Is it Possible to Worship God when you are in Pain? It all depends of your perspective of who God is. Jeremiah was in pain when he wrote this verse of WORSHIP and praise TO GOD.
“Ah, Sovereign LORD, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for You.” -Jeremiah 32:17
“Ah”- no…, Jeremiah was not stumped in what to say by using the word…”Ah.” This word is one that was used to speak of pain. Yet we learn pain did not have the final word, there was a “But God…”
In the midst of his pain … He chooses to …
WORSHIP GOD because He is…
1. – SOVEREIGN
2. – SELF-EXISTENT- LORD
3. – CREATIVE POWER
Allow the knowledge of Him to shape your Thinking.
Pain does not negate Praise.
Proper Perspective of God determines, irrespective of the pain, that there is the capacity to THINK right about Him and Worship Him in spirit and in TRUTH. For such God seeks after those who will.
His contemplation of God inspires faith…
He inspires such faith in Jeremiah, he rightly declares of the Sovereign LORD – “nothing is too hard for You….” which came when He looked at Him who for Who He is….irrespective of the painful circumstances. Jeremiah knew He could change them, He knew who he believed in and worshiped Him for Who He is…his pain was real but it did not master him. His true perspective of God enabled him in and through the pain to elevate his heart to Him who is superior and supreme over all. His pain would be temporary. His God is eternal.
