305 days remaining after today.
First off never allow it to escape your mind that YESHUA came here 100% man, 100% GOD.
Let it comfort and fortify you that He gets it! He knows what it is to be human!
Where am I going with this?
First let me tell you where it started.
I picked up my Journey Magazine, March edition, because I couldn’t find my February and because it is the last day of February I chose to read Cafe Connection, an extra feature, not one of the daily devotions for the month of March. Beth Moore is the writer of this particular feature and she wrote of the LORD as He was saying on the cross, “Father, into Your hands I entrust My spirit.” That is HUGE, y’all. Huge!
Get this: JESUS had never died before! Have you ever had to do something you have never done before? Of course you have. Have you ever wondered how am I going to do this? Yep. Me too. The answer for us is the same as for JESUS. By Faith!
I told you it was HUGE!
There on the cross when His blood was nearly spent, YESHUA knew it was time, time for Him to die. Time for His inhaling, exhaling, hearing, seeing, tasting, feeling, touching – all those human body things to cease. His human journey was ending. You see the SON chose to trust the FATHER. He chose to believe that when He closed His eyes and His human heart stopped pumping that His Spirit would continue to live and that in three days His body and Spirit would come together again. JESUS chose to trust the FATHER to make it happen. That’s faith, Folks. Simple Faith. Just believe the FATHER.
Our human journeys shall come to an end as well. He gets that! He did it already! The way we will: by faith. Father, into Your hands I entrust My spirit.
Whatever it is. Whatever we are facing today – He knows! He’s done it! We can trust Him!
Hebrews 7:25-27 (CJB)
25 and consequently, he is totally able to deliver those who approach God through him; since he is alive forever and thus forever able to intercede on their behalf. 26 This is the kind of cohen gadol that meets our need — holy, without evil, without stain, set apart from sinners and raised higher than the heavens; 27 one who does not have the daily necessity, like the other cohanim g’dolim, of offering up sacrifices first for their own sins and only then for those of the people; because he offered one sacrifice, once and for all, by offering up himself.

Hebrews 11:6 (KJV)
6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. [source]
John 8:29 (KJV)
29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him. [source]
