“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Hebrews 5:7-8

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

In His life on earth

Jesus made His prayers and requests

with loud cries and tears to God,

who could save Him from death.

Because He was humble and devoted, God heard Him.

.

But even though He was God’s Son,

He learned through His sufferings to be obedient.

.

– Hebrews 5:7-8 (GNT)

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

What perfect example Jesus gives us!

.

He prayed incessantly,

and in those moments of fear – when His humanity took over –

He would cry out in anguish to His Father.

.

True followers of Jesus

never stop learning from Him

– they go humbly before God,

full of devotion, faith and trust,

knowing that He is listening to their prayers, their praises,

and their groans in anguish.

.

True believers, entrust themselves to God,

seeking, in faith, to emulate Jesus

and submissively accept their suffering

in the knowledge that God is in control

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

“I sought the Lord, and He heard me,

and delivered me from all my fears”

.

– Psalm 34:4

.

.

.

PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Lord, sustain me through all my circumstances

and help me bear my load,

accepting in faith and trust all that You permit.

.

Lord, I cannot do it without You.
