Free From Pain

1 Chronicles 4:9-10Amplified Bible

Jabez was more honorable than his brothers; but his mother named him Jabez, saying, “Because I gave birth to him in pain.” 10 Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, saying, “Oh that You would indeed bless me and enlarge my border [property], and that Your hand would be with me, and You would keep me from evil so that it does not hurt me!” And God granted his request.

When you become a parent, your eyes will be opened to a whole other world. Another world where you realize that your decisions impact your child and yourself as well. When it is just you and bad decisions become a lifestyle, it can be easy to numb the pain. However, when you give birth you realize that some pain cannot be numbed but it must be addressed. That means some relationships have to end, some tears have to be shed, and some lessons have to be learned to provide a better life for your child. Painful decisions that lead to victory seem bleak in the beginning… but in the end the Lord will bless you. When I became pregnant with my daughter the doctor’s told me to terminate her because I would die if I carried her full term. Not only that , people persecuted me and I had no support. My mother’s day was lonely and the pain that I endured cannot even be described. But now, when I look at my daughter Ruth I can say that it was all worth it. Today… view today as your new Mother’s Day. Make the decision that even if it hurts… you will make better decisions for your child or children.

Prayer

Father, help me to rely on you and not toxic relationships. Keep me safe in your arms and away from all hurt, harm, and danger. In Jesus Name, I pray… Thank God, Amen.

“God is not a man that, He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?” – Numbers 23:19 God is so faithful, but He does something that the world doesn’t. God makes us wait. When we are enduring we encounter different emotions like frustration, weariness, anger, and sometimes we just don’t understand what God is doing. In these moments, where our faith is tried, it is important to lift up our eyes to the hill and know where our help comes from. Psalm 121:1-2 says, “I will lift up my eyes to the hills – From whence comes my help? My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.” In the midst of trials and tribulations, that occur while waiting, we have to stay rooted in the Word Of God. During the time of waiting, trusting in the things of this world is not an option according to Psalm 20:7, “Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; But we will remember the name of the LORD our God.” While waiting on The Lord we pray, we fast, and worship the LORD knowing that He is going to see us through. Proverbs 3:5-6 tells us, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” While waiting, trust in the LORD and know that He will see you through.
