I got hit in the teeth this afternoon.
By a group of individuals I thought loved me.
And it knocked the breath out of me and knocked me to my knees.
Isaiah 54:15 – If anyone does attack you, it will not be my doing; whoever attacks you will surrender to you.
However, within minutes my real heroes, my real champions surrounded me with powerful prayer and spoke powerful blessings over my life.
Psalm 32:7 You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah.
And all though my heart is broken and I am moved to tears by the pain God is using that pain to keep my eyes on him on not on those who have hurt me. He has sent angels to minister to me.
Hebrews 12:1-14 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
God has marked a new and clear path for me. He has a declared a new season in my life. I’m following Him and not looking back.
I proclaim to you new things from this time,
Even hidden things which you have not known.
They are created now and not long ago;
And before today you have not heard them,
So that you will not say, `Behold, I knew them.’
You have not heard, you have not known.
What new paths is God leading you down? Have you had to let go of relationships or friendships to follow His will for you? How’s your heart these days?
