Pain Hurts But Grace is Greater

Life can be painful, discouraging, and disappointing. In terms of giving and receiving; sometimes we’re the grantor and other times we are the grantee. In all cases pain has a way of obscuring our sight and when all we can see is our pain, we will fail to see God. The pain we experience is a natural part of living in a fallen, sin-cursed world. In contrast, pain provides each of us an opportunity to either experience the grace of God or to extend grace to others. Therefore, it behooves us to consider what Paul said: “And He has said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9). So remember in the midst of the pain we endure God is still present and if we keep our eyes on the Perfecter of our faith we will not grow weary nor lose heart (Heb 12:2-3).
