“You do not know the beginning from the end, but I do. Redemption is much more than you think, and My mercy is more than you can know. I am the Lord, and I know how to redeem.
What about the wells dug in your life? Would you trade any of the pain in your life for the riches of the wells that I have dug in your life? Would you trade anything in your life for how the pain has taught you about Me? The wells dug by pain run deep with the knowledge of Me and the reality of My love for you.
Have I not redeemed your pain 100 fold and replaced it with Me?
Can I not do the same for those you love that are in pain? You can not save them or shield them from pain. Step aside; I am the Lord. Step aside and let pain do its work.
Speak hope and truth, for all will be well. I, the Lord, never change, even in pain. Have I not said that all will work together for good? That is faith, do not speak or think otherwise.”
God told me a long time ago that if I embrace the pain in my life and allow myself to be taught by it, that He would use my words to set people free.
I pray these words will set you free and bring peace in the midst of pain. Pain really does have a purpose.
