"I have indeed seen the misery of my people." - Exod 3.7
"A man of sorrows and familiar with suffering." - Isa 53.3
"In all their distress He too was distressed, and the angel of His presence saved them." - Isa 63.9
"When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through the fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you." - Isaiah 43.2
I'm grateful that God sees... that He is familiar with what His people go through... that He deeply cares about every situation.... and knows what's going on..... and understands and walks with us.... that He saves and rescues...... that His heart is tender and compassionate.
