Life’s Test: Pain, Loss, Heartaches

When a man suffers misfortune, and loss, that is when you really know who your friends truly are. And how Christianly many speaks but do not act! Many will say very unkind words to you, treat you unkindly, gather others around them to speak more evil of you. And spread untruth about your situation!

Salt will be added to your injuries. This is the experience of brother Job, and many brothers and sisters even today.

Job 16:19 Even now my witness is in heaven; my advocate is on high. 20 My intercessor is my friend as my eyes pour out tears to God;

“The very same God that spins things in orbit
Runs to the weary, the wern and the weak
And the same gentle hands that hold me when I’m broken
They conquered death to bring me victory”

Test will come in life. Our faith, love and hope in the Lord will be tested! This is a guarantee, however my prayer for you is that you will not sin against God in your speech. Don’t lose faith!

Brother Job knew he was blameless, he could not understand why what happened to him happened, yet he had hope in God. But his friends? They were a whole lot different from what he expected. No word of encouragement or comfort but accusations.

This here sounds more like Job thinking, trying to justify what is happening to him, finding no cause, and must have blurted out Job 16:17 yet my hands have been free of violence and my prayer is pure. I mean Lord! You know me! Why all these?

Brothers and sisters suffering any kind of loss, heartaches, or contrariness of life. Please note that God is Sovereign, He knows what you are going through and He will give you respite.

I pray God’s strength be made manifest in your weakness. May His love envelope you. May the light of His countenance warm your heart. God is God on the mountain, as He is God on the valley, hills, plains, and rough places. He is Sovereign! And He cares for you!

Be comforted friends as brother Job was and said in Job 16:19 Even now your witness is in heaven; your advocate is on high. 20 your intercessor is your friend as you pour out your fears, heartaches and tears to God.

Shalom!

Your Aches Is Profit

Just a friendly reminder!

Do not let anyone profit out of your fear, aches, pain, hurt, bondage, and so on! Believe it or not your heartaches is profiting someone! You have to let it go tonight. Let everything that has held you bound go with this season. Its a new day in the morning. Make the best of it!

I was listening to T. D. Jakes “Woman! Thou Hath Loosed” again and felt I should remind someone about it. Your bondage to sin, fear, low self esteem, trauma, and so on is profiting someone and they don’t want you to be loosed. Someone is laying that bed of “not enough”,not worthy”, “still broken”, “poverty stricken” etc so nicely and comfortably looking to entice you and keep you in perpetual bondage. Don’t take the bait!

You have been set free from fear, pain, aches, sickness, lack, trauma, and whatsoever it is that has plagued you! Declare this, ” I am set free by the blood of Jesus – Revelation 12:11″ I am a new creation, old things are gone, I am brand new” – 2 Corinthians 5:17

Acts 16:16 Now it happened, as we went to prayer, that a certain slave girl possessed with a spirit of divination met us, who brought her masters much profit by .fortune-telling. 17 This girl followed Paul and us, and cried out, saying, “These men are the servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to us the way of salvation.” 18 And this she did for many days.

But Paul, greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.” And he came out that very hour. 19 But when her masters saw that their hope of profit was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace to the authorities.

This slave girl under bondage of divination was profiting her master so immensely that when this evil spirit was sent away by Paul, he had to lie about Paul and Silas to get him out of the way – Acts 16:16-24. The wicked ain’t playing, you must not be slack with your destiny!

You must resist the devil and it will flee. Hold unto God’s word for your life. The Scriptures says him/her whom the Son of God has set free is free indeed – John 8:36. Do not subject yourself to bondage again this new year. Take charge of destiny.

Shalom! Shalom!

Bleeding! Male and Female!

Mark 5:25 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. 26 She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse. 27 When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, 28 because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.” 29 Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering.

Like this woman, many of us, male and female are bleeding where eyes cannot see. We are bleeding in our hearts, and have tried many remedies but none have been able to cure us. We have seen many doctors, counselors, we have bent backwards and forward just to ease the pain but still no remedies. We have done all that we know and are still hurting!

Oh, how my heart bleeds due to betrayal, pain of lost companions, marriages, yours may be pregnancies after pregnancies, financial loss, grief, lonesomeness. Oh, how some of us have bleed out of all the relationships we have ever known. Our parents and siblings kept away from us, restricted, at best at arms lent for so many years.

We have worked on ourselves to somehow be accepted, approved, allowed, accommodated, but still bleeding, no remedies. We can hardly have a loved one around us. The stench of our conditions keeps them away. No one want to be seen near us, many do not want to be associated with us. Our hearts are bleeding! Lord! Will you please heal this we have cried?

And we want that loving touch, we crave the companionship, relationship, we do not want to be alone, but this blood! Pain? Hurts? Loss? The life blood, the essence of life, dripping away, weakening our hearts, our purse. We do not want to drift to oblivion so we seek out one last solution for we have heard and faith has arisen in us. Mark 5:28

Here comes Jesus friends, the solution bearer. He can heal every hurting heart. He can touch you where no other hand can go. He is ever present, ever faithful, always constant, he never sleeps, he never slumbers, only him can stop the bleeding, the pain deep within. Trust him and reach out!

Friends, we do need to reach out in faith to touch the helm of His garment. Mark 5:27

Some of us need to believe in love again! 🙂 There are still good people out there trust me! 🙂 I mean, I believe so!

Whatever ailment we have, there is healing, solution to our hurting heart, body, relationship, pocket, and much more.

Lord Jesus we reach out to you in faith today. We stretch out our hands to touch your garment, please heal us, stop this blood, you know what blood we are all talking about. You know where we all are bleeding from. That pain no one knows about, and the ones everyone knows about, heal it all Father in Jesus name.

Thank you Lord Jesus!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
