Couple of things we can learn from scripture.
1 – Jesus knows what you’re going through. When He helps you it’s not from a place of “I read that in a book,” it’s from the very real place of going through it.
2 – When finding leaders to help guide us through things there is power in those who have not just gone through the same things, but came out victorious!
3 – Leaders don’t hide what God has taken them through. Use your victories to encourage others as you lead them by example of what Jesus has done for you.
4 – Don’t do stupid things and say, “God is doing this to me so I can reach others.” That’s just an excuse to do stupid things!
5 – Always remember that even though Jesus can relate to what we have been through He NEVER sinned.
For since He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted.
