“I know exactly what you are going through.” We may have heard those words coming from a well-intentioned friend doing their best to give us encouragement during a rough time. But sometimes, what we are going through is so difficult and complex to explain, it’s hard to believe anyone could truly understand how we feel and what we are going through.
But God does.
When God came down to Earth in human form as the Son, Jesus, he walked alongside humanity. His Word says He is Emmanuel which means God is with us. He walks with us in our journey of life. We can talk to Him about anything. Even about situations where we can’t find the words to explain. He knows because not only has He experienced everything that we have felt, but He is our Creator; the very One who made us. So pour out your heart to the Friend who really understands and cares and Who always has the time to listen.
God, the things I am going through right now are hard to explain, and sometimes I don't even understand why I am feeling the way I do. You know me so well and You understand what I am trying to say even when I don't have the words. It is such a comfort to know You are there.
Zechariah 2:10 – “…Rejoice! For, here, I am coming; and I will live among you.”
