2 Corinthians 4:7-11 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed – always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.
Can you relate to this scripture? Ever been hard-pressed, felt crushed, perplexed, in despair, persecuted, felt forsaken & rejected, struck down? If you live & breathe on planet earth you surely have experienced as least one of the above! But the good news is that Jesus is all about healing, restoring & setting us free to be about our Father’s business & fulfill our destiny if you will let Him!
What an awesome God we love and serve, that HE would entrust such treasure to us! What an honor & privilege to share His love & words of life. As Christians we know the anointing to minister words of life is from our Father. When we bow our hearts before Him and say Father, forgive me of all sin and fill me afresh this day with your love and Holy Spirit to be your anointed ambassador, He is faithful to do so. It is His delight and great pleasure.
Father God wants to encourage your heart today. You have a place in the earth today and He wants you to make an impact in our world. We may not know what that looks like, what that requires of us, or how that will be walked out in our lives. But this I know, when we choose to receive Him as Savior & Lord He sets us in the body of Christ, and places within us gifts, talents and abilities to be used daily and in the end time harvest. When we seek Him & ask, He will show us His anointed way to walk out His call upon our lives because He desires that we walk in the fullness of His call, plan, purpose & destiny for our lives.
So many Christians have been deeply hurt & wounded by the family of God to such a degree that they have pulled back & no longer move in the gifts God placed in them. God is calling to those wounded ones to arise & come forth. Let God heal and restore you so that you will fulfill your destiny. What the Devil meant for evil, God will gloriously work together for your good as you let Him heal you and settle your spirit in Him - once again. Our hope and confidence is in Him alone.
Romans 8:28-29 and we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. He wants you to know & be reminded that the Spirit Himself makes intercession for you according to the will of God. What love, mercy and grace our Father has for us! It seems that only after God has brought us through some hard places we realize the goodness that flows through us is from Him…the excellence of the power, the love and kindness expressed to others is from Him. He is LOVE!
Precious one let Him heal and restore you so that the wonderful amazing life and love Jesus Christ is made manifest through you. Oh, the wonder of His love is amazing! Receive it and be renewed and released to walk with Him again. He loves you so!!!
