Jesus endured the absolute worst of things for us by dying on the cross. He experienced agony, physical, emotional, spiritual etc. beyond what we could ever truly comprehend or imagine, all because He loves us that much. When we receive Jesus into our lives, this means our precious Saviour is there for us 24/7, and He truly understands the things we go through. He is there, waiting and wanting to help us and to be with us through everything. When life challenges us, with Jesus, we have the most special place where we can rest despite what may be happening and what we may be feeling. My safe place, my hiding place is with the Lord. God promises to “never leave us nor forsake us”(Deuteronomy 31v6) and to help us through the most difficult of times. When we choose to look to Jesus, to earnestly seek His face and to trust Him, we find our security and we find hope, peace and joy and have victory over every circumstance because of Him.
