Shabbat Shalom Fellow believers,
Did you have a great week? Did you have a few trials? I know I did. But we do not have to go through these trials alone. We can invite Yahusha to walk beside us in our pain and sorrow no matter what it might be. Why? Because . . .
He Walked in Our Shoes
To help his staff of young architects understand the needs of those for whom they design housing, David Dillard sends them on “sleepovers.” They put on pajamas and spend 24 hours in a senior living center in the same conditions as people in their 80’s and 90’s. They wear earplugs to simulate hearing loss, tape their fingers together to limit manual dexterity, and exchange eyeglasses to replicate vision problems. Dillard says, “The biggest benefit is [that] when I send 27-year-olds out, they come back with a heart 10 times as big. They meet people and understand their plights” (Rodney Brooks, USA Today).
Yahusha the Messiah lived on this earth for 30-33 years and shared in our humanity. He was made like us, “fully human in every way” and fully divine (Hebrews 2:17), so He knows what it’s like to live in a human body on this earth. He understands the struggles we face and comes alongside with understanding and encouragement.
Yahusha walks beside us to give us courage, strength, and a confident expectation for our future.
Our Messiah could have avoided the cross/stake. Instead, He obeyed His Father. Through His death, He broke the power of Satan and freed us from our fear of death. (Hebrews 2:14-15)
In every temptation, Yahusha walks beside us to give us courage, strength, and a confident expectation along the way.
Dear Yahusha, thank You for “walking in our shoes” on this earth and for being with us. May we experience Your presence today. HalleluYAH! ~ Our Daily Bread
