Due to this season of various testing, trials, and tempting, many are finding out they cannot stand patiently under utter silence.
Many feel out of sorts and out of step due to silence. This season has caused a boiling of sort, or bringing to the surface what is hidden within the soul.
God already knows what is in our heart, but it is during this season he wants us to know what is in our own hearts!
We gain substance to our faith when we learn the lessons of the deep valleys, deserts and the wilderness.
It is in the dry, and barren times that we learn what prepares us to scale the mountain tops.
However, growth cannot be tested on the mountain tops, it is only tested in the silence of the valley when all the crutches of our condition are taken away; when the rubber meets the road.
It is in total silence and all sorts of testing and trials that you will begin to see your own heart condition.
It is in silence that he takes all influences away. We go “cold turkey” so to speak and trust Him regardless of what it looks like, feels like or sounds like.
That beloved is having confident faith and trust in God. We cannot trust and lean on a person. Don’t put your trust in man for it will pierce your hand.
What is clearly seen in your heart has been clearly known all along by God. His desire is that we repent of unbelief that caused us to be shaken in our faith and move forward.
It is all about becoming more like Him and knowing Him intimately as He is known.
The LORD is the same yesterday, today and forever. He is not an unstable God, he is not moody!
He is not schizophrenic, or bi-polar. He doesn’t jump in and out of you and play with your emotions.
He doesn’t give us the silent treatment by manipulating us! He is a good, good Father. He is always the same!
He never leaves us or forsakes us! Right now, you are closer than his very breath. Know it!
Believe it! Close your eyes right now and acknowledge Him with your very breath.
Don’t trust your senses, have faith and trust His love and goodness! He is faithful beloved! His goal is to bring stability into your life in order for your growth!
Then you will truly know and have the good news and the gospel as a testimony for others!
Oh the wonder of His love! Oh the love of His goodness and kindness towards you! Oh your path is shining brighter and brighter beloved!
Oh the journey, your trek is in knowing him as He knows you! Oh His delight in seeing you blossom!
Who against hope believed in hope! He knows all about you and in a glimpse, he has transformed you, as his bride! She has all sufficiency with nothing missing, broken or nothing lacking!
What you were, no longer exists in God! You died in Christ and you are now risen to newness of life.
Your salvation is a done deal. The only way the enemy can gain access to us is if we believe his lies and give in to him.
Salvation was instantaneous when we received Jesus, but growth in faith will last for a life time.
God keeps saying, “Case dismissed! Case dismissed! Saved by Grace!!”
You are no longer that old person; your identity was completely changed and your name is written in heaven!
That person no longer exists! You are marked with the divine seal of His Majesty; His great signet!
Signed, sealed and delivered!
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
