There may be the initial pain in the beginning, alerting us that there are things coming up which we are going to have to deal with. But most times it seems that after we receive a certain amount of knowledge regarding what the matter is, the sometimes excruciating pain is often found within the active process of dealing with whatever we are called to deal with. After a certain amount of knowledge is revealed to us, the process towards the change begins and so does a whole assortment of pains within our mind, body and even our soul. And therein we begin to discover a whole new level and dimension of the Holy Spirit’s comfort, and also of the deeply cleansing and profoundly powerful scripture Matthew 6:25-30: ‘Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your Heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?  And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: and yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall He not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?’  The Holy Spirit’s instruction comforts us in ways nothing else can and surpasses all knowledge. He, alone, shows us the vital importance in having patience in Abba as our Shepherd, at certain times halts us, and at other times, leads us through it. Only our Shepherd can victoriously lead us through any process we must go through and we become more aware of His reigning peace and victory while we radically choose, moment by moment, to be more aware of Jesus than anything else! There is a richness of His Glory Abba would love for us to experience and it is present through every single, unique process we go through, no matter how disturbing it is in the flesh. Praise King Jesus, there is an active healing, which bypasses our fleshy minds, and is present during every single step of each and every process we go through, regardless of the final outcome.
