“Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.” – Psalm 34:19.
“But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.” – 1 Peter 4:13.
As children of God, we have all faced trials, temptations, and tough seasons. Understanding people’s problems comes from sitting where they sit. God uses what we have been through to help other people. Nobody can help you like someone who has already been down that road and understands what you are going through. Jesus is our example to follow after. He is our High Priest He knows our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same things we do and can (and will) help us through our trials. When have gone through something, we then understand other’s problems and can help them see how Jesus can bring them out of their situation as well!
