We say things, we question things, and we strive to see correctness replace wrongness, making sure all things line up properly, correctly, and honestly. However what becomes even more amazing is when we can actually experience those rough times when we deeply realize a depth to why the Lord deeply cleanses us from worrying or being overly concerned about what others think of us, or why we no longer strive to not stir the stale water and instead, confidently move forward as our Lord leads us to, regardless of what it may require us to do. Our voices, our words, our actions may be wrongly heard, wrongly received, and others may take it out of context, or those same words or actions may be wrongly looked at, dissected and wrongly labeled, or wrongly interpreted, and that is something that will never change. But what radically transforms these upsetting and frustrating experiences into becoming something above and beyond what we could have ever imagined, is our private, intense relationship with our Savior, actively dwelling intimately within us. We turn inward when those words, accusations, or any other wrong interpretations or actions lash out at us, and our world becomes super small as we intimately receive the spiritual healing of His waiting arms. And as we wait in Jesus’ healing embrace, the Holy Spirit slowly reveals to us the things we may have previously, and unknowingly done, things which had actually prepared us for what had come against us. Amazement flows through us as we clearly see that His guidance, and our obedience to Him, had actually provided a unique, protective safety-net around us, providing and establishing a specific healing we needed before we even had need of it. Then, as we continue to wait for a healed mind, healed emotions, healed feelings, or a healed situation, our Abba intimately releases words that radically sets us free from this particular situation in how only He can, causing our hearts to loudly rejoice, “I love the Lord, because He hath heard my voice and my supplications. Because He hath inclined His ear unto me, therefore will I call upon Him as long I live. (Psalm 116:1-2)” Remember, adversity uniquely drives us deeper in Jesus, and strengthens our commitment to the Only One who could ever truly heal us and sustain us. Praise be to God~we are His, and He is ours! How could we possibly complain about situations which cause us to actively experience our Abba’s personal touch?! No way, we can’t and won’t!
