The try­ing of hearts

Activated - - NEWS - From Je­sus with Love

I un­der­stand the try­ing of men’s hearts, the depths of de­spair, dis­cour­age­ment, and des­per­a­tion. I un­der­stand for­sak­ing, for I had to for­sake My Father to go to earth, and then I had to for­sake those that I loved so dearly on earth to re­turn to My Father.

I un­der­stand the depth of pain and af­flic­tion, for I screamed out in pain as the nails pierced My hands and My feet. I un­der­stand the feel­ing of be­ing for­saken by those who loved Me, even My own Father, for I cried out, “My God, My God, why have You for­saken Me?”

1 I un­der­stand the depth of fear—fear of fac­ing what is ahead for the pain and the sor­row that it will bring. I un­der­stand the depth of the feel­ing of aban­don­ment, for those who loved Me most for­sook Me as I was car­ried away into cus­tody. I know the depth of hurt to see one that you love be­tray you, as one of My own friends be­trayed Me with a kiss.

Though My Father did not let this cup pass from Me, and though My loved ones fled from My side in My time of need, and though the nails pierced My hands and feet, and though I was beaten, and though I felt as if My Father had for­saken Me—it all brought about such great vic­tory, re­newal, and sal­va­tion!

It looked like a de­feat when I was whipped, crowned with thorns, and nailed to the cross, but it changed the course of his­tory and all eternity!

When life looks dark and you can­not see, I have My arms around you, as My Father had His arms around Me. I ask you to trust Me in the depths, trust Me in your heartache, trust Me in your hour of need, for you too shall have a glo­ri­ous res­ur­rec­tion as a re­sult of My sac­ri­fice for you.
