He Knows the Trouble We’ve Seen

” a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering…”

Isaiah 53:3

 

At first glance, this might not seem like a very encouraging verse: our Lord despised and afflicted, but I think there is a hidden comfort in this. Some of you may be familiar with the song ‘Nobody knows the troubles I’ve seen’, but even if you aren’t, most of us have heard this phrase.

I think that in the midst of life’s troubles, it is easy for us to forget that Jesus is well acquainted with suffering, and that he understands our struggles better than we think He does.
