Look Beyond Your Pain

Pain is proof that an enemy exists. Adversity reminds us that we are in a fierce battle against the forces of darkness. But whatever challenges you are facing today, be rest assured in the Lord that they will pass. Your pain will pass. Your adversity will subside. The bible says, “…Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning” (Psalm 30:5).

Whatever trouble you are currently seeing with your physical eyes is temporary. But whatever you can see through your eyes of faith is a possibility in your future. Therefore it is vital that you look beyond your pain. See through the eye of faith. Picture the exceedingly great reward at the other side of your adversity. Something extraordinary is being carved out from your pain. Amazing testimonies are being birthed by Heaven in your adversity. There is purpose in your pain. There are advantages in your adversity. Your challenges are impregnated with life changing and favourable changes.

The same way Jesus’ crucifixion preceded His resurrection, your adversity is preceding your unprecedented increase. Joseph had to be thrown down the pit before he climbed up and was enthroned in Egypt. The only way to escape Egypt is to picture Canaan.  Choose to picture opportunities in your pain. Visualise a promotion in your ordeal. Every adversity is an opportunity for your advancement. Promotion is concealed in the pain you are currently feeling.

Fix your eyes and thoughts on Jesus. He is right there with you in your darkest hour (Isaiah 43:2). Refuse to be defeated by your adversity. Focus on the promises of God concerning you. If you can stay focused on God, you can come out of your troubles victoriously. Your present hardship is a passageway to your glorious inheritance.

“For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:17-18
