We describe ourselves by our pain. Meaning the negative things that happened to you; the things that hurt you or damaged your spirit can define who you are. Wow! My husband spoke life to me about how he sees me in relation to my gifting, my talents etc. His encouragement (unbeknownst to him) was an answer to a cry out to God to give me direction on how I should be using my gifts, as I know that it is imperative that I not bury my talents. I knew while he spoke to me that the Lord was using him and I received it as such… but did I? I went to sleep that night thinking wow God you are listening. The next morning I don’t get up enthusiastic about the encouragement I received the previous night however, there was an aura of me feeling overwhelmed by where to begin?!? In light of all we are going through (in the world right now) I am playing on this emotional trip that I waited too late… there is too much ground I have to make up. How can you hear from God so clearly but lack the motivation or fuel to just do it?
This post is me being transparent… a place where I believe is a benefit to both myself and someone else. I am moving… I’m pressing toward the mark regardless of how I feel TODAY!
Yes, there are may be many areas in your life that have been full of hurt and pain. I too can relate. However, we must continue to move forward through the false notion that the memory of these things mean that they are still being perpetrated or relevant in our life TODAY! I mean yes it happened but didn’t God heal us? Didn’t He deliver us? Didn’t He make us whole?
Who’s report will we believe? The constant portrayal of defeat in our minds and the whispers of the enemy lying and asking us “Did He really do those things for you?” or “Did He really say that?” Or will we believe God’s report that He has called you forth before the very foundation of the world and that He has plans for you!
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.Jeremiah 29:11 KJV
