The Ministry of Pain

“…No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it…” Hebrews 12:11 NIV (italics and emphasis mine)

A man recently almost bled to death after stepping on a nail unaware as his leg was paralyzed. Common headache could be a symptom that something is not quite right in our body…don’t be quick to treat headache with pain killers, first find out why—overwork, lack of sleep, stress, malaria, tumor? The rod of correction (Prov 22:15), discipline, instill pains but saves life—even from hell (Prov 23:13,14).

Contrary to contemporary teachings, pain is a good thing. The bible says we understand the spiritual things from the natural. In the natural pain alert us of existence of anomaly in the body, injury, pain communicates to us. Listen to your pain closely my friend, it is talking to you; telling you what you care about needs fixing, what you should stop or start doing. Pain is your closest ally, work with him not against him.
