Because of our sins he was wounded,
beaten because of the evil we did.
We are healed by the punishment he suffered,
made whole by the blows he received.
Isaiah 53:5 GNT

Does God understand our suffering?
It could be easy to think that God is above suffering and hardship. After all, the Bible tells us that he created the world and that he rules over everything. But Scripture also contains the amazing truths of Jesus Christ’s life, death, and resurrection.
Jesus Christ, God in human flesh, lived in the same broken world we do. He experienced heartbreaks, afflictions, and suffering. As our Messiah, he took on the full weight of our sin to restore our relationship with God and with each other. Through him, we have salvation.
Because of Jesus, we have access to an all-powerful God who also identifies with us. God truly understands our hearts and invites us to share our pain with him.
