Jesus experienced dehydration just like you and I. Jesus’ words of “I thirst” (John 19:28) are popular, but perhaps one of the most transparent moments of His earthly ministry came when He said, “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will.” (Matthew 26:39)
There was a time when even Jesus didn’t want to take one more step. But as the God-Man, He did what you and I couldn’t do: He continued on His own strength.
Jesus took all the steps necessary to Calvary so that when you and I have nothing left, we can rely on Him for our strength.
If you’re experiencing spiritual dehydration, don’t be surprised – it’s part of the Christian life. And when you do experience debilitating spiritual weakness, rely on Him, who took those steps for you.
His power is made perfect in your weakness!
