Has your Vision been blurred by Pain?

One of the most precious gifts that any man can have in life is the gift of seeing right, seeing as the Father sees. Why? Because it helps you focus on that which the Father majors on and minor on what He minors.

What happens when your heart and eyes are blurred by the pain of the current season you are in? One thing God wants to help you and I do, is to see correctly when pain knocks hard.

At Gethsemane, Jesus bared out His heart to the Father, pouring out the anguish and pain of his soul. He prays 3 times for long, just pouring out His heart before the Father and at every point He says “If You will, let this cup pass over me but nevertheless not as I will but as You will Lord”. You will think this was easy for Him to say because He was the son of God until you are down in similar situation.

While He prayed, he knew the pain wasn’t going to get any easier or better but there was something that he saw that made him say “you know what I’m doing this, come what may”.

Fast forward to the Cross, this same man was called all sorts of name, he was despised, afflicted, name it but He knew it was for the best, it was for the Salvation of humanity. He remembered you and I and said I’m going to damn the shame and do this!

Notice that at all this points, he was seeing correctly just as the Father would see not allowing pain to blur His vision because to be honest pain can blur anyone’s vision. In such moments or season, you begin to yearn for the nearest escape route, you are pressured on all sides and most times feel alone.

God’s word tells us that our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory 2 Corinthians 4:17

Friends! When you walk through such season of pain, in fact when you sense such seasons near, Pray! Pray!! Pray!!! Ask God to help you see correctly what He’s doing in that season of your life, Ask him to help you respond correctly. I’m telling You God answers and I am a living testament to it.

Be encouraged! Your season of Refreshing is here!

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!

Joy of Many Generations 1

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
