There will be a time in your life when you realise that the Silent Seasons paid off, You knew that you should be “there” but happened to be “here” anyway. You longed for the voice of The Divine One (Jesus Christ) but all you heard was yourself, the voice of the world and the noise of your adversary. But you knew you had to be consistent in fellowship, so you prayed, you cried, you gave, you fasted..did all you knew….expecting a change anyhow..
At this time that I speak of, times of lamentation, being misunderstood, lack of identity, pressure of competition, shame from destructive criticism and mockery, depression from lashes of downgrading words, times of chaos are Suddenly over then you are like a one brought into a new place where Shalom (peace with prosperity – a state of nothing missing and nothing broken) eats up every contrary wind. Oh! Here is calm to your storm!
Welcome to your new place, love. BUT YOU CAN’T KEEP DOING WHAT IS NO LONGER IN YOUR LIFE! Get Up! You are no longer the broken one. You are RESTORED. PROMOTED TO A HIGHER PLACE! Were you ever broken, I wonder? No, your life is HIDDEN with God In Christ! You were always alive to Christ and He was your RIDDANCE all these times. Though you were tested by fire but you have passed the test.
Would this compel you to share that God RESTORES, PROMOTES, SAVES, HEALS AND DELIVERS??? That’s left for you!
I believe that your mourning times are over! End the pity party, make a Shout of Triumph!
In my trying times, I have come to conclude that God is faithful. Jesus isn’t a tale, He is Truth and that the Holy Spirit is one who never leaves. Hey! Guys, He Stayed!!!
