Mark 9:42 "And If Anyone Causes One Of These Little Ones Who Believe In Me To Sin, It Would Be Better For Him To Be Thrown Into The Sea With A Large Millstone Tied Around His Neck.
Pain pushes against us. Sometimes pain pushes us to do what we do not want to do. To compound our sin problem, satanic evil in the form of sin also pushes against us to tempt us to do what God does not want us to do. When you confront the truth about what pain and sin do to you then you have an opportunity to push back rather than becoming a helpless victim. Both pain and sin are trying to push use away from God. Pain and sin both have the same source…Satan. What are we to do? We push back against pain and sin by faithfully praying. When we pray, we may be in agony from the attacks seeking to destroy us. However, when we pray, God hears us and He responds. We are also to use experts like doctors, counselors, and advisors to help us push back. We are not to give up or give in when we pray. We must resolve to never give up our faith in God.
