I had prepared to post something else, but reread your post and got a reminder about purification (the process of refinement). That is the point of the daily "picking up the cross" - to have the Father search our hearts and test them (Psalm 139:23), to allow His refiner's fire (Malachi 3:2) to burn the dross out of us (Proverbs 25:4, Malachi 3:3). Easier said than done, but it can become a habit if one is willing to endure and learn from the trials of life in order to become mature children of Father Yah. Amen.Such a powerful message today at church. It was about wisdom and how true friendship with God, automatically gives us wisdom.
One line at the end, in particular, stood out to me. It was about how the blessings God gives us, can become a curse if we're not truly ready. She spoke about lust and how some parents, for never having dealt with it, molest their own children. It was so powerful.
I'll continue to be patient for what God is doing in me.
(1) I hate religion and do not care for the church system because they both keep people from becoming mature children in Yah. I believe in no one, but Christ and His Father's work in, through, and around me. I will always favor being Spirit-led.(1) The difference between believing in christianity and believing in christians
(2) A thread for us to share how our faith has evolved from how it began to what it is today
