The Promise/Plan Beyond The Pain

The best example that we have to show a promise executed through pain, is the death and resurrection of Christ.

“He was beaten, he was tortured, but he didn’t say a word.  Like a lamb taken to be slaughtered and like a sheep being sheared, he took it all in silence.  Justice miscarried, and he was led off- and did anyone really know what was happening?  He died  without a thought for his own welfare, beaten bloody for the sins of my people.  They buried him with the wicked, threw him in a grave with a rich man, Even though he’d never hurt a soul or said one word that wasn’t true.  Still, it’s what God had in mind all along, to crush him with painThe plan was that he give himself as an offering for sin so that he’d see life come from it-life, life, and more life.  And God’s plan will deeply prosper through him.  Out of that terrible travail of soul, he’ll see that it’s worth it and be glad he did it…”

Reading this scripture we can see that Christ went through immense pain in order to see the promise of salvation and our abundant life come to fruition through his death and resurrection.

Through this example we can take rest in knowing that whatever pain we go through there is a PLAN beyond it.  Trust God, don’t let go.  God will equip you and guide your steps.  Psalms says that God’s “word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” (Psalm 119:105 KJV)

If God has given you a dream and you are going through a very difficult time right now and you can’t see through the tears, allow God’s word to be your light.  Nothing is impossible with God.  All you need is one encounter, one meeting that can change your whole life.  If God spoke something to you BELIEVE IT!  His track record is flawless, what he has begun he will absolutely finish, he is faithful and never fails.  Sometimes things don’t come the way we would like them to or in our timing, but rest in the Lord and know he will never leave you nor forsake you.  He knows what’s best and is skillfully shaping you as you move through your destiny in him.  Lean to his wisdom.  When he is first in your life and you rely on his guidance, you can’t go wrong.  Whatever you are going through will work out for the best.

 

“He has sent me to tell those who mourn that the time of the Lord’s favor has come, and with it, the day of God’s anger against their enemies.  To all who mourn in Israel, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair….”  (Isaiah 61:2-3 NLT)

 

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all they ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.  Be not wise in thine own eyes:  fear the Lord, and depart from evil.”  (Proverbs 3:5-7 KJV)

 

“This is my comfort in my affliction:  for thy word hath quickened me.” (Psalm 119:50 KJV)
