The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. John 1:14
From this one scripture verse, we trust that God understands every situation that we face because He made us and sees everything that happens to us. We also know He understands because He has been to earth and experienced life as a human being. He “became flesh and made his dwelling among us” as the person Jesus Christ.
Jesus’ earthly life included a wide range of difficulty. He felt the searing heart of the sun, the pain of an empty stomach, and even the uncertainty of homelessness. Emotionally, He endured the tension of disagreements, the burn of betrayal, and the ongoing threat of violence.
Jesus experienced the joys of friendship and family love, as well as the worst problems that we face here on earth. He provides hope for us all. He is the Wonderful Counselor who patiently listens to all of our concerns with insight and care. He is the One who can say, I’ve been through that too, and I understand.
So whenever you feel that there isn’t anyone who understands how you feel, or what you are going through regardless of what it entails. Don’t stress it. God does understand, and has provided everything that we need to overcome.
