Help For The Struggling

1. Our struggles attract Jesus' attention.
(Matt 9:10-12 NIV) While Jesus was having dinner at Matthew's house, many tax collectors and "sinners" came and ate with him and his disciples. When the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, "Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and 'sinners'?" On hearing this, Jesus said, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick.
(Luke 19:10 NIV) “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.”
2. Jesus isn’t intimidated by the seriousness or size of our struggles.
(Mark 5: 8 NIV) For Jesus had said to him, "Come out of this man, you evil spirit!"
3. Jesus has the plan and power to subdue our struggles.
(Mark 5:13 NIV) He gave them permission, and the evil spirits came out and went into the pigs.
4. Jesus uses transformed strugglers to help transform strugglers.
(Mark 5:19 NIV) Jesus did not let him, but said, "Go home to your family and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you."
