Illness and Pain, Lay Your Burdens Down

Is it just me, or doesn’t it seem like there is a lot of sickness going around today. I’m talking about more than just swine flu. I get this sense that people are carrying around a lot of burdens.

You may be carrying burdens right now or you may know someone who is. I’m sure that you want to overcome what is bothering you. I know that you want to have victory. However, something inside of you can’t help but think bow hard this struggle is.

As believers, we can take great joy in knowing that all of the hard work has already been done for us. Jesus did all of the heavy lifting and all of the hard work on the cross.

Sometimes we need to remember¬† Isaiah 53:5. That’s not just some nice scripture that we quote in church to make people feel good. It is 100% TRUTH!

I know this may not be easy, but there is really no point in worrying about your pain suffering. When we worry, we don’t take full advantage to the amazing, outstanding and supernatural work that Jesus did on Calvary.

Here is an interesting concept. God wants to deal with all of our worries and pains. If you have trouble believing me, check out 1 Peter 5:7

So what do we need to do? Fortunately our role is relatively simple. First, need we to give the God thanks. Thank him for sending his son t0 deal with our every hurt, pain and disease.

Second, we must open our hearts and receive. We have to openly receive what Jesus did for us. We have to openly receive his sacrifice of love. We have to openly receive the fact that Jesus endured pain and suffering, so that we would not need to.

I don’t know about you, but I am extremely grateful. Jesus didn’t owe any of us anything. However, he was beaten and whipped, just so I could have a better life. That is such an awesome concept! I may catch the flu or some other type of illness this season. As a result, my body may feel absolutely horrible. In spite of all that, I know that I can and will overcome anything that may afflict me, because of what Jesus did.

What do you do when you are burdened and you experience physical pain.
