He Knows

"After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry." ~ Matthew 4:2

 Jesus knows.  He has been there.

When the gnawing feeling of hunger eats at the inside of your belly, or makes your soul ache and you want to give up because fasting is just "too hard".  

 Jesus knows. 

"He was hungry."

40 days and 40 nights of fasting.  In the desert. Yeh, He knows. He KNOWS.


The same thing that sustained our Savior through temptation after 40 days and nights of fasting can get you through also - the Word of God.  (Matthew 4:4, Deuteronomy 8:3)

  1. It is such an encouragement to know that God truly understands! He's experienced every human emotion and challenge there is. I'm trusting Him!

    1. Thanks Joan. It's so easy to always think of Jesus as "fully God" and forget that he was also "fully human" and knows all of our trials and emotions first hand.
