Suffering & God's Sovereignty

My daughter Linda is writing a paper on The Sovereignty of God in Suffering.  I'll be posting a link to her blog when she gets it posted on there.  Meanwhile, let the following words of wisdom from a young lover of God bless you:

Jesus understands our suffering because He’s human. 
He can do something about our suffering because He’s God. 

So we can put our complete trust in Him, and cling to Him as the Source of our help in times of trouble.

Hebrews 4:14-15 “Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.”

He is perfect, and He is sympathetic. There is no greater Saviour, and there is no greater Lord. Who else can we turn to in our suffering? No one else has both suffered as we have, and accomplished the work of atonement without the stain of sin. There is only Jesus, and He is enough. 

Praise God!
There is only Jesus, and He is enough.  Praise God!
