When It Comes to Our Suffering, God “Gets It”

I’ll be the first to admit I’ve been a cynic at times when it comes to the whole idea that God understands our suffering because he’s been there himself. In my own ignorance I sometimes have angrily thought, “Ok so he understands because he’s been there. Big deal. He’s GOD! He can do anything - so how bad could it have been really? Does he know what it’s like to be a limited human like me?” And of course the answer is, “yes, he does, because he WAS a limited human like me!” Randy Alcorn has a great blog about this very topic called “When It Comes to Our Suffering, God “Gets It”” It’s a good message to start out our week together.
