He experienced it too!

Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard, a servant of the king of Babylon, came to Jerusalem. He burned the house of the Lord… 2 Kings 25:8-9

The news is full of wildfires, tornadoes, flood waters, and earthquakes destroying homes. It’s a tragic loss displacing hundreds and thousands of families.
It’s a tragic loss that God experienced and one that He allowed.
His Own house was destroyed – stripped of the precious gold and the utensils for the worship of God.

There is nothing you experience that He has not also experienced.

Have you lost a home?
God lost His.
Have you lost a child?
God lost His.
Did a friend betray you?
Jesus had one of those too!
I know… you have a terminal disease!
Jesus took your sin upon Himself. The wages of sin is death and it doesn’t get much more terminal than that!
Tragedy is an opportunity for temptation to be angry, vindictive, hateful, and that can lead to further sin.
It is written we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Heb 4:15

Your experiences are his experiences!
Therefore He says, “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Heb 4:16
