God has growth and maturity in mind.

“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2

My sister, God is into developing our character and shaping us into the image of Christ. In the process, He causes us to let go of wrong views, false belief systems, destructive habits, wrong responses and helps us to face the truth of who we have allowed ourselves to become. He doesn’t do this to our hurt or shame, but for our benefit. Like any loving parent, He has growth and maturity in mind for us, and if it requires the pain of having to let go, telling us “no,” or closing a door, He will allow it. What we must do is learn to appreciate His sovereign wisdom and continue to pursue Him still. Let’s not allow the actions of others or feelings of self-pity to cause us to walk away from what God has called us to do. I declare we will stay in the fight! God is our strength, and He will continue to accomplish in us all that He desires!

Prayer: Lord, I fix my eyes on you right now. Shape me and mold me into the image of Jesus. I receive your strength and wisdom now to continue to move forward fighting the good fight of faith. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read 1 Timothy 6:12)
