God Knows

To us the path of each day is always new – we have not passed this way heretofore, and we cannot tell what any hour may bring to us. But He knows all the way, for He went over every inch of it. There is no human experience which Christ does not understand. No suffering can be ours which He did not feel. No wrong can hurt us, but He was hurt far more sorely. Is the burden heavy? His burden was infinitely heavier, for He took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses, and bowed beneath the load of our sins. There is no phase of struggle, of suffering, of pain, of temptation, or of joy with which He is unfamiliar. And knowing thus the way, from having sought it out for Himself, He is able to guide us in it.
