Prayer: Lord, I want to completely trust You in all my ways today. Please help me listen to You and walk in Your priorities and plans. Thank You. Amen

Scripture: Therefore, it was necessary for Him to be made in every respect like us, His brothers and sisters, so that He could be our merciful and faithful High Priest before God. Then He could offer a sacrifice that would take away the sins of the people. Since He Himself has gone through suffering and testing, He is able to help us when we are being tested. Hebrews 2:17-18 NLT

Do you ever catch yourself thinking that you are unique – uniquely poor, or uniquely awkward, or uniquely ungifted?

This passage has something special for you then. Jesus was like us in all ways. But He was successful in all He did because of His complete trust in God and complete commitment to God’s priorities. In that sense, He was different from us. But in all physical and mental ways, He was just as limited as we are. The converse, then, can also be true. YOU are in every respect like Jesus was, especially when you decide to completely trust God in all ways and completely commit to God’s priorities at all times.

Have a nice day.
