Walking Out of Darkness
Wednesday, January 20, 2021
I can't tell you how many times from circumstances I have become broken, but not destroyed. But once again God has shown His faithfulness by taking me from a destruction circumstance emotionally and physically into growing into being calm, and enjoying life again. Learning that I had divine guidance helping me. Learning to remember I need God to love me when I did not, and to show me how to become strong spiritually.
It's amazing to think that as born again Christians we someone times believe that just hearing the Word is enough, but it isn't. We need to develop a relationship with Him. Deepening our relationship beyond depending on others to read the Bible, and tell us what it means.
Recently I allowed my emotions to take control of my thoughts. And the Devil used my insecurity to try to defeat me. I didn't know that I was broken in some way, but God used my brokenness to bring me into another awareness of my weakness. If the enemy doesn't get you to believe you aren't enough, then He will get you to believe others are trying to ruin you.
We are all broken in some way. The best thing to do is to deal with it. Otherwise it will root itself into your relationships. I know we are living during troubling emotional times. But we need to turn our flesh away from worldly troubles. Life happens, worry, fear, anger is not of God, but from the enemy. We need not listen to our fears. Know that God loves us, trust God, and believe in His ways. He has an anointing for your life, a good plan, and a purpose for you. The best thing we can do is to grow from mistakes, and find the peace God affords us. He wants us to have joy, have a a stable mind, and walk in His love always. Dive deeper into your Bibles to understand His promises to over come your insecurities, and brokenness.
You are responsible for you happiness, so take the time to forgive what ever guilt you have about yourself. God has given us mercy. Be kind to yourself, and give yourself the love you need. Know that you are already loved by an awesome God who already forgave you, and has shown mercy, not judgement. So move beyond judging yourself.
If you are going under something right now that is troubling, know that it is a time of testing. Seeing if you can stand strong against your adversity. Don't let your past or a circumstance define you or keep you from living a wonderful life.
I hope this message has brought you some insight, and helped direct and guide you into seeing that nothing can keep you from the love of God.
