Although life has its share of suffering it too has alot to enjoy. I think you're coming from an angle that assumes that all of humanity's experiences lead to the conclusion that we are alone and powerless. Perhaps death instead is a dedifferentiation, where we lose our individuality, and become one with everything a part of the Earth. Perhaps the fear of death for many comes from not having lived their life fully how they wanted to.
In regards to power there are plenty of ways one has power. I don't mean to insinuate power over another person or some sort of superpower that really only exists in fantasy. I mean Carlos Castinida's mystical Rings of Power. belief altering what is real, from knowledge comes power, and also power as a political concept epitomized in "power to the people", which insinuates a shared sort of power with others that reinforces each other instead of controlling and/or destroying.
On a different note, desire doesn't lead to suffering imho, they're not a dichotomy. Desire (or joy or pleasure) and suffering occur regardless of the quantity (as if these feelings are measurable in the first place) of either. Some people definitely have it harder than others for whatever combination of reasons. Some suffering isn't a fact of life, its the result of a fucked-up society with so many issues: the imbalance of power, the destruction of nature, alienation, etc. that we as individuals, with our own problems, are an example of. If you study anthropology you'll find that there are past societies that don't have the high degree and same kinds of suffering that our supposedly advanced society has today.
Anyways, I kind of dodged the God question, i'm no theologian. If God is all, then its every one of us already, each human individual, tree, and chatty squirrel, so God already experiences all life's pleasures and suffering. if God is the Christian, Muslim, Jewish, or Catholic God, then I don't know, is it the same? Maybe like Mangerfoot said. In a way the idea is what Jesus was.
