Jesus understands the challenges you face. He knows how hard it is to stand against temptation as you try to live as a servant leader. He has experienced what it’s like to be misunderstood and used. He has made the right decisions in quiet moments, cared deeply for others in His private life, and stood courageously against opposition in public settings. He can help you as you face any situation. Where do you need Him to strengthen you today?
For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin.—Hebrews 4:15
Prayer: Jesus, thank You for being able to empathize with me, especially with my weakness. Thank You for facing temptation, for knowing what it takes to stand up under pressure, so that You can help me when I tempted to give up and give in. Help me today to do what is right both privately and publicly. I ask in Your name, Amen.
