There are some past hurts and offenses, that are hindering your current, plus future growth. What you endured was egregious and many would have failed. The dark place and the dark season wanted to kill you, but it could not.
You endured it, to tell it. It was a private war, but needs to be a public victory. Let the world know what you have overcome and how you survived the unthinkable. The opinions of men be damned, to the darkness from which that came.
There is a light in your story and a hope in your testimony. Shine the light inside you, onto the world. Tell them what I have done with you, for you and through you. Let your light shine. Your story is another’s glory and your hardship another’s hope.
Keep your light lit, so that all men can see it. Be MY lamp stand planted on the hill. What was meant for shame is now the show. In your humility, vulnerability and transparency, others will have their clarity. The light in you is for them.
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
The traditions of men are at odds with truth. I AM Truth. The church is divided by color, creed and the opinions of the men. Mammon has replace ME in the hearts of those who claim to know ME, but this is the great lie.
An enemy has done this. The church is broken and fragmented into black, white and brown versions. The fragmentation is based on fear. These divisions are not from on high, but are schemes from the lowest pits of hell.
MY church, MY Holy Church is beyond color, is beyond governmental powers, is beyond social conformities and not reserved for the rich. MY Church is a pure and a holy people, that have the interests of MY heart, as its own.
Reconciliation is coming and it will happen through praise. The solution is in the surrender, the answer is in MY presence and the truth is in MY Spirit. Repent and return to ME, Isreal. I have a new ring, a new robe and a fattened calf awaiting.
“And He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth.”
“But his father said to the servants, ‘Quick! Bring the finest robe in the house and put it on him. Get a ring for his finger and sandals for his feet. And kill the calf we have been fattening. We must celebrate with a feast, for this son of mine was dead and has now returned to life. He was lost, but now he is found.’ So the party began.
