The medical and research industry has made leaps and bounds in discovering and producing products that will reduce our physical pains. Pain is usually an indicator that something is wrong in our bodies and before we seek pain medications we should find out why we have that pain. Advancements in diagnosing physical and medical problem help the doctors to determine the underlying problems of your pain.
Some pain is associated with aging or diseases that cannot be healed and often there is little to no relief. Even if pain killers are prescribed, you end up on a roller coaster ride, having to take these medications every few hours during the day and/or night. Sadly a lot of these medications have long term side effects that could cause worse problems than the pain you are experiencing. Many people today are researching and finding natural ways to relieve their pain.
Reducing pain makes it easier to get through each day but eliminating it completely may not be a very good idea as increased pain can indicate that a condition has gotten worse or a new condition has presented itself. Pain medications have also been responsible for addictions that people normally wouldn’t have and have been the causes of many drug overdose deaths.
In the spiritual/emotional realm of our lives, we experience other pains such as guilt, fear, anxiety, depression, rage and bitterness. They have discovered and created drugs to numb these types of pain, many of which affect your thinking processes and numb you to what is really happening around you. Some of them are very successful in taking away most emotional responses, leaving you feeling like a zombie of sorts.
In the John Hagee prophecy bible, on page 743, he addresses these types of pain and whether there is any value to having these pains. He says that most of Society, today considers any kind of these pains as bad and must be abolished for a person to remain healthy. Take at look at what he says.
“True guilt indicates a conscience sensitive to sin. Fear prepares for a flight from danger or effort to overcome an obstacle. Anxiety indicates a person needs to reassess his trust in God. Depression is a warning that life has become a burden and either the weight needs to be lightened or help is needed to bear it. Rage suggests that a person has lost perspective and begun taking too much of life as a personal attack. Bitterness means that rage is hardening into a defensive, hostile attitude toward people and circumstances.”
“These pains, like their physical counterparts, indicate that something is wrong. Action needs to be taken to alleviate these pains and get life back into a forgiven, peaceful, hopeful, patient and loving zone. Without the pains we couldn’t take advantage of the pleasures God gives us.”
My life has been a roller coaster ride of pain, starting in early childhood and continuing on through my life now, both emotional, spiritual and physical. But I have learned over the years to pay attention to that pain. If I have a new pain, I don’t automatically run for a pain killer. I assess it. Where is it at, how long does it last, does it seem to continue? I also research it to see if it is related to any of the medical conditions I already have and if necessary, if the pain lingers, I see the doctor.
But when it comes to my spiritual pain, that is another matter. I’ve learned some valuable lessons about my spiritual pain. I’m not perfect, nor will I ever be. I experience all of the emotional/spiritual pains described above at different times in my life and I have learned that I need to face them head-on.
When I feel those pains coming on, I contact my healer to help me through them. He is always on call, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and you don’t have to leave a message with his answering service and wait for him to call you back. He is always taking on new patients and the fee is simple. It won’t cost you an arm and a leg and you won’t have to take a bunch of medications, but it will take a commitment on your part. His name is Jesus.
Psalm 50:15 Call to me in times of trouble. I will save you, and you will honor me.”
Revelations 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
