The Problem of Pain




There will always be pain in our bodies, pain in our hearts, pain in our minds. In fact, pain is an integral part of our lives. It is how we react to pain that determines our standing with the Lord. If we blame Him for all the pains that we go through, then we miss the whole point. Pain is the instrument of God to make us closer to Him. If we cannot endure the temporary pain that we are experiencing right now, think of how much we can endure the pain of losing God and heaven for all eternity. Or think of how much we can endure the scorching flames of hell that will sear our very souls forevermore. Think about that! "Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life." (Matthew 25: 46).

But God is so good and merciful. He will not give us any pain, any trial, nor any sorrow that we cannot overcome. Because together with the pain, trial or sorrow, He will give us His amazing grace (a tremendous spiritual force of comfort and deliverance) to overcome all these. As we emerge triumphant over the pains, trials or sorrows, then we become stronger, more patient and more compassionate towards those who are undergoing similar experiences in life. As we have been comforted by the Holy Spirit, so shall we become conduits of God's graces and blessings to those who are in distress. NOW YOU UNDERSTAND WHY YOU HAVE TO ENDURE YOUR PAIN. CHEER UP! THERE IS ALWAYS LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL. SMILE. GOD LOVES YOU NO MATTER WHAT!

"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." (2 Corinthians 12: 9a)

Hi! I'm Grace said...

This is a very inspring post, brother Mel. Lately, I had been into different kind of pain, but I was thinking that this it was just temporary, what matters most will be "the heavenly place where there is no more pain or tears.)

Hello, Mel! :-)

A close friend once told me that (emotional) pain has taught her to be numb. She doesn't cry anymore (was she for real)? She said she's mastered the art of ceasing to care. I wondered if that was a good thing. Does being oblivious or immune to torment actually make you a better person? But to successfully shun pain and remain numb means you choose not to care about the circumstances, nor even those who persistently hurt you regardless of the fact that they're dear to you or not, right? It means you've decided not to give a damn.

I guess that's just not how it works for me. I prefer to feel the pain and look it straight in the eye, draw the lessons and continually learn how to forgive. Each tine I shed a tear, I become a better Christian.

Hi Grace,
Although we may be experiencing pain, we should focus instead on the promise of God that by the stripes of Jesus we are healed. God is the healer. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Hi Purple Energy,
I would appreciate it very much if you leave the answer to comments to me. You may answer comments on your blog. God bless.

Hi Kate,
The best thing is to surrender everything to God including pain of all kinds. God will always make a way even when there seems to be no way. It is not denial of pain or sublimating the pain by our own conscious efforts but offering the pain as an offering to God. In time we will find the pain to have left us just like that. Faith is the key to this. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Hi Tey,
God does not give us pain except when it will serve His divine purpose for us. Don't worry. God always gives sufficient grace for us to overcome all pains in our lives and in the process we become better persons able to serve Him in our ministry in life. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.
