TOPIC: The Lord Is In Touch With Our Reality
SCRIPTURE: “For we have not a 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)
TREM Daily Devotional 17 May 2022 MESSAGE
Jesus Christ, our High Priest is always touched with the feeling of our infirmities. And, that is why He always makes intercessions for you. He is at the right hand of the Majesty on High and every time you cry, He knows. Every time you are passing through pains, He knows because that is His assignment as your high priest. He stays there to take note of your challenges and He tells the Father: “I paid for that. I paid for this condition. I paid 100% price and I have taken it away” He perfects your situation in the presence of the Father.
God, the Father sees your imperfection and your challenges through the eye of Jesus because when it passes through the hand of Jesus it becomes perfect. Even your mistakes, your inadequacies, your weaknesses, and your shortcomings are seen by God as perfect when they pass through Jesus.
Jesus is not dormant or docile and waiting for you to die in your situation. Even when He is silent, He is still speaking on your behalf. The beautiful thing is that He knows every one of us one by one. For instance, in a crowd, He knows you personally. No one knows you perfectly as He does. No one can know your mistakes and the condition that you are in and still say “I love you.”
You know some people when they find certain weaknesses about you, they will begin to be careful about you. But Jesus knows all your flaws and mistakes. And, despite it all, He still says “I love you.” So, don’t ever for one moment think that heaven has abandoned you when you are passing through challenges.
He has said: “I will never leave you nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5). It is a double negative! The Greek word translated there indicates that ‘God will never, never, never, ever forsake you. God is with you always! You are never alone. No matter the situation you are going through, He is always there. And He is always there to ensure that the end will be good.
