Text: Isaiah 53:5, Matthew 5:4
Minister: Dr. D.K Olukoya (G.O MFM Worldwide)

Isaiah 53:5 – “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”

Matthew 5:4 – “Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.”

What is Pain?

  • Pain is a feeling of being hurt.
  • Pain is for something to have bad effect on something.


1. Pain is universal

2. Pain has no respect for your age.

3. Pain does not discriminate; whether you are rich or poor, black or white, male or female, etc

4. Unto every life, a little bit of stormy rain may fall.

5. Pain differs from one person to another; it could be muscle pull, broken leg, broken heart, etc.

6. Pain may be acute or chronic; acute such that the pain happens suddenly and goes away and chronic such that, it does not seem to go away.

7. Pain is a sign that something is wrong and needs attention.

There is something known as spiritual pain;

  • Guilty conscience
  • Broken spirit
  • Declining spirituality
  • Loss of spiritual gifts
    Spiritual pain has pushed so many people into false religion and cult. Pain is our teacher, our invigilator, our adviser, our memory, etc. It is very arrogant; it will not go away without making a point and until the point is understood.

8. Pain is therefore a friend and an enemy.

9. It can make us better or bitter.

10. It calls our attention to our personal relationship and where we are to be.

11. Pain forces us to take action that we should have put in place before.

12. Pain points sacrifices for our greater good.
Matthew 16:24 – “ Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me”

13. There is power in pain; if not for pain, many will not get born again or spiritually strong.

May the Lord strengthen you all, in Jesus’ name.
But then, you can have pain in God’s way or the devil’s way. Pain from God will bring us ultimate good;

  • It can convert our corruption to heavenly purity.
  • It can convert our discourse to divine harmony
  • It can convert our failure to success.
  • It can convert our midnight to morning
  • It can convert our defeat to victory
  • It can convert our warfare to victory.
  • It can convert our struggle to success.
  • It can convert our tribulation to jubilation.
  • It can convert our fears to cheers.
  • Most importantly, it can convert our pain to gain.

There is pain from the devil; it has maddening spirit. There is only ONE pain killer; it is the BLOOD OF JESUS.

Most pain is an alarm crying for change. Everything changes and everyone in the world is powerless to stop changes.

I decree that it shall be well with you, in the name of Jesus.
