Nobody understands like Jesus

Nobody understands like Jesus when it comes to your problems, frustrations, sickness or doubts.

Because Jesus was fully man, he experienced the human emotions and pain you feel. And because he is God, he knows all things, especially what is troubling you and what you're going through.

You can take your problems to Jesus and rest assured that he does understand. No matter what is happening in your life, he knows all the details of it even better than you do.

The Bible says every hair on your head is numbered. Jesus doesn't care about just your big problems; he's concerned about your most minor troubles too.

Maybe you feel today that no one on earth can empathize with you. Jesus, who is still on earth through the Holy Spirit, dwells within you and understands all.

Don't forget him. Don't underestimate his love and protection. Go to him in prayer.

Nobody understands like Jesus. Here are a few examples:

"I feel so lonely..."

"But a time is coming, and has come, when you will be scattered, each to his own home. You will leave me all alone. Yet I am not alone, for my Father is with me." (John 16:32)

Jesus knows firsthand how lonely you can feel when you're doing the right thing. During his trial and crucifixion he was alone. Except for John, who stood at the foot the cross, his 12 disciples deserted him. And yet, he knew that his Father was with him.

Then just before his death, Jesus asked his Father why he had forsaken him. That loneliness was excruciating because it was the first time Jesus had been separated from the Father. It was necessary, though, because Jesus had taken all of our sins upon himself and served as our substitute on the cross.

Jesus knows how terrible it is to feel loneliness, so he promised to be with you, through the Holy Spirit. Even if you can't feel him there, he is inside you. Remember that feelings are not facts. Remember also that Jesus never lies.

When it comes to being misunderstood and lonely, Jesus stands out as the most unappreciated person in history.

He has comfort and support to give you, if you're willing to go to him in prayer to receive it. He alone has the power to heal your loneliness.

"I'm really worried..."

"Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me." (John 14:1)

Nobody understands like Jesus when it comes to worry. During his time on earth, he lived an impoverished existence. Many times he did not know whether he was going to eat every day.

He knew ahead of time that he would end up on the cross, tortured and humiliated. Still, he trusted his heavenly Father. Trust in God is the key. That's what Jesus commanded us to do.

Don't feel ashamed or guilty about being worried. Instead, take your worry to Jesus with the confidence that he understands and will help you make it through your trial.

"I'm so afraid of what might happen..."

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."(John 14:26-28)

God is in control. No matter what happens, never doubt that. For followers of Jesus, everything will turn out for good, even if it has to happen in the next life. No person and no bad event can separate us from him.

When Jesus tells us not to be afraid, that's not a suggestion--that's a command! He's reassuring us because he does know the future. Remember something important. In the Garden of Gethsemane, before his crucifixion, Jesus was afraid. He has experienced fear too. Nobody understands like Jesus when it comes to your fears.

But because Jesus knows the future and because he cannot lie, we can have the peace he talks about.

"I've been so bad in the past. Am I going to hell?"

"I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?"(John 11:25-26)

Your salvation lies not in good deeds, but in the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. But you have to repent of your sins, ask God for forgiveness, and accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Then you'll never have to worry about hell ever again.

That doesn't give you license to sin; just the opposite. You should reflect your changed attitude in your life, since you are now a representative of Jesus Christ.

All of us sin, all of us fail from time to time, but we can be certain that as soon as we ask, God forgives our sins and draws us back to him.
