Pain Can Change What You Believe

I want you to think about John the Baptist for a second. He was chosen, he knew Jesus, he baptized Jesus and watched a dove come down from heaven and heard the audible voice of God. When John was in prison the pain of his circumstances (He was in a mindset of “I’ve done nothing to deserve this” just like Joseph in the Old Testament who responded differently) caused him to question what he knew and believed. He sent his followers to ask Jesus if he was the one or should they look for another. Can you imagine the depths of pain that John felt for him to question what he knew that he knew and witnessed with his own eyes? We can’t handle our pain only God can, that’s why we must hand our pain over to God and allow Him to heal and do what only He can do.
