Is this you?
For whatever reason things have become very difficult for you.
It could be in your family…
In your career…
In your ministry.
Has an area that was once very successful, very lucrative, very easy has dried up?
Is your best not good enough?
Does no one seem to understand you?
Will no one let you inside your circle?
Do you receive resistance for the good you do?
You don’t get acknowledged, while others are being celebrated.
Well, when your best isn’t good enough, that’s their problem not yours.
When no one understands you or your vision…Good. That’s why God entrusted it to you.
If no one will let you inside their circle, then maybe God is trying to build His own circle around you.
Remember that demons got restless whenever Jesus came around.
If you aren’t being celebrated, not only did Jesus not receive any ‘awards’…He was killed by His own.
He’s not dead, and the same power that raised Him from the dead is available to you.
Jesus entire earthly ministry was filled with conflict.
So, here’s your good news…
If you are at an uncomfortable place in your life…
Anything great is birthed from CONFLICT and not COMFORT.
Remember in 1 Kings Chapter 17 how the prophet Elisha was being sustained by God at the Brook of Cherith? The brook provided his water and God commanded that the ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning and evening. But, the brook dried up…
Why? Because God had to move Elisha from his place of comfort to his next assignment. Had God not allowed what was sustaining Elisha dry up. He made it uncomfortable.
In Acts Chapter 9 The Apostle Paul was going about his business when Jesus knocked him down on the road to Damascus and suddenly, he went from destroying the church to building it up.
If you have conflict in your life, maybe God has you in a place of transition.
Maybe He’s trying to birth something great from your life.
