Heartache & Pain is what many people living in the world experience within and around and most would declare it unimaginable or indescribable. This may be death of a loved one, affliction, persecution, jailed, sickness, rejection, failure, loss or nothing just ever seems to go right.
When heartache & pain strikes it drives you into the depths of your mind, soul and spirit within. It also demolishes your world of living, friends, security, mind, family and there are few people or volunteers willing to aid or help in time of your troubles. So what do you do? There are really only two choices:
- Choose to turn to YHWH GOD the Creator of all things
- Or go it alone.
Heartache & pain for me lasted over a decade of thick, dark clouds, no matter what I attempted. This led to only seeking YHWH GOD, being still, sit in silence & solitude, rise, pray, weep, pressing forward daily within of YHWH. Yet, it seemed affliction, sorrow and shame attacked daily. I then realized, this is how the chosen are refined and prepared within. You/I are being CHOSEN as firstfruits of what is to come of world. Nothing has changed. YE ARE THE TEMPLE OF THE LIVING GOD. So God is testing, transforming, growing and shaping my/your temple and destiny. I’ve also learned if GOD BE FOR ME/US who can be against me/us? I am also learning YHWH is purifying and loving me/us through our suffering on His potters wheel and shaping our clay into His precious miracle of now and eternity. Try reading and preaching His Word back to ELOHIM daily, then hold onto His promises within. Ponder this question, how has heartache and pain been for you?
Sometimes YHWH GOD afflicts us for His Glory
I/We are not alone! YHWH GOD is still in universal control. What many governments, religions & denominations fail to address or support are afflicted people. Look at Africa as a continent YHWH has blessed them with gold, silver and diamonds yet most go hungry and impoverished. Why? How much fake AID and charities does it take to feed and rescue colorful people of Africa? India and the middle East even China are no different. Religions and denominations make little change in a world of sin, war, hunger and poverty. On Sabbath or Sunday the pews of religions & denominations are bulging with afflicted people. When you look at world poverty and hunger stats one has to truly think and pray out loud. The Bible is also prophetic books of suffering and there is a Creator God who see’s and knows the beginning and the end of all things. [Revelation 22:13] Our faith must be steadfast! We are to be as the Children of Israel [not of map] not of the world but His Kingdom within.
More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. [Romans 5:3-5]
The riches of this world is not ‘things’ or gold or diamonds but His Kingdom within. Thus, sometimes YHWH GOD allows affliction and suffering for humans to acknowledge who is wisdom, Creator and eternal. He allows it only to transform and bless us within and around. The book of JOB is one example and he was a righteous godly Man. Yet through everything JOB suffered or encountered from death of his family, loss of wealth, affliction, pain, sickness, shame, rejection and humiliation, JOB still trusted YHWH GOD within. This is the only remedy and fruitful way! This is the only solution to my/your testimony. I wish I could say it is easy but no it is hard. It takes every ounce of faith, trust, obedience, hope and love to prevail as JOB. So what do you do when you try to act and do as JOB and still you fail? Keep studying, praying, weeping at the altar of YHWH GOD through His Holy Spirit until you get a breakthrough like Jabez or Ruth. They were also afflicted all for the glory of YHWH GOD. You see, YHWH GOD has to test and prepare His children out of world and the things of this world into His Kingdom within. [Luke 17:21] and [1 John 2 15-17]
So Glad I Made It – I Made It Through
The above words are words of triumph when you are going through heartache and pain you cannot wait to sing or witness. Indeed, when you look back and see how many times you should have lost your mind, been dead or forsaken yet YHWH GOD has saved you supernaturally of his hand. Be encouraged for all children of YHWH GOD are born to suffer. It is stated:
And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. [1 Peter 5:10]
In conclusion, I pray the above motivational and spiritual words will keep you encouraged, loved and supported for even the only begotten Son of the Most High Yahshuah the Christ suffered unto righteousness. I Shall Obey Anyway.
