Then He pointed to his disciples and said, anyone who does the will of my father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother! Matthew 12:49-50 NLT.
When we read this story in the bible, one thing we need to bear in mind and understand clearly is that Jesus was not teaching us here that our family members are not important, but he was rather telling us that we can have a relationship with him as we would with a family. In as much as Jesus is our saviour and redeemer, He also wants us to have that emotional relationship with Him. He is ready and available to be a mother, a father, a brother, a sister and a friend to us in times of these needs. He is ready to hear you out when you cannot physically approach your earthly family. For some of us who do not have a close and immediate family member, we can go to Jesus to fill in these vacuum in our lives. We can go to him and discuss issues of life as we would with any of our family members and we can be certain that he understand these things. There is no loneliness in God. He understands our needs and have made a way out for these needs to be fulfilled if only we can totally trust and depend on him. Remember when Jesus was leaving this earth, he showed us that he understood the emotional needs of a family and he demonstrated this by handling over his mother Mary to his disciples to
look after. John 19:26-27. Whatever your emotional needs are today, you can talk to Jesus about them!
Father I thank you that you’re able to help and guide me through my emotional situation. Help me to trust you more and more in Jesus name. Amen.
