The ways God speaks does not seize to amaze me. Just within this month, I was swamped with tonnes of task to do. I was exhausted, but kept at it. At a point my teenage daughter kept saying “mum that’s ok, take a rest”. She said this continuously at intervals, and my reply each time was, ” I will, just a little bit more”.
Then she spoke and it caught my attention! It wasn’t that I wasn’t listening or paying attention to her, but what she said was beyond her years and I knew it, that this was God speaking, just letting me know, I’ve got “IT” in me!
My daughter said ” mum you are strong, no wonder you are in this situation. God knows you can handle anything!!!”. Of course, I stopped right there because, the Holy Spirit gave it a deeper meaning, He gave me a deeper understanding of what the Lord knows about us that we could never know until it unfolds layer upon layers as The Lord wills it.
Remember 1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
Whatever is going on in your life, family, business, ministry, and so on, know that the Lord will not permit it to go beyond what you can take. He always makes a way of escape.
The “cross” you are carrying will not crush you my friend. The Lord knows your capacity before He permitted it to come your way!
The virtue you birth therefore must be employed to encourage and strengthen others along the way of thier own conception. Don’t waste your pain!!!!
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
