I love God’s word and I love when I find something new in it that I have never read before. I came across this gem in Luke;
“And he withdrew from them about a stone’s throw, and knelt down and prayed, saying, “Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done.” And there appeared to him an angel from heaven, strengthening him.”
Luke 22:41-43 ESV
What stood out for me was; “And there appeared to him an angel from heaven, strengthening him.” I am glad that some of you have seen it. This is where it jumped out at me. Not only did it jump out at me, when I shared it with Sara, but it also jumped out at her as well. What really jumped out was the fact that God sent an angel to strengthen His Son during intense prayer. God saw fit that in Jesus’ humanity to send help. Not only did God see fit to send help, But He also sent strength.
Now, it may be simple to you, but to Sara and me, we saw see it this way; if God saw fit to send His Son help, He would send help to us in our humanity. God provides a way regardless for us to receive help in our time of need. He allowed Jesus to experience humanity to relate to those He would save.
