He Gets Me


By Andrea Merrell

“Eight years of marriage, and he just doesn’t get me,” the young woman complained. “You’d think he could understand me by now.”

Isn’t that what we all want? For others to understand us? To embrace our strengths, ignore our weaknesses, and laugh at our quirks? And most importantly, to love us anyway—in spite of our differences?

Some spend a lifetime searching for that kind of approval and acceptance, but it can only be found in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Jesus knows us even better than we know ourselves. He understands us fully and loves us unconditionally. He looks past our weaknesses—and quirks—and sees us as the person we were created to be. Psalm 139:1-6 (NLT) describes it this way:

O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me.

You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

You know what I am going to say even before I say it, Lord.

You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to understand.

If you're struggling and feel that no one understands you, turn to Jesus.

He gets you!
