There are periods in our life where God is building character in us, where He is polishing us. These are the times we feel like we are in the pit like Joseph or alone tending the sheep like David. In our pits we sometimes try to scramble out with all our efforts, but child of God, He is using that pit to polish you, to make you, to craft you to be a vessel of honour.
It sometimes may feel like the polishing is too painful, the remodeling is very uncomfortable, and running seems to be the easier way out. But don’t run child of God; Joseph could have ran away from all his troubles any time, but then he would never reach the palace.
We all find ourselves in situations where we just want out, but child of God, endure! For from this God is bringing you to the palace.
God is creating something more in us. He is creating people of character. For the anointing of God to fulfil its purpose it must be found in a child of character. It didn’t matter how much Saul was anointed, his character determined if it remained!
God is making you a man/women of character to lead a generation.
It’s a fact that diamonds are formed at very high temperatures and at extreme pressures in the depths of the earth’s mantle. The Potter’s hands are on our lives and He will make us as precious diamonds. Endure child of God for this season!
In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 1:6-7 NKJV)
May God give you the patience and endurance for this season. Much love Nimmy.
