I took a long, long look at these three words and sighed:
Undoubtedly, if you’re human, you’re familiar with these three words.
You can read these words in your Bible in Isaiah 53:3.
You can picture these words as they’re sung in the hymn “God Understands.”
In 1935 missionaries to Peru, Cliff and Ruth Bicker, planned to return to the United States with their two sons. Before the family left Peru Cliff died in a car accident. As a result, Ruth’s brother, pastor Oswald Smith, wrote the words to the hymn, “God Understands.” It’s a hymn of comfort.
God understands your sorrow, He sees the falling tear,
And whispers, “I am with thee,” Then falter not, nor fear.
God understands your heartache, He knows the bitter pain;
O, trust Him in the darkness, You cannot trust in vain.
God understands your weakness, He knows the tempter’s pow’r;
And He will walk beside you however dark the hour.
He understands your longing,
Your deepest grief he shares;
Then let Him bear your burden,
He understands, and cares.
Can you believe God understands your pain?
