In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33b
When we experience difficult times, it is tempting to think that God has abandoned us, or that Jesus does not love us. But ease of life is never an indicator of God’s love for us. Jesus is close with and loved deeply by his Father. And Jesus experienced terrible difficulties. When we suffer, we can take comfort in knowing that God understands our suffering, because God knows suffering. Jesus our Suffering Savior is always with us in our trying times, assuring us that suffering never has the final say. After the suffering of the cross comes the healing of resurrection.
