It Is Well

13:42




Funny, how relational dynamics change. The one who used to be close is now an acquaintance. An acquaintance is now closer than a sister. This is all part of life, of growth, of shedding and beginning anew. It’s sometimes confusing; it hurts, it’s uncomfortable and sometimes traumatic. But in all of it you become stronger, wiser, and learn to appreciate life as God made it. It is all part of the journey, and as you grow in understanding, you realize these changes aren’t a bad thing. You stop ascribing a negative characteristic to them because this is the path you had to take. It had to happen this way so you can see the faithfulness, protection, forgiveness and the love of God. And you go through this so you may grow in faithfulness; you learn to protect, and forgive, and love as God does. Some challenges are there to equip us for the road ahead. Others reveal a profound resilience of our Spirits. Others are there to chip away what is weak in us so that we become strong and wise. I’m growing in understanding of why it is necessary to guard my heart, to be vigilant over it. The devil truly does come as an angel of light. It’s not everyone who calls you friend that’s a friend. It’s not everyone who says they love you that carry love in their hearts. But despite betrayals, and hurt, when you release it to God, He raises a standard against the enemy of your soul. He raises your capacity to respond as Him. Truly, our battle is not against flesh and blood, the vessel (the person/people) through which that pain came; but it is against the wicked spirits executing their agenda through those people. What part of your destiny are they trying to abort? What area of your character are they trying to destroy? Why are they hell bent on stealing your peace and your expectation? It is so hard to think spiritually when evil has a clear face. Some are bewitched, and cannot fathom why they do the wicked things that they do. But when you surrender you eventually come to a place of understanding (maybe of thankfulness). Human relationships are not without tribulation. But God is your hope, and will succour your heart in dark times, He will lead you beside the still waters and will restore your soul. And with restoration, He will teach you how to stand against your enemy and uproot the seeds that your enemy has planted. God is faithful in all things. It is well.
