LIFE HAPPENS, but God is still God, and He can make lemonade out of our lemons…
Many of us have gone through some things in life, and some of those things may have been absolutely horrible. But no matter what we’ve been through, God doesn’t want us to become that, He wants us to become trees of righteousness, strength, and power..
“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, Because the Lord has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, and to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound…Isaiah 61:1
Are you the poor? the poor in spirit, the financially poor, the relationally poor, the emotionally poor, or the physically poor. Are you the brokenhearted? Are you the one who is physically, emotionally, mentally and relationally captive? Are you the one who is physically, emotionally, mentally and relationally bound?
If this is the way you feel, know that God says, this isn’t who you are. This isn’t who you’re to become. This isn’t who you were created to be.
You are fearfully and wonderfully made..Psalm 139:14
So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them..Genesis 1:27
Your Helper is here. God knows every tear you’ve cried, and every prayer you’ve prayed. Your new day, dawns. Your breakthrough is breaking. Your season is shifting and God is restoring you…
“To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn, 3 To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness…Isaiah 61:2-3
Your rejection is being turned ACCEPTANCE. God is going to VALIDATE and VINDICATE you. God is going to COMFORT and CONSOLE you. God is going to give you BEAUTY for ashes, the OIL of joy for mourning, and the GARMENT OF PRAISE for the spirit of heaviness.
What you’ve been feeling, dealing with, and going through, God has turned around and is using it as fertilizer. (a substance used to make or help plants grow) You see, what you may not have realized, is that you were a tree all along.
The enemy wanted you to become a Bitter Tree, a Bending or Compromising Tree, a Settling Tree, a Weeping Willow, an Angry Tree, a Resentful Tree, a Mad-at-God Tree, but GOD. All along God’s been using what you’ve been through to make you stronger, better and wiser in Christ Jesus…
Why would God do something like that for you, for us? Because regardless of what we think and go through, He loves us, and He has a purpose and plan for our lives…TREES OF RIGHTEOUSNESS!
“That they (You, me ALL of us) may be called trees of righteousness……….Isaiah 61:3
And guess what else, it’s for His glory and He’ll plant and position us right where He wants us….
The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified…Isaiah 61:3
