Abstract: The problem of suffering is a multifaceted one. It has philosophical, psychological and theological dimensions. Philosophically it gives a rational explanation to the existence of God and suffering in the world. Psychologically it deals with how to comfort those who suffer hurt which might make them to develop a dislike for God. Theologically it has to do with the question believers in God ask when they go through suffering. In this paper the author posits, from a theological perspective that, God does not take delight in the sufferings of his people; he wrestles with the shortcomings/sufferings of his people, an activity of him we cannot fully understand. Thus when believers suffer, they must stand firm and depend on God.
