JESUS CHRIST UNDERSTAND MY TEARS

Devotional for Saturday, March 19, 2022


Morning Luke 22:39-46

Noon Psalm 15

Evening Isaiah 53:1-6


There are times in my life when the self-control I received from the Holy Spirit does not hold the shield up. When I feel that the enemy is attacking me and wants to defeat me, I remember the words of my Lord when he said to Peter: “Satan has asked you to sift you like wheat, but I have prayed to the Father so that your faith does not fail...” As my tears keep falling, I feel like I can bear it no longer. I know it's hard, but God understands me, who else but Him? In Gethsemane, His soul suffered the greatest stress or agony that anyone could feel, to the point of saying to the Father: "Let this cup pass from me...", but immediately afterwards, the Giver of faith added: "...but not my will, but yours be done.” As I emerge from the ashes of my anguish, your Holy Spirit continues to strengthen and restore me; because no one like You can understand my anguish, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Only those who have had an intimate encounter with You know that we truly must suffer to understand and be able to love as You love.


Written by Roberto Guerra, translated by Maria Elena Cardona


 

Morning Luke 22:39-46

39 And he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him.

40 And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation.

41 And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,

42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

43 And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.

44 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

45 And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow,

46 And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.

Noon Psalm 15

1 Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?

2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.

3 He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.

4 In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.

5 He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.


Evening Isaiah 53:1-6

1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?

2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

March's challenge: Do everything possible so that your life can be a visible testimony to all men as Christians living in the likeness of Christ. Everyday, praise your Creator. Keep a constant praise on your lips. Listen to Christian praise and worship music with your family. Go to Church, not only to be a spectator, but a worshiper. Worship as you pray, worship as you read the Bible, worship in your illness, always worship.



Annual Bible reading: 1 Samuel 18, 19, 20, 21, 22
