When we think that Satan is gaining the edge, when we wonder if Jesus truly understands us and what we are coping with, when we feel ripples of anger, bitterness, sadness, despair, hopelessness overwhelming us–remember Jesus Himself was tested. He suffered. All of those emotions bore down on Him as He hung from that cross. The weight of all that we suffer consumed Him that week. He was tested over and over and over in His lifetime. And while He was on earth, few followed Him, few believed Him, few would have considered Him successful.
And yet HE WAS.
He understands, He knows, He loves, He overcomes. ALL.
