Good Tuesday morning healing team!!
Isn’t it nice weather this morning? It was 60 degree F this morning. Fall is here. Ladies and Gentelemen, shall we welcome, FALL!!
I received an email from a friend yesterday with attachment of Jack Graham’s Daily words. It was titled “Understanding God’s purpose in your pain“.
Here at my office, we deal with pain everyday, whether is is physical pain, emotional pain and spiritual pain, we have all kinds of pain here.
What if I said there is purpose in your pain? Interesting right? Without further delay, may I welcome Jack Graham.
Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed.
1 Peter 4:12-13
C. S. Lewis, the very astu te Oxford professor and writer of the classic children’s series, The Chronicles of Narnia, was well acquainted with grief in his life. His mother died at a fairly young age, as did his wife. And some of Lewis’ most prolific thoughts were written during his time of grieving for his wife.
In his book, The Problem of Pain, Lewis wrote, “We can ignore even pleasure. But pain insists upon being attended to. God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: it is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world.”
Now, I don’t know about you, but I don’t like going through pain. Yet, as Lewis proclaimed, God often allows us to experience emotional and physical hardship because it’s in those times that we actually hear His voice the clearest. It’s our pain that allows us to connect with God on a whole new level.
This fact can give us such comfort… to know that in Christ, God has a purpose for our pain that goes far beyond our immediate experience. So whatever pain you may be facing today, seek God. Ask Him to speak to you and give your pain a purpose for your good and His glory!
IN TIMES OF PAIN, SEEK GOD AND ASK HIM TO REVEAL HIMSELF ANEW TO YOU.
I am sure that you know someone in some kind of pain right now and they need to hear this. Just kindly forward this message along with your warms words.
Thank you very much for allowing me to share this with you.
Have a great week!
