Jesus knows the challenges we face. He faced ongoing pressure from opponents and disciples and family members. People around Him pressured Him to be the person, teacher, and messiah that they wanted Him to be. Crowds pulled at Him; people who needed His touch shouted His name; religious leaders confronted Him. His disciples pulled Him aside to ask questions and didn’t understand what He was doing. Does any of this sound familiar to you? Know that Jesus understands the struggles you face as a leader. He empathizes with you and intercedes on your behalf. Depend on Him 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, encourage my heart. Lead me in Your ways. You know the challenges I face. Give me wisdom and go before me, Lord, I pray in Your name, amen.
