Exodus 3:7
And the Lord said: “I have surely seen the oppression of My people who are in Egypt, and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters, for I know their sorrows. ”

A very angry man came to his pastor and demanded to know, “Where was God when my son was killed?” Knowing the hurt and sorrow behind that question, the pastor gently replied, “The same place that He was when His Son died.”

There is nothing that you or I can experience that God has not already experienced through His Son. Speaking of His people, God told Moses, “For I know their sorrows.” This is much more than an intellectual knowledge; it is a personal knowledge. It is not the knowledge gleaned by an objective bystander, but from feeling the pain of every cruel blow, the frustration of every unjust decision and the fear of every helpless slave before his master. God bore with His people their every sorrow.

Are you grieving today over a personal betrayal? Jesus understands—He was betrayed by one in His innermost circle. Are you hurt by an unjust decision? Jesus can identify with that—He was totally innocent yet condemned to die a criminal’s death. Are you grieving the loss of a close friend? Jesus wept at the death of His friend Lazarus. Are you suffering from a feeling of loneliness? Jesus knows what you’re going through because He was separated from His Father by sin on the cross. He cried out, “My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?” (Matthew 27:46).

Turn your sorrows over to the One who understands them best. He will not brush them aside lightly because He has felt the pain they cause. But the One who is acquainted with all our griefs is also the One who can heal them. Find in Him the comfort to survive the hurt and the power to become a whole person again.

CHRIST CAN DO WONDERS WITH YOUR BRO KEN HEART IF YOU GIVE HIM ALL THE PIECES.
