There is Purpose in your Pain

This is one of those sayings that we hear all the time, but we can't deny the truth in it. Every experience of hurt, pain, disappointment, let downs, set backs, failures and so on happened on purpose. There is something in your future awaiting you, that required the lesson you learned through your experienced pain. The pain we experience grows us and makes us stronger. We gain more knowledge of who God is, and how much He really loves us. Our pain humbles us under the hand of God. The trials we face show us why He knows what's best for our lives.

If God didn't allow us to experience the hard times, we would not have the strength we need to walk into our next season. Every new level in glory requires more strength and responsibility. Pain is needed for God to get the glory out of our lives. When we look back at all God has brought us through; it's enough to praise Him for who we are today. If you think about it; pain has shaped us. Pain has given us purpose, or given us strength to walk into the purpose God has for us. Satan wants to see our lives destroyed by our pain; but God has other plans. Every circumstance we face in life is not by chance, but on Purpose.

I will leave you with this scripture,

1 Peter 5:9-10 "Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings. And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast."
