God is Acquainted with Sorrow

“He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem” (Isaiah 53:3).

Jesus walked the path of suffering and shame, in order to understand the places where we hurt. “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathise with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are; yet he did not sin” (Hebrews 4:5).

God wants us to know that he understands how we feel and he cares about our emotional wellbeing. He is a God of comfort and compassion and wants to heal every broken emotion. God wants to heal our hurt and pain. Sometimes we try to mask our pain with our own solutions, that at times create more problems. By the stripes of Jesus we can claim healing for every emotional wound. “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit” (Psalm‬ ‭34:18‬).

Jesus was described in (Isaiah 53:3) as being despised and rejected by men, a Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. There is nothing that you will go through that Jesus cannot relate to. His time on earth was depicted by suffering and pain and he wants to comfort you.

There is hope friends and God will walk with us and carry us through every place where we hurt. He died for our healing and he wants to make us whole again. Stay in his presence and know that Jesus is able to heal you where it hurts. “But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed” (Isaiah‬ ‭53:5‬).

  1. So many people ‘self-medicate’ with alcohol and drugs to mask their pain for a short time. God offers us as a more permanent solution through the acceptance of Jesus Christ. We welcome in His Holy Spirit, Who comes in and cuts off the roots from your former pain and transplants in some fruit!! Thank You, Jesus! Thanks APY💕

  2. This is important to remember, otherwise we might think that we are the only ones to ever hurt in our own little world.
    For the Son of God to become a man to come and live in our world, to experience our experience, in hurt, hunger, thirst; all the facets of pain, even possibly loneliness, should give us encouragement that he understands what we feel.
    Thank you, God bless you.

  3. Amen 🙏🏽. Your word comes today with a very practical occurrence of this today. A friend of mine was feeling very discouraged, I not knowing that she was feeling this way felt prompted to just message her and tell her that God is with you in every step you take. She calls me later and tells me how she was feeling and it was such a wonderful reminder that God cares for us, every small feeling can be taken to Him and he will meet us there.
