Where is Father God in Time of Pain?
When problem arise and some unexplainable and painful things happen in our lives, it is indeed impossible not to ask the Lord why. Thousands of questions came out asking God why did He allow this unbearable things to happen. Did He not reveal Himself to be merciful, loving and compassionate God? Surely, most of us want to know why God would allow this to be part of our lives.
I believe God doesn’t want His children to experience painful and miserable life. He doesn’t enjoy seeing us hurt. As a loving and affectionate Father, He only wants the best for His sons and daughters. He wants us to grow in every aspect of our lives, and to know who He is as our Father and God. For this very reason, the Father allows suffering and tribulations to occur in our very lives, because only through these difficult experiences that He can mold and shape us to become the best persons that we can be.
The Apostle Paul said, “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10) This passage tells us that we are God’s workmanship, meaning handiwork; like the sculptor converting the plain wood into an image of masterpiece. If we are hurting because of a certain situation, don’t panic, nor react negatively, because God is at work in us. He is converting your plain soul into the image of His Son. In time of trials and distresses, don’t be afraid, God is not hiding Himself nor giving up on you. He loves you and He is always there, willing to walk with you side by side.
Therefore, be on guard in time of pain. The Father is with you and He is always at work to change you to be more and more like His Holy Son Jesus Christ as we are changed into His glorious image.
Happy Father’s Day and God bless you all!
