While he lived on earth, anticipating death, Jesus cried out in pain and wept in sorrow as he offered up priestly prayers to God. Because he honored God, God answered him.
Though he was God’s Son, he learned trusting-obedience by what he suffered, just as we do. Then, having arrived at the full stature of his maturity and having been announced by God as high priest in the order of Melchizedek, he became the source of eternal salvation to all who believingly obey him. (Heb 5:7)
Most women seem to suffer terribly as they carry and deliver their children, but if you’ve ever been through it with them and then seen them afterwards, you’ll see for yourself the awesome glow of love and peace that they quickly enjoy.
In fact, none of us likes to suffer, but be honest ... it’s always after the hardest times of our lives that we can truly see we’ve achieved something special and grown the most.
The Lord once told me, “Son, trust me enough to honour me.”
Lord, nothing is ever hidden from you. You know everything about us and all our actions, all our thoughts are ever before your eyes. Help me this day to trust You enough to honour You. ❤️
