The fourth chapter of Hebrews says that the Lord Jesus was tempted in every respect as we have been, yet without sin. That means that none of my temptations are truly unique, that I am not facing something that hasn’t been faced before. To believe that my situation is unique is perhaps the first step toward succumbing to unbelief, and sin, and eventually hardness of heart. Yet if my Lord has already faced this situation then I know he has the perfect grace available to help me endure and overcome. I know that He knows exactly what I feel and what I need and is ready to provide mercy and grace precisely fit for me.
