For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham’s descendants. For this reason he had to be made like his brothers in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people. Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted. (Heb 2:16-18 NIV)
Prayer: LORD, when no one seems to understand or even care about the struggles I endure, help me remember that You suffered as we suffer. You became one of us. You felt what we feel and You understand. When no one else cares, I can be encouraged that You do. Thank You for loving, thank You for caring, and thank You for the atonement sacrifice of Your life for mine. You became like me so that I could become like You. I want to be so more every day. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
