God can always fix what’s been broken. He is the ultimate restorer and healer. He can restore everything that you lost. Your experience will never be wasted. Everything will come together for the good. That means every mistake, wrong doing and trial will be used for your advantage to glorify his kingdom. It is written in Joel 2:25 that I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you. He can restore back your joy, health, dreams, relationships and finances. He can restore the years of drought into the years of plenty. Your experiences are never about you. It’s about helping someone else to become set free from the same challenges that you endured. God will always use what you been through as a testimony to others. Open your mind, heart and spirit to receive him today. He shall give you double for the trouble. He shall give you beauty for your ashes.
Before the foundations of the world, God had already planned out your life. Do not stress the details or the minor things that do not matter. When the appropriate time comes, your gift will make room for you. Hard work and pressure will come along the way, but do not see it as a “job”. Envision it as an assignment. Envision it as purpose. Envision it as a mission. He will not withhold any good thing from you, for what’s for you, is for you. Don’t over think and analyze things. Just allow your gift to flow. Don’t taint your gift through the feeling of worry. The Bible says Worry Not. Faith and worry cannot reside in the same place. Allow your gift to flow from your spirit, not by what other people want. If you stay true to who you are, you are saying to yourself that you will allow God to take control. Allow him to be your guide and direction in the midst of frustration and confusion. You were not meant to figure everything out. God has you right where he wants you. He is all-knowing and omniscient. He knows what to add and take away in your life. He knows where to place you as well the timing. Allow your gift to flow from the seeds of God’s love, righteousness, purity and faith. Let God be in full control and watch him move in your life.
Sometimes God puts you in certain situations to prepare you for where your going. Sometimes he puts you in particular situations to measure your growth. Trials also brings you closer to God, for it is a blessing to suffer for him. Have you measured your personal and spiritual progress? Everyone has imperfections but it does not mean we should not strive for perfection because it is written in 1 Peter 1:16 (KJV): Be Holy for I am Holy. How far have you come along? You may not be where you want to be, but you are not where you used to be. Not giving into the flesh takes discipline and power. Delayed gratification is better than instant gratification. Do not give into the impurities of your heart. Do not give into any sins of the flesh or spirit. There is a reason that God chose you, for it is written in Luke 12:48: For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required. When you are called and chosen by God, the path you walk will be narrow. Everything you have endured will pay off in due time. Think about the next time when you are in a tempting situation, Is it Worth it? Is it worth losing your temper, honor, virtue and dignity over something or someone who isn’t worth it? The price of sin is too high to pay for. God will honor and reward you for doing his will. He is not a man that shall lie. His love is unmeasurable and he will lead you on the right path. Do not allow anyone to sacrifice your honor. It is better to suffer for the sake of righteousness than for the sake of doing wrong. When looking in the mirror in the depths of your soul, ask yourself, is it worth it?
You do not the need other people’s approval or affirmation. If God spoke it, then it shall come to pass. You have everything you need to succeed. You are already a winner. There’s no need to add anything more or less to who you are. God does not make mistakes. Embrace who you are because God has chosen you. Know who you truly are. Extraordinary people go through extraordinary things. Remember that it’s an honor to suffer for God. Trust him who has made you for he will never leave you or forsake you. You are enough. You are important and you are favored.
Stop worrying and concentrating on things that do not matter. It’s a waste of time and energy. Allow things to fall in place during its proper timing, for timing is everything. Anything or anyone who does not have anything to do with purpose, is insignificant. It is nothing more than a distraction. That’s why it’s important to guard your heart’s affections. Focus on your progress and growth. Great things take time and not overnight. Focus on what really matters. Be not alarmed by what hasn’t come to pass yet. You are on schedule. Don’t focus on anything that is not going where your going, for everything does not deserve your attention. Remember to focus on what matters. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but his word shall not.
