Maybe that’s why this process hurts. Maybe it’s because God is trying to put you into a mold (which at this moment you do not like) for you to become more like Him and yet you are not acknowledging it. You’re being resistant and disobedient. God is telling you to trust and obey Him, but you keep on insisting your own ways. And now you end up being hurt because of it. Who’s fault is that? In this process of God creating in you a better daughter of Him, it will hurt. He is disciplining you for greatness.
There are a lot of things and attitude that He needs to correct and develop in you. There’s that character of yours He wants to get rid off, just obey. That thing you do when you get annoyed and impatient, God wants to change that in You, too. Maybe there are prayers unanswered at this moment because of those. Maybe deep inside of you, He wants to change something because He is just preparing you for the great things He planned for you. Accept the pain, embrace it even. Know that through that struggle and difficulty, He is trying to show you the way to the plans He has for you. Just be patient.
Please, please be patient about all of this, it’s all for His glory. It’s not about your wants and your plans, it’s about His. Because He knows what’s best for you. And if you obey and follow His will, He will give you the desires of you heart–according to His plans. All of the pain will be worth it, He promised. For as long as you obey in His words and trust in His promises, you are in the right path for He will never leave you nor forsake you.
Just trust and obey.
Trust and obey.
