Day 51 – God Empathizes with You

Learning to deal with a chronic illness understands that Jesus cares. The God who created the heavens and the Earth empathizes with you.

When dealing with a chronic illness, there are times when we feel no one understands or cares. There is hope. We are not alone. 

Jesus cares. In fact, he shares sympathy with you. Jesus knows you. He shares the feelings you have. He is in tune with you. God empathizes with you.

Bible Verse

John 11:35 (KJV), “Jesus wept.”

What the Verse Means

God empathizes with you.

Prayer Using Scripture

  • • Heavenly Father, thank you for paying attention to my hurts and cares.
  • • Lord Jesus, as today’s verse says, “Jesus wept.” Thank you for caring enough to cry with me and to comfort me.
  • • God, help me as your word teaches in 1 Peter 5:7 (KJV), “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”
