1 Peter 4:10 Each One Should Use Whatever Gift He Has Received To Serve Others, Faithfully Administering God's Grace In Its Various Forms.
Pain is a gift. What?!?!? No! Say it ain't so!!!! How on anyone's earth could pain be a gift?!?! God works His will in mystery. Many times we do not understand anything about the workings of God. We do not understand many times how God uses pain. God does not inflict pain upon us. Pain is inflicted by Satan who is our enemy. Although God does not inflict the pain, God is more than happy to use our pain to make us more of the kind of person He wants us to be. When we hurt, we must keep in mind we are to align our will with God's will. We are to align our will with God's will and be more of the person He would have us be. When we are God's person, even in our pain, God scores ultimate victories through our life. Even in our pain we are to use our pain in whatever way possible "to serve others faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms." Of course serving God in our pain is hard to do. However, would God have you be any other way than a faithful servant in your pain?
