How does God help me deal with my pain?

Psalm 55:22Give your burdens to the Lord, and he will take care of you.

1 Peter 5:7Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.

Psalm 31:7I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love, for you have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul.

It is easier to deal with pain when someone is helping you through it, and there is no one better to help than God! These verses are not saying that God will keep you from experiencing pain, but that he will keep you from being defeated by it if you go to him for help and healing. Place your pain on his shoulders so he can help you bear it.

Psalm 10:17Lord, you know the hopes of the helpless. Surely you will hear their cries and comfort them.

Psalm 119:76Now let your unfailing love comfort me, just as you promised me, your servant.

2 Corinthians 1:3-4All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.

God listens, loves, blesses, and comforts us when we are in pain. While others do this inconsistently, God is unfailing.

Psalm 69:29I am suffering and in pain. Rescue me, O God, by your saving power.

Go first to the One who is all-powerful and can help you most with your hurt and pain. Not only can God heal your pain on earth, but his power of salvation will free you from all pain in eternity.

Psalm 25:18Feel my pain and see my trouble. Forgive all my sins.

It is painful to be controlled by sin or a sinful habit. God’s forgiveness frees you from slavery to sin and gives you the power to overcome it.

Psalm 34:18The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.

Psalm 69:16Answer my prayers, O Lord, for your unfailing love is wonderful. Take care of me, for your mercy is so plentiful.

God’s character of unfailing love and plentiful mercy is like medicine for your pain.
