Sharing an old Facebook post…
Whenever there is a renovation going on the building looks a wreck. Things are ripped out and torn down. Signs are posted saying “Please excuse the mess” to placate those easily frustrated or uncomfortable with the changes. Some people speculate what the new building will look like while others might wonder if it will be more functional/useful to the community. The process is usually long, drawn out, tiresome, and demanding on those involved, yet the finished product (if completed by capable hands) far exceeds most expectations. The torn up mess is quickly forgotten as the vision is finally realized. As a believer, you might sometimes go through this same process, and while onlookers might look, gossip, and criticize you for your apparent state of disarray do not worry, doubt, or fear. Just go through the process resting in the capable and caring hands of our Lord and Savior, Jesus. He will beautify the meek. He will do a great work in you and through you if you allow Him to do so. Trust Him. Don’t begrudge the process!!
Every sinner should read Psalm 51: 1-19, and cry out to God like David did when he sinned! Confession is good for the soul!! Through Christ we find mercy and grace when we mess up. What’s that you say, you are not a sinner? So, why does the bible declare that all have sinned and fallen short of His glory? Sin free, still you insist that this is true. Sorry my friend to tell you but you are a liar, and the truth is not in you! Oh wait, lieing is a sin too. Please don’t be mad that I tell you the truth. Just REPENT!!! May you be blessed on today my friend. Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
Please share your thoughts on this topic in the comments below. I look forward to hearing from you! Have an AMAZING day!!!
The issue with being transparent is that there is always someone in the crowd who will try to show their superiority and question where you are and where you should be in their “all knowing” opinion. Be open and true anyway. Humble yourself and the Lord will lift you up in due season!! The Lord knows exactly where you are at and when it is the appointed time. Keep the faith and know your healing, deliverance, break through, and/or answer is on the way. Pray and wait patiently for your “and suddenly moment”. It’s on the way!!
Words To Stand On…
Matthew 15: 28
Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.
And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.
Walk It Out…
Stop and take a moment to meditate on this devotional and more importantly the mighty Word of God. How does this apply to you on today? What are you currently believing God for in your life? What do you need to let go of or stop doing immediately? What do you need to begin doing? Pray and listen. Now step out in faith and go forth in Jesus name!
