Good day fellow believer! I was led to this message for everyone to reflect on that heartache and pain is part of life. It can either bring us closer to the One who can transform the difficulties of life into fruit, or it can make us bitter, angry, and full of resentment. For many they chose the latter. They have no peace in their heart, or patience, faithfulness and self-control, for that matter. They let the hurts of the world define who they were and what their heart would produce. I hope and pray this encourages you and brings you close to God during the difficulties of your life.
“But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!” Galatians 5:22-23
But God can change all of that. If you’re a believer you are a child of God because of what Jesus has done for us. He came as one of us, in the flesh, to die for our sins, shedding His own perfect blood as the sacrifice for all time. He has given us the right to be His children and heirs of His Kingdom. It is in His unfailing and unending Grace (undeserved, forever faithful love) that we find our true existence: forgiven, redeemed, and beloved.
Your identity now resides in His love—His perfect, unconditional, and forever faithful love. It is only through Christ Jesus that your hurts from this world can be transformed into fruit of His Spirit. It is through Him alone that you can know you’re loved and that you are able to love others.
Are you finding your identity in your relationship with God or in the things of this world? Identify anything that is preventing you from truly receiving God’s love deeply and passing it on. Ask Him to remove any fear, bitterness, and pain you’ve been carrying and to instead give you His Spirit of truth so your life will become more fruitful.
Have a wonderful day as you remain in His presence.
