My Pain His Pain
Remember the famous physical workout saying “No Pain/No Gain”? Here we will address the processing of pain so our “gain” is more freedom.
He Knows My Pain
Every single negative emotion we ever feel (sufferings), Jesus has experienced the same! The Bible says that “We do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have One who has been tempted in every way, just as we are; yet without sin. (Hebrews 4:15)
My Pain His Pain
Let’s see, Jesus’ pain? Firstly, perhaps village shame due to secular perception of His conception. In their eyes He was illegitimate! Secondly, Joseph, His dad died probably during His teen years giving Him a sense of abandonment. Thirdly, His adult rejection is clearly documented in the passion story of His arrest, trial, scourging, and crucifixion. Isaiah 53:3,4 uses words describing Jesus as “despised”, “rejected”, “sorrows”, “grief”, “smitten”, and “afflicted”. Do you ever feel any of those?
Identifying My Pain
Let’s take a practical exercise to help you identify and release your pain to become His pain!
- Choose a day, why not today?
- Start your day with a blank sheet of paper.
- Every time you feel a negative emotion, log it in.
- At the end of that day, observe how many negative emotions you carried that day.
That was the identification process, now let’s look into the release process.
I Peter 5:7 says “casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.”
Displacing My Pain
You were not created to carry that load of burden and worry! You were created for intimacy with God. You cannot have intimacy with God while carrying on your back all the weight of your list.
