Hebrews 4:15 – For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin.
Well intentioned friends say, “I know how you feel,” but deep down we think, NO – you really don’t. However, Jesus truly does! He was tempted in all things as we are. Therefore, Jesus can present our feelings to God, and He does on our behalf.
When we pray in Jesus’ name, pouring out our heart to God, Jesus acts as our attorney and says to the Father; “I know what they are feeling. I know what it’s like to be under pressure to sing. I stand with this child of yours who needs your help Father.” Sometimes it’s easy to think; Jesus was without sin, so how can He really feel my sin the way I do? In fact, because of His purity, Jesus can feel it even more. Because He is separated from sin, His sensitivity to sin actually increases. All the more, Jesus’ ability to sympathize with us is greater as well.
Bottom line ~ Jesus understands what you struggle with.
