In my reading recently, I was struck by the fact that the Jesus in whom we put our trust today is the one who was there at the very beginning. He is the one who in fact who has been in every place and time since then. There is nothing he hasn’t seen and no place he hasn’t been to. He didn’t just come and visit our earth for 30 or so years, and then left us completely but rather in the form of the Son of God has been existent and ever present for all time.
As such there is nothing about this world that he doesn’t know, or understand or cant deal with. In Hebrews 13:5 we read that He will never leave us or forsake us and in Hebrews 13:6, that the Lord is my helper, therefore, I will not be afraid. This Jesus has been the one who throughout all of time has proved faithful in being the helper of His people and the one who never leaves or forsakes His chosen ones.
This year will bring many joys, trials, and many changes, yet Jesus will still be the one who never changes and who we can utterly rely on. He is the one who will totally understand when be bring our joys and struggles to Him.
