All experience adversity, defeating disappointment and even betrayal, including Papa’s children.
Why would a loving Father not protect His children from the woes of life?
Your restoration requires supernatural strength. Strength that requires disciplined training. In much the same way as you use weights to strengthen muscles in your physical body. Papa uses His truth and trials to strengthen the spiritual muscles of your soul.
Muscle growth is an anomaly that defies logic. By a process called micro trauma, the muscle is damaged by micro-tears. It is actually the healing, the restoration of these micro-tears that creates stronger muscles.
Papa uses a similar process to make His children spiritually stronger. Let us call it spiritual micro trauma. By tearing down strongholds— ungodly thought patterns. Papa transforms spiritual weaklings into spiritual giants.
When life becomes uncomfortable, unpredictable or prayers remain unanswered. A spiritual giant does not wave the white flag of surrender. He or she perseveres and overcomes.
Never resting on yesteryear’s laurels. A spiritual giant understands there is only one goal in life.
Becoming the image of Christ!
But His Son became a human and died. So God made peace with you, and now He lets you stand in His presence as people who are holy and faultless and innocent. But you must stay deeply rooted and firm in your faith. You must not give up the hope you received when you heard the good news.
