Pain and suffering are unavoidable obstacles Christians have to navigate through, as we attempt to walk the path of Jesus Christ. But you can rest assured that you are not alone in your experience. The One with the nail-scarred hands is always near. If you allowed Him, He would comfort you and teach you in your difficulty.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort those in any problem with the support we receive from God.”(2 Corinthians 1:3-4).2 Corinthians 1:3-4. NIV
Life will have difficulties, but Jesus, who loves us more than life, (“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends, John 15:13.”), is greater than any difficulty anyone might experience.
John 14:27 New International Version (NIV)
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
Whatever you are going through today, do not allow your circumstance to overwhelm you. Jesus knows your problem, and in due time He will lift you out of your mire clay. Take a tip from Job. When he was going through difficult life-changing circumstances, he never stops praying.
Isaiah 43:2: When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you go through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. When you walk through the fire, you will not get scorched, and the flames will not set you ablaze.
“You, LORD, are our Father. We are the clay, and You are the potter. We are all the work of your hand,” (Isaiah 64:8).
