Monday, October 1

He satisfies the desire of those who fear him; he hears their cry for help, and he rescues them.—Ps. 145:19.

 

Jehovah is “the God who supplies endurance and comfort.” (Rom. 15:5) He alone fully understands not only the problems we face but also the way our environment, emotions, and even our genetic makeup affect us. He is thus the best one to equip us to endure. How will God answer our prayers for strength to endure? When we ask Jehovah to help us cope with trials, he will “make the way out.” (1 Cor. 10:13) Does Jehovah maneuver matters to remove the trial? Perhaps. Often, however, he makes the way out “so that [we] may be able to endure it.” Yes, Jehovah strengthens us so that we “may endure fully with patience and joy.” (Col. 1:11) And since he knows our physical, mental, and emotional limits so intimately, Jehovah will never allow a situation to develop to a point that we cannot remain faithful. w16.04 2:5, 6

When the text mentioned how Jehovah understands our genetic make-up, it reminded me of  my favorite chapter of Psalms, chapter 139. David goes in depth about how Jehovah really understands us about individuals.

 

Looking at the complexities of not only our genetic code but everything that may involve. Why our hair color may be different or the same from our relatives, the mixture quirks we share with our parents may seem simple or trivial to us, but are what makes us us, to Him.

 

In the context of the text though, it helps us to appreciate Jehovah knows our inherited imperfections as well. That inherited disease, mental problem, or struggle we got through something that was totally out of our control: Jehovah knows it. He knows the relative we inherited from, whether it was 2 generations ago, or 10 generations ago, he knows the source. It no doubt hurts him to know that another imperfection beyond our control has been added to the list. That's why he's moved to "make a way out" for us. Truly a loving God 😊😊😊
