“News about him spread all over Syria, and people brought to him all who were ill with various diseases, those suffering severe pain, the demon-possessed, those having seizures, and the paralyzed; and he healed them” Matthew 4:24 NIV
Read: Matthew 4:23-25
Injuries can bring on immediate and horrible pain. Illnesses can also wreck havoc with our bodies. People across our nation have grown dependent upon pain killers once taken for pain. Now, the pain is the addiction to the pain killers.
These are real pains, but the emotional pain is more than many feel they can deal with. Our mind is sometimes weaker than our bodies. Mental illness and depression are common place brought on by divorce, financial problems and illnesses.
While physical and emotional pains are real destroyers, the greatest pain is spiritual pain. The pain of separation from your Creator is the destroyer of eternal life. Knowing GOD is always there is an undeniable fact. Yet, so many turn to worldly false solutions and struggle to find their SAVIOUR when the physical and emotional pains set in.
Spiritual pain has to be offset with understanding all our spiritual blessings. Yes, even in the worst of times we can find times of joy. When we need GOD the most, HE is there for us. GOD is right where HE has always been; keeping HIS promise to us.
Get rid of the pain. Get GOD.
Today’s prayer: “Thank YOU, GOD, for always being there for me in all my times of pain. Help me to come to YOU rather than suffer in the pains of this world. Amen.”
