S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.
The author of the book of Hebrews said that Jesus experienced every attack of temptation you and I can possibly imagine. Not only that, but He conquered each temptation. It’s because of this fact that Jesus can help us when we’re attacked, because “He’s Been There.”
It matters little that you’ve never experienced the kind of temptation you’re faced with right now if you know that Jesus has already “Been There.” When an individual really gets that, I believe just knowing that someone has actually “Been There Before” helps us get through it. Never, ever do I say that I’m the only one who has ever experienced what I’m going through. There’s a number of braggarts out there, but that thought is preposterous. As a “Follower of Jesus,” simply rest in the fact that your Blessed Savior knows exactly what you’re faced with this AM. Trust me … “He’s Been There.”
As I head out this AM for my daily assignment, I’m going out in Your power. I’m not afraid to face the world with all of its attractions. I know “You’ve Been There.” Amen
