Although once you were rejected and despised, undesirable for anyone to pass through you,I will make you majestic forever, a source of joy for every generation. Isaiah 60:15 (TPT)
Whereas thou hast been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations. Isaiah 60:15 (KJV)
Whereas you have been forsaken and hated With no one passing through, I will make you an everlasting pride, A joy from generation to generation. Isaiah 60:15 (NASB)
God is a Father who wants to show forth His children to the world but He first wants to make His children. It is very easy to ignore the “make” in this scripture and move to the beautiful part of being an eternal excellence and the joy of many generations but we never enter into this dimension if He doesn’t take us through the process even though it is ours, it is just like a child who owns an inheritance but because he is still a child, because he has not grown to the point of handling it can’t lay hold of the inheritance. Galatians 4:1
God is like an artist who makes a work of art and knows its not time to make a public display of His work because He’s not yet done. God is painting our lives and until He is done, He won’t show us to the world. When He is done, He would like an artist make a show of you because He is so proud of the work He has done in you.
We must never despise the making process, allow God beat and blow away the chaff so that the impact He’d make through you would linger for generations.
He’d lead you in the path of righteousness for His name sake because that is part of the plan, the making process. (Psalms 23:3) The process is never easy per say but we’d appreciate what He has done in us later on.
Today, decide that you will submit to His making process so you can become this eternal excellence and joy of many generations not just this generation alone.
We pray God to strengthen you to go through the process in Jesus name. Amen
We invite you to journey with the Lord Jesus as you ask Him to take rest in your heart by saying this prayer;
Dearest Jesus I thank you for your death, burial and resurrection, you did all of this for me. I know I have lived my life without you in it but today I surrender all to you, forgive my sins and take over my life. Thank You for Your LOVE towards me Jesus. In Jesus name. Welcome to God’s family!
