It takes a level of maturity spiritually, to be eligible for the process of God revealing certain things, to you about yourself. The ability to hear criticism is a result of growth and it is a difficulty that feels incarcerating initially, but it leads to liberty.
When God can trust you with unflattering information and show you areas of improvement, this a not sign of something wrong, but a signal of something right.
This symbolizes growth and means HE has more in store. It is not about worry, frustration or regret. Even though it may feel that way, take it all in stride and use the information to become better.
Like a soldier, the training that prepares you, most is the training despised, most. A soldier trains both to build strengths, but also trains to reveal weaknesses.
As you begin to grow spiritually and become more trustworthy, with God’s heart, it is imperative that you know and are intimately connected your fortes and flaws.
