Jesus trusted his humanity to the word of God and the Holy Spirit. He was the word that became flesh with the limitations of the flesh. He cast himself upon God through the word concerning himself.
10 I was cast upon you from birth. From My mother's womb you have been My God.NKJV
5 Therefore, when He came into the world, He said: "Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but a body you have prepared for Me. 6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin you had no pleasure. 7 Then I said, 'Behold, I have come —In the volume of the book it is written of me — to do your will, O God.'" NKJV
There are several reasons why Jesus became a part of humanity. 1. He had to partake of human nature so he could identify with us in our weaknesses. 2. He had to become one with mankind so he could overcome sin in humanity. 3. He had to have a human body so it could be offered as a sacrifice for sin.
17 Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. 18 For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted. NKJV
5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
6 And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. KJV
6 So the Lord was sorry he had ever made them and put them on the earth. It broke his heart. NLT
The foreknowledge of God was aware of what man finally did; however when the act was committed it broke God’s heart and he was grieved because man had been torn from him. You can know a loved one is going to do something; however when the act is done you are hurt more by the act than the knowledge of it being done. This is how it was with God.
