Pain is simply preparation for your destiny. In order to go from one level to the next we all must go through a transition phase. Just think about it. This could be anything from a new job, new school, or moving to a new home. Whenever a change is taking place a transition period is inevitable. As a matter of fact it is required for the change to work out correctly.
God knows about your pain. Jesus sees you hurting. Why won’t He just stop it? Because He wants to build you up. There is so much more that Christ has for you, but the transition stage must be endured. Bodybuilders and like love the phrase, ‘No pain, no gain.’ This couldn’t be farther from the truth in moving higher in the Lord. Doing new things, going new places, and learning new habits will be painful at times. But we must endure the pain of transition to reach our destiny in Christ. And don’t forget, God knows.
