Tell Jesus all your troubles!
“No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing: but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard form my Father I have made known to you.” John 15:15
What a privilege to be called a friend of Jesus! A true friend is always there to help you in good times or bad times. A true friend can always be counted on to help you when you are in need. Jesus is a true friend. Jesus knows our every weakness, He knows our strengths, He knows our hurts, He knows those things we keep hidden or secret, he knows when we are glad or sad, and most of all He knows what we need when we need it. He knows everything about us and He is still our friend! He has shown His love and friendship for us by dying on the cross for us even when we did not deserve His love and friendship.
So knowing He is our friend, why do we so often carry such a heavy load of care, worry, difficulty and trouble? The answer is simple we really don’t believe He is our friend or that He really cares about us. We feel we have to carry our own burdens or work out every situation on our own. It hard to ask for help even when we need it desperately. It is so hard to admit that we have done something or made a decision that has put us in a position where we need help. Many times we are just embarrassed to admit a mistake that has lead to a major problem. But He already knows because you will never share anything with Jesus that He is not aware of before you even come to Him. He is just waiting for you to come to Him with your needs. Like the hymn says: “O what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear, all because we do not carry everything to God in prayer!” Every day take your cares and burdens to Jesus, He is your friend and He cares about you very much!!! An Everlasting Word!!!!!
