My Pain His Pain… Part I

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.

  1. Thank you for your post I Pray it is helpful to many. I hope you don’t mind but I shared with all my friends also.

    Sometimes pain is so strong bearing it is questionable the knowledge that Jesus suffered in every way we suffer, with the added knowledge that he sits at the right had of God inter-seeding for us is the ONLY thing that gives hope and strength to hold on through the pain to get to the other side where healing for my heart through his truth is found

    Thank God for sending us your son to suffer so he is acquainted with my suffering

    Thank you Bob. It is comforting to know we have a God who not only took away our sin when He went to the cross, but He also knows and understands our experiences of heartaches and hardships. I then know I can trust Him to help me, believing He wants what is good and best for me. He loves me that much. He will help me go through the process of each trial to grow and get to the other side. Life is truly better when we’ve released the pain and junk to HIm and embrace the life He alone can give in healing our hearts.
