II Thessalonians 3:3 ” But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one.”

Why did Jesus spend 33 years here on earth, when what He wanted to do could of been done in a week or less? He could of popped down to earth from heaven, preached at the Temple, got arrested, crucified, died and rose again in the span of a few days. Instead Jesus spent years doing and experiencing very mundane and human activities. For even though Jesus was fully God…He was also fully man, and with that came every human emotion, sensation, bodily function and condition. Isaiah 53:3 points out that, “He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering.” Jesus spent 33 years on earth going through exactly the same things you do…sickness, weakness, humiliation, hunger, thirst, grief, and sorrow. But why? He did it in order that you would trust Him…not as some high & lofty Deity that has no idea of what you’re going through, but as a fellow human being whose been where you’re at today. The steadfast faithfulness of Jesus can be trusted in whatever you’re going through today…or as David wrote, “I am in pain and distress; may Your salvation, O God, protect me.” (Psalm 69:29)
