot express but the High Priest is in a position to explain better what you cannot articulate. He knows what it is to go without food and He knows what it is to be tried and tempted. He knows what it is to face challenges in life. The Bible says He was in all points tempted but He didn’t fall and because of it; He is our High Priest. He is saying to the Father on our behalf; I know what it is for the enemy to bombard their minds but they are holding fast. But he would not speak effectively on your behalf if you are not holding fast the promise of God.
The book of 2 Corinthians 4:8-10 says “We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed. Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body”. In other words, the enemy is buffeting us left, right and centre and trying to get us discouraged but we refuse to be discouraged because the more he is attacking us the more the life of God manifests in us. Don’t ever believe the devil or fall for his lies, God has a great plan for your life.
