Who likes pain? No one wants to go thru it. Who gets up one day and says, I want to see how much pain I can find today? Sometimes, God uses pain and uncomfortable situations to mold His children. Although times of happiness are wonderful, times of pain and suffering sometimes produce more growth.
Pain can sometimes highlight parts of our lives that try to act independently of God. If we have areas of our life that have not been surrendered to Him, they may hinder our Father’s purpose for us. God will sometimes use our circumstances and discomfort to reveal how dependent on Him we truly are.
If you really want to begin to move from pain to power, trust Jesus enough to pray to Him. Challenge any areas in your life that are not in complete submission to the will of the Father.
