You may wonder sometimes, if God has forgotten or does care about your suffering and pain. If you have suffered for while, and you have been in pain, either emotionally or physically, and have not seen relief yet, it does not mean that God does not care for you, or that he has forgotten or does not pay attention to your suffering.
How many good fathers are there, who will not care or pay attention to the suffering of their children? Not many! And why is that, that there are some Christians, who tend to think, that when they are suffering or in pain, God has forgotten them, or does not care about their suffering. Let me tell you, that it is a lie straight from hell. The enemy of your soul, will want you to believe, that God does not care for your suffering, and does not pay attention, to your pain.
In Psalm 22:24 the NLT New Living Translation, says that God has not ignored the suffering, and has not turned his back to the afflicted person. And that person includes you, if you follow God, believe in him, trust him, and want to obey him.
And it is not only in Psalm 22:24, that the Bible shows us that God really cares for us. And he said that we should cast all our anxieties on him, and that includes our suffering and pain. Because, what are some Christians anxious about sometimes? Is it not sometimes about health issues, and sickness? Of course that is.
If you suffer in persecution for your faith in God, and you want to be free from persecution, then God can deliver you from persecution for your faith in him, but sometimes, he will not deliver you from being persecuted for your faith in Jesus Christ, but will give you enough grace and strength, so that you can endure that persecution, for your faith in him.
Read the book of Revelation 2:10. After you read it, you can see very clearly, that Jesus says some who are addressed in Revelation 2:10, will be put in prison for 10 days, because of their faith, so that they could be tested. Now, you can maybe ask yourself, why does not God deliver them from persecution and suffering? Well, we do not know why, but that is what is written in the Bible. God could deliver them if he wanted, but he let them or their faith in Jesus, be tested, by letting them be persecuted for 10 days.
But nevertheless, the pain of the child, is also the pain of the father. God just does not look from heaven at your pain and suffering, and wonder if he is going to deliver you or not. His will is always to take care of your suffering, and to wipe every tear away from your face, just as it says that he will, in the Book of Revelation. How could God want to wipe every tear away from your face, and yet, not want to deliver you from pain and suffering? Of course he does, and he will. Just believe that it will happen for you too, personally.
