He doesn’t want us to miss out on experiencing Him…

Have you ever wanted God to just take something away?

To remove something out of your life, out of your path…

Perhaps something scary.

Something painful.

Something uncomfortable.

Something “uncertain.”

Something inconvenient

But what if…

He wants to teach you, to reveal to you…

what it’s like

to walk through that “thing”

to face that “thing”

with Him.

Alongside Him

What if…

He wants you to experience

to LIVE, to KNOW

what it’s like to overcome

with Him?

What if there’s something

so valuable there…IN that hard thing

that He knows about. ☀️

And for Him to just remove it from your path

for Him to just remove it from your life…

wouldn’t actually be loving of Him

from the way He sees it.

…From His higher, eternal perspective. 💝

“For as the sky soars high above earth,

so the way I work surpasses the way you work,

and the way I think is beyond the way you think.”—Isaiah 55:9 The Message

Because if He were to just “remove it” from your life…

it would be as if He were “removing very important pages”

from your story—from your testimony that is being written—the story of “you knowing and experiencing Him” in your life…✍🏻

He knows the plans He has in store for you.

Plans that are good.

And though He doesn’t place the pain in your path

sometimes

He doesn’t just “remove it” when it comes your way…

sometimes

He doesn’t just “make it all easy.”

But we can know…

that He ALWAYS has good reason for what He allows.

And we can know…

That He will give us what we need

to endure through it.

What if…

what He allows in your path

is something He knows

that you wouldn’t want to ever miss out on

especially from an eternal perspective?

Oh, the things that He sees, that we cannot yet see…☀️✨

We thought we could (more than) gladly live without the hardship, without the trouble…

But God knew

that it would change our lives

for the good.

And in ways we cannot yet understand or imagine…

He knows about all the things we’ll get to experience

with Him—the experience OF HIM

by our side

in this LIFE!

And He knows about

ALL of the things

we’ll get to OVERCOME

by the blood of the lamb

and by the word of our testimony.

“I am writing to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning. I am writing to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I have written to you, children, because you know the Father.”—1 John 2:13

“You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.”—1 John 4:4

“But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.”—Romans 8:37

“For everyone born of God is victorious and overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has conquered and overcome the world—our [continuing, persistent] faith [in Jesus the Son of God].”—1 John 5:4

He sees the VICTORY. 🙌

Thank You, Father. 💝
