- Do not engage with the enemy on his level.
His strategy is to keep us bound on a level we were never meant to stay on. Walk on and give it no more place. Instead go on ahead. Be not stationed with it, but growing out of it.
- Learn from mistakes, forgive, let it go and move on.
You are not able to change others, you forgive and move on; forgive yourself and refocus on the Lord and His Word.
We can’t change our mistakes but we can learn from them. God uses all of our lives and even our mistakes as well. Those of our own house will be our worse enemies.
God gives His solution by releasing pearls of great wisdom.
- Beloved, we are not alone! NEVER!
Even though we feel alone and it feels like our life has past us by.
The enemy says, “the best times are over and have become a fading memory”.
You feel like the old grey mule she ain’t what she use to be and you feel like you have been turned out to pasture.
- Know this, that your life is not over.
There has not been one wasted moment. Although there has been one lie after another, we need to remember we don’t see behind the scenes.
God will encourage us, even though we are seemingly passed by.
- Our worth is so precious to God and He validates us and He will defend us.
He is our advocate, and judge all at the same time. Entrust your tears to Him.
He places each one in a bottle and he knows the feelings of our infirmities physically, and emotionally.
- Yes, Jesus is familiar with physical pain and knows our heart pain.
He suffered when he knew what it felt like to be totally rejected. He understand hurt and betrayal.
He knows what is it like when man totally alienates us, and we alienate ourselves and hide away.
Jesus knows and he is familiar with our path and pain, and he is with us the whole way.
Though you feel far from Him, he is as closer than our very breath. Closer than we we first believed.
- The enemy drives us to hide, withdraw and to condemn ourselves.
The devil is very adept to isolate us. When we are wounded, he brings all sorts of things to provide crutches in all forms.
He uses real things like addictions, alcohol, the wrong people etc. Because of pain in our gaping woundedness we feel so alone even among people.
The enemy seeks to destroy us once we are down. God knows it all, and like Job, he remained true to God through the loss of all things.
- The devil thrives in planning things for months and even years to get us to self destruct.
Once he gets us to trust the lie, He will work at a rapid pace to destroy us. The thief comes to kill, steal and destroy, but Jesus came that we have life and that more abundantly.
However, God knows how much we can bear and he will provide a way of escape to avoid all of the devil’s traps. When we are weak, he is strong!
We must learn ourselves to walk on. Even if you see others passing by.
Many people have no clue what you are going through, and they will bring religious spirits with condemnation. Be still, quiet and know you have nothing to say, and keep it from those who would cast your pearls before swine.
When you come through all of this, you will be so much stronger and able to understand compassion, and grace in a greater depth.
Your peace shall abide through all of the turmoil. Bless these and do not curse. Let God vindicate you and make room for your gifts.
I see new people coming into your lives. I see transitioning and going among other people that will be strength to you and divine counsel!
Stay close to the Lord and those who are his beloved. We must learn ourselves to walk on. Even if you see others who knew you and betrayed you by judging you, bless and do not curse.
Give no place to the enemy. The Lord shall rise with healing in His wings.
“For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts,” Malachi 4:1-3 KJV.
“And he said, Blessed be thou of the LORD, my daughter: for thou hast shewed more kindness in the latter end than at the beginning, inasmuch as thou followedst not young men, whether poor or rich,” Ruth 3:10 KJV.
“So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses,” Job 42:12 KJV.
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
