Its over NOW

Today through reading a book it was ministered to me: You can stand the pain!
It was something BOTH well taken but lightly received. See the truth for me and I would conclude for most of us is that even if we think we can take the pain we would still just as well NOT experience the pain. We need to admit we all love to receive the prophetic words and the teaching messages that tell us the storm has passed, the struggle is over, and the new day is here. I am RIGHT there with you because I think right now there are so many us feeling battered and beaten up on the inside. And we feel like we don't want to handle another one of life's storm.
Know today according to 2 Corinthians 4:8-10 We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not drive to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. Through suffering, our bodies continue to share in the death of Jesus so that the life of Jesus may also be seen in our bodies.
Still there are times we just want to numb the pain and pray the storm away. We plead and beg for God to take it away or make it depart from us. As far as we are concerned it has been LONG enough in the fiery furnace or the den of lions and we try to reason with our loving heavenly Father that in no uncertain terms we want OUT! God is not to be understood but to be obeyed so even if you are still where you don' t want to BE just know that He is right there with you and you well able to stand what you are going through. It may not be what you feel like hearing but it is truth and the only thing that will keep you while you are on your way out.
I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying a little while now and you will be out of what is already over. I hear the Spirit of the Lord saying just a little bit more processing and this you shall see HIS glory in your life.
Today in spite of what we can point out that is wrong He wants us to openly express our gratitude.
He has been preparing you for kingdom work and the truth is some of us today are NO WHERE near the people we were this time last year.
Promotion always comes after Processing so be encouraged and look to where you are going and NOT where you've been. Master Breakthrough really is HERE for you NOW. Be Blessed, Manie
