Hi, God’s word for me today is in Song of songs 8:1 which says, “If only you were to me like a brother, who was nursed at my mothers breasts! Then if I found you outside, I would kiss you, and no one would despise me.”
So, the beloved is saying that she wants her lover to be her brother, but the good thing for us is that not only is Jesus our lover but He is our father and our brother, He is our lover because He loved us enough to die for us on the cross, and He is our father because if we accept Jesus as our saviour then we are His adopted children, and He calls us His brothers (or sisters) because we share with Him in suffering, of course we haven’t died on a cross, and most likely won’t, but we do suffer hardships, the good thing is that Jesus provides a way through them, ”
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. (ESV 1 Corinthians 10:13)
So God will not let us be tempted beyond what we can bear, and when we are tempted He will provide a way through them, thank you so much Jesus.
Do you believe that Jesus died for your sins on the cross?
