~Jeremiah 32:27 Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?
I want to instill in you that when you read God’s Word, you are constantly reminded that He is your Creator, your Comforter, your Teacher, etc. Nothing is too hard for Him. Neither is your discouragement or any of your problems too hard for Him. Therefore, if you remain in you stay discouraged, it is not because the trial is too great for the Lord. My friend, you remain discouraged because you wish to.
Take your eyes off you and your circumstances and place them on the Lord. He has been where you are. Don’t you think Jesus was discouraged when He was in the desert for 40 days and nights? He hadn’t eaten – He was being tempted of Satan – He was so physically tried that the angels attended to Him afterwards. Jesus understands, Christian! He understands every detail of your situation and wants to help you. Don’t you want to help your children when they are in trouble? Surely you would not sit idly by and watch your child suffer, would you? Of course not! All the more for your Heavenly Father!
~Hebrews 2:18 For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.
I love how God used the word “succour” here! What an absolutely perfect word! Noah Webster defines succour as:
Literally, to run to, or run to support; hence, to help or relieve when in difficulty, want or distress; to assist and deliver from suffering; as, to succor a besieged city; to succor prisoners.
Isn’t that encouraging to you? The Lord desires to run to our side, to support us, and relieve our distress! He wants to deliver us from our suffering! That doesn’t mean He will remove our physical issues but He promises to deliver us, to help us through the hard times! I don’t know about you, but this characteristic of God reveals a compassionate and loving Father! Allow Him to succour you, my friend! Submit to Him and allow Him to heal you from within!
