Hello Beloved! We pray you have been receptive to Love's coaching, showing up, doing the little you can and trusting God to supply your needs as you pursue His vision of health for your life. This week we encourage you to embrace the truth you know.
There is a prevailing theory that people do the good they know how to. That when we see struggle in a particular area it is because there is ignorance. It is something that is typically taken for granted in the field of education, so that the inclination of the teacher is to engage in collaborative problem solving so that the student may be helped and experience success. But, years of teaching have shown me that this is not a truth, though it is sometimes true.
Sometimes the struggle persists not because of ignorance of what is required, or an inability live in the truth, but because of an unwillingness to surrender to the demands the truth you know will require of you. Will I have to wake up early? Will I have to work extended hours? Will I have to appear weak in the sight of my peers? Will I have to... You fill in the blanks. But, true and lasting transformation only happens when we collaborate with the truth we know. And never are we, as children of God, unhelped in living in agreement with the truth. His grace He supplies so that we may enter into abundance.
What have been your excuses? Pray that God will undo the agreements you have made with standards beneath His righteous standard for your life. Pray that God will bring you into agreement, spirit, soul and body, with the truth you already know.
Happy temple building!
Take care. Bless many.
