Right There with You

In all their suffering, he suffered. —Isaiah 63:9

I love Isaiah 63:9, which so tenderly describes God’s dealings with the children of Israel (even when they were reaping the consequences of their own sinful choices). It tells us that in all our suffering, Christ also suffers.

He is with you. Helping you. Loving you. Hurting with you. Driving you back to Him, drawing you closer in, making you more dependent upon His grace and power.

As you get to know and trust His heart, you’ll be able to face the cross—the way Christ did—and still say, even through your tears, “Not my will, but Yours be done.”

Look again into the heart of God and see Someone who has a deeper, more loving plan for your life than you could ever figure out on your own. You can be confident that if you choose to submit your way to Him through this trial of faith, His presence and provision will be sufficient for you. He will use this disappointment, this heartbreak, this unspeakable circumstance to teach you, train you, and fulfill His holy, eternal purposes for your life.

Make it Personal

Thank the Lord that no matter what you may go through in life, He is right there with you.
