Do not fear the changes that have come to your life as though something terrible has happened that cannot be redeemed. (1 Pet. 4:12)
I can redeem anything! (Ex. 6:6)
Have I not kept my promises to you?
When you were so broken, and you thought, “This will never be okay; the mess is too big!”
You looked on the ruins about you, and you believed, you were what you saw.
But I saw what you couldn’t. I saw your future… what you were in the process of becoming.
I wound and I make alive… for process. (Deut. 32:39)
(We have spoken of this, remember?)
What you walk through prepares you for what you are believing I can do in your life.
The methods, My methods, almost always catch you unaware, yes?
But, are they not effective in accomplishing our goals? Are you not closer than you have ever been to your dreams? Are you not a better person because of the things you have suffered?
Yes, I wound… but not for sport!
(That is the enemy who plants those thoughts.)
I only wound for: purpose.
My goal is always to draw you away from your ego and self-sufficiency.
My purpose is to bring you to a place of desperation…
“I will give you back your health again and heal your wounds…” Jeremiah 30:17
