I see many being stretched like the stretching of a huge rubber band.
Many sincerely feel that we are being stretched beyond all control, and it feels like the breaking point.
Many have wondered how these various circumstances have happened in such a way, causing those who rarely fall under the weight of opposition to now feel so empty and useless.
Many have felt helpless, as they watch and are helpless to fix these issues in themselves, and especially in helping others.
So many are sitting in silence, no matter where they are. The silence has been deafening — even while among groups as sitting among people they even feel dead silent within.
There are serious trust issues at hand.
Many have gotten such flak from people in response of late, that now they won’t ask for help, because many people feel burned by sharing personal information for prayer — that has been turned and used against them.
Trust is earned and learned. It takes time to learn to trust, having proven things over and over again. The bottom line is — we can only truly trust The LORD, for He is always faithful and always has our best interests at heart.
If life was ideal and we never had negative circumstances happen, we would never grow and learn. In God’s timepiece, we need to enjoy the times of plenty and remember them, because each day has its own issues we must walk through.
Man’s time often doesn’t line up with God’s time and we find we cannot schedule our lives religiously. No one owns their own time ultimately.
God is always moving and doing but in man’s eye, one can’t often deal with the time constraint’s when unforeseen trials and tribulations hit us like a brick wall bringing all movement to an abrupt stop.
You have felt so alone in all of this whirling about you and you have found that even your physical body has been stretched to the limit and wracked with issues, especially pain.
In the midst of all that is happening, I also understood this too, that this far-reaching stretching you are going through, The LORD at the right season, and in His time shall aim you and you shall be catapulted beyond it all, going into your future.
This stretching isn’t just to stretch you, it is to aim you as a weapon, and no one will be able to blame you for anything. Suddenly you shall rise and people will wonder how in the world you got to where you have after having survived from insurmountable odds, being nearly or ‘seemingly’ cut off, like a POW. (Prisoner of War)
I see fragmented souls and people who don’t understand where they are. These don’t see how the fragments of their lives fit together. This fragmented existence isn’t all there is but God has a plan in motion to keep us dependent on the body of Christ.
We as a body have parts that fit together as fragments in the body of believers. Much like a huge puzzle, each piece is just as important to gain the vision of the entire picture God has given.
You are vitally important to God’s vision no matter how fragmented and seemingly small your life is. Receive this and know this In Jesus’ name!
“For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee. Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: So shall thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man. Trust in The LORD with all thine heart: and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear The LORD, and depart from evil. It shall be health to they navel, and marrow to thy bones,” Proverbs 3:2-8 KJV.
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
