Pain brings us closer to God, it makes us seek him. You can get out of pain and suffering and turn it into something beautiful and good. Suffering is a gateway to Heaven. Without suffering we cannot see miracles.
God wants us to have true happiness. He wants us to know joy, and if we don’t have pain and suffering how could we know what that is. That’s why I think and know why we have pain and suffering.
“I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.” Psalms 27:13-14
“This is what the Lord says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s.”2 Chronicles 20:15
Father in Heaven, Your word tells me that Your son is able to save (heal and preserve) those who come to You, because You always live to intercede for them. I know that I shall be healed from my pain because Your son works on my behalf for my healing. I thank You for the continuous work that You do to ensure that I can be made whole through You, Amen.289
