Bible Reading Plan, Pain

When you think of your pains, do you believe that God's grace is sufficient for you? Can you trust in Him to give you strength as you endure your pain?









Oh Lord, please take this pain away from me. I am really suffering from the weight of it all and just do not have the strength to do my daily chores.





Have you ever pleaded with the Lord to lessen your pain? You are not alone, in your struggles.




I finally had to reach out to my gynecologist's office to find out, well, anything. I was starting to feel like I did not matter. Like I am invisible.








I received a message within 2 hours letting me know that the results from my ultrasound looked good. I guess this means no signs of cancer. I was then asked to come in on July 25th to discuss the next steps.




More tests?






All I want is to feel better. I want to be able to sleep at night without having sharp pain in my thigh wake me up several times.




Now, let's look at Paul. He mentions having a thorn in his side that he asks the Lord, three times, to remove. However, the Lord does not remove it, does He? No. He tells Paul that His grace is sufficient for him.




So, when you think of your pains or your thorn, do you believe that God's grace is sufficient for you? Can you trust in Him to give you strength as you endure your pain?




1 Corinthians 12:6-10 NIV 




Even if I should choose to boast, I would not be a fool, because I would be speaking the truth. But I refrain, so no one will think more of me than is warranted by what I do or say, or because of these surpassingly great revelations. Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.







Prayer: 





Dear Father, 



Oh Father, how I suffer. I plead with You to ease my pain. I pray that You will help me to understand that Your grace is sufficient for me and that Your power is made perfect in my weakness. That is why, for Your sake, I will delight in my weaknesses, in insults, hardships, persecutions, and difficulties that I endure. Because I know that when I am weak, then I am strong. In Jesus' name, Amen.
