“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”(2 Corinthians 12:9 ESV)
“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”(Revelation 21:4 ESV)
There are all kinds of pain. Physical and mental pain. Physical pain hurts but so does mental pain.
I was watching a TV show yesterday while crocheting a Christmas gift. The question was asked, “Do you think Jesus feared pain when He died on the cross?”
What do you think? I don’t think He feared anything, let alone the pain of dying on the cross.
Pain comes and goes. Most days I am mostly pain free. But the days when pain hits can be hard. The worst pain I have felt physically was from a kidney stone. They hurt. The worst mental pain was when mom went to heaven. I know she is happy but I still miss her daily.
Physical pain is easier to heal than mental pain. But there is an easy solution to all kinds of pain. God. God is our source of all healing. All we have to do is ask and then have faith to believe we are healed.
I don’t know how many times I have heard, “Well I guess God doesn’t want me healed because I’m no better than before I was prayed for.” That is not a true statement. God wants us healed and whole. We got healed, we either didn’t believe God could heal us or we let go of our healing. We have to hold onto our healing. Yes Pastor, I have been listening even though it doesn’t always look like it.
Keep believing. Don’t stop believing. Don’t let the devil steal your healing. Or do you like living in pain all the time? I sure don’t. You ask why I have pain if I believe. I am healed. It just hasn’t manifested yet but it will.
Have a great day and keep believing.
