Pain Is a Microphone


Suffering isn’t an obstacle to being used by God. It is an opportunity to be used like never before.

You’re actually better fit for ministry in the crucible of pain. You have a stronger voice to project and to declare, and it’s easier to belt from the diaphragm of your soul when you’re hurting. It’s counterintuitive, but in the middle of my hardest mess, I’ve found ministry to be a great strength waiting to be tapped into. It was welling up within me—a greater desire than ever before to tell the whole world that Jesus Christ can turn off the dark—because I experienced it myself. Right there, at ground zero, in the valley of the shadow of death. As hard as it was to claw our way through on hands and knees in those moments, Jennie and I found that when we poured our pain into ministry, whole new levels of usefulness opened up. There’s perhaps no time you are as powerful as when you minister in the midst of pain.

Read: Psalms 34:18
John 12:32
Acts 9:15-16
Daniel 12:3
Revelation 1:6

  1. So true, Majka.

  2. Amen! I also like that scripture that says ‘Jesus learned obedience by what he suffered’… I too find that as we now develop to be empathetic high priests in the School of Christ, we must be touched by the experiences of mankind now to later understand how mankind as we help Jesus in the restitution work helping humanity up the Highway of Holiness.

    Through the greatest of our sufferings now of the flesh we learn the disastrous effects of the consequences of evil so that we will only want to seek towards that which will please God and allow us to God willing be joint heirs with our beloved Jesus in the near approaching kingdom and forever belong to Jesus. God bless you.
