Jesus’ suffering, rejection, killing, and rising was unavoidable. He knew that He had to go through each of those processes. Although there was no short cut or easy way out, God gave Him the victory. As it was with Him, so it is with you. As a follower of Christ, there are things that you must go through. No one can take your place, but God will be with you. Have confidence that God will bring you up and out of the valley to the mountain.
