Topic: When You Fall Down
As they were going out, they met a man from Cyrene, named Simon, and they forced him to carry the cross. – Matthew 27:32, NIV
Joel Osteen Daily Devotional 15 April 2022 MESSAGE
when Jesus was being led out of the city to be crucified, the custom was that the person had to carry their own cross. Jesus was so exhausted from the sleepless night, the suffering and pain of the trial, that He fell down under the weight of the cross. God provided a man named Simon to be there to carry the cross for Jesus.
God is sending us the message that we don’t have to be strong all the time. It’s okay to feel overwhelmed. Sometimes the weight of what we’re carrying gets too heavy. It’s okay to say, “God, I don’t think I can do this.” When you’re down, when you’re discouraged, God is not going to leave you there. He’ll always have someone to help lift you back up, someone to encourage you, someone to help you carry the load that you can’t carry. If it’s not an angel, God will send a person across your path. There will be a Simon there to help lift you back up.
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You don’t fault me for the times when I don’t have the strength on my own to do what I need to do. Thank You that You find a way to get me the help I need in times of trouble. I believe that You know just the right people to encourage and lift me up. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
