Power of Suffering unless we all suffer or experience pain and gain there is no profit, education or joy. Yet, most people when they teach or hear the word suffering or pain to gain the first thing they want to do is hide, ignore or run. Even with the Bible most people do not like reading it for pain to gain or the deep parables, trials, laws or sufferings taught. But pain or suffering like studying, training, mining or trials is where your testimony, treasure or gold is stored.
Have you ever seen or known an athlete to be chosen for the national or Olympics team and never suffered training in pain to gain and become fit, in shape or perform their best? How about studying for a professional exam without going through the preliminary educational process from Kindergarten to College or University? In the bible all is pain and gain like anything else worth fighting or living for.
SUFFERING IS ALWAYS REWARDING
Suffering is pain and gain that always leads to a reward. If you think about it, we were all born into this world through pain and suffering resulting in smiles, joy, failure, pain and reward even for a day or year. Your Mother carried you around for about 40 weeks almost one year. That is a long-time to be carrying anything around in your stomach and then you have to work, breathe and push that grown child out of pain of womb, which is suffering unto joy in action. This is proof pain and gain or suffering is rewarding! Even if it results in loss or termination the TRUTH is you cannot say it did not make you, your marriage or partner stronger.
Most trials, failures, risks and disappointments in life have made us wiser and stronger. Even if we take it negatively and become bitter or angry over time, one will learn unless we exercise pain and gain or forgive and forget we do more damage within. This is probably the reason why we go through or need such tests. This may sound weird but just think, pain and gain or suffering is testimonial PROOF of your faith, focus, belief, trust, mental, spiritual and intellectual mindset. If you say “I Hate Suffering” or “Why does God allow Suffering?” The answer to that is without suffering, how would you or God know who is faithful, loving, responsible, good or evil and can you or God trust what is being said and done? I would go as far as saying most relationships and marriages fail because they are NOT prepared to suffer together even though in marriage they have both vowed before GOD: “For better or worse.” Is God deaf or blind? No.
If a man vows a vow to the Lord, or swears an oath to bind himself by a pledge, he shall not break his word. He shall do according to all that proceeds out of his mouth. – Numbers 30:2
How many times throughout your life have you heard the words: “I Love You” and they still left you for another man or woman or cursed your name or heart to the ground? Yet still you have learned within and grown stronger and wiser to live alone or more secure in a relationship.
Even when YHWH GOD tries you pain and gain like JOB in the Bible beyond your wildest dreams, still count it all JOY. Indeed, it may not look or feel like JOY but watch and see it result in JOY if you relax, sit, chill, humble yourself and give praise to the Creator who has all power in Heaven and Earth and can heal and reward all people and living things. All tests are for reasons of deciding how focus, serious or determined we really are within. I remember due to not attending University until a mature student and not sitting an exam in ten years I failed six exams in my 1st year of university. Yet, I pain and gain, prayed and endured and went on to complete my Degree with Hon’s. What I learned was anyone can past the pain and gain test if they try to understand why they are failing or keep resitting the same tests, failures, trials, results or exams in life.
To be honest, I have always hated tests, exams and questionnaires even to this day. I love to type not write and be as genius and creative as possible. I think and believe limitless! YHWH GOD has tested, loved and taught me more than any human I have met. I have learned in this life that world intelligence is a myth. The only intelligence worth studying and passing is ‘spiritual‘ biblical lessons of eternal Kingdom life within. [Luke 17:21]
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. – James 1:5
Do You Teach Your Child or Children God Within?
The biggest deposit of life and treasure is to teach your child about good, love and God within. This is not religious or denominational. This is not merely taking them to a religious or denominational church and hoping the sermon or sermons even after years will make your child wise. In fact, real CHURCH is the Kingdom within [Luke 17:21]. So, if you want to educate and train up your child or teen in the right way NOT of world [1 John 2: 15-17] but of YHWH GOD within, one has to begin with sitting and reading His Word from Genesis to Revelation slowly…with focus and intent on eating every Word like daily bread.
My Mother is a devoted, praying Sabbath keeping Christian Woman. I grew up as child in the Adventist Church. I know what it is like to play football, get selected for the school Team and when matches were playing on Saturday I had to tell the Football Coach: “I cannot play I go to Church” As a Teen every interview I attended I would openly declare: “I don’t work Saturday’s I go to Church” No, don’t feel sorry for me. I have NEVER found it to be a disadvantage. In fact, my resume even today stands strong and has PLC and blue-chip companies to boast of YHWH GOD. I can also testify and say when I rebelled and conducted business on the Sabbath I lost everything. Teach your child that world is futile, weak and temporary and the Kingdom of YHWH within is eternal and generously, supernaturally rewarding.
In conclusion, without pain and gain or suffering how will one know what they or YHWH GOD can do? Yes, pain and gain or suffering is hard, long and oftentimes lonely. Yet it is in those lonely times you get the closest and most of YHWH GOD direct. Not even my Dear Mother who has walked side-by-side with me even into adulthood understands like Mary watching her Son the Christ being hung on the Cross was not death but eternal life for all. In fact, His suffering and our spiritual suffering is guaranteed power over death, world and things of this world.
YHWH GOD has a master plan for each and every one of His Children. If you are not a child of YHWH GOD within you are automatically a child of evil. There are no other choices given unto mankind. I pray and hope that as you endure sufferings of this world you will SMILE at every storm and hold onto the eternal Word, promises and universal love of YHWH GOD within.
In His Service,
