Can you imagine the Lord having anything to do with our pain? The lame, the blind, the ongoing issue with blood-all can be used to display the glory of God. Imagine that! Let’s see what the Lord has to say about it:
Let’s start here: suffering is a part of being in this world. Our aches and pains are par for the course. Also, some of our issues are straight consequences of our sin. As children of God, we are absolutely forgiven-hallelujah!-but there are still natural consequences to our sinful actions.
But this does not negate the absolute fact that we can still see the manifestations of God’s amazing work in our lives! The man with the issue of blindness became the very indication that Jesus was here and present. His healing is the Lord’s amazing handiwork! His recovery likely brought someone else to Christ.
Our pains serve as an opportunity to testify about the goodness of God. Listen, we are not oblivious to the fact that pain is tough and troubling, but fret not-the Master has a plan for your pain.
Pain will not win. Pain is not the end. Pain has been defeated, Amen?! Our troubles and trials is an opportunity for Christ to be magnified and glorified. His plan for our life may involve pain-but pain is not our purpose nor it is our final promise!
Our pain is a part of His plan-His plan to show the world that He is Lord, His plan to demonstrate to us that we are more than a conqueror, His plan to show us that we are overcomer, and His plan to prove that we are victorious!
Peace and Blessings
