God Empathizes With You

woman-1006102_640

When dealing with a chronic illness, there are times when we feel no one understands or cares. There is hope. We are not alone. Jesus cares. In fact, he shares sympathy with you. Jesus knows you. He shares the feelings you have. He is in tune with you. God empathizes with you.

Today’s Bible Verse:

John 11:35 (KJV), “Jesus wept.”

What the Verse Means:

God empathizes with you.

Praying Using the Verse:

  1. Heavenly Father, thank you for paying attention to our hurts and cares.
  2. Lord Jesus, as today’s verse says, “Jesus wept.” Thank you for caring enough to cry with us and to comfort us.
  3. God, help us to cast our cares on you. Your word teaches us to do just that in 1 Peter 5:7 (KJV), “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”
