Daily devotional: Fix my thoughts on Jesus

Scripture
Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted. Therefore, holy brothers, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess.
Hebrews 2:18-3:1 NIV

Observation
We should take great solace in that the Lord Jesus Christ can help us when we are tempted or suffering, because He too suffered and was tempted during His life on the earth.

Application
Fix my thoughts on Jesus!

Prayer
Lord Jesus, I love you! Thank you for reminding me that You too were tempted, and You suffered more than I can imagine. Thank you for coming down into humanity and experiencing our world up close and personal. Thank you for not just staying safely distant but for rather giving up that which was rightly Yours to come as a man, teach us, set an example for us, and suffer and die for us. Thanks be to God that You were raised from the dead and now sit at the right hand of God. Help me to fix my thoughts always on You, Lord Jesus. Help me remember that You are aware of my temptations and sufferings, that You can relate, and that You promise to help me as I fix my thoughts on You!
