I sent this devotion to a friend this morning because not only was it on point for the season I am walking through it is anointed and GOOD.

After she received it she wrote back, “What is your interpretation here?”

And here was my response: There is a stripping. There is a pruning. There is a purification process. To be used in the fullness and in the capacity in which God is going to use us, use me, we need to be stripped of ourselves to be utterly clothed in Him. For me, I needed to slow down in order to hear His voice loud and clear. I needed to be stripped of busy so I could do His work and not my own. I needed stillness in order to be busy within Him.

We ask for the more. We pray for time, we pray for more patience, we pray for peace, we pray for more of Him yet we, I don’t slow down enough even to hear His gentle whispers. We don’t slow down enough to respond to the nudges He continuously entrenches upon our souls and we don’t slow down enough to take inventory of the fire of flames He is gifting within us.

Although I wouldn’t choose this season I am trekking through and the heartache it’s bringing, I am leaning in closer, stripping some dead skin off my flesh, releasing control and my ideas of what should be so I can be in complete alignment with where He wants me to go. I have spent countless hours in prayer, on my knees, renouncing lies, repenting of things that I have held onto and asking for forgiveness in areas i have been in bondage. I have been praying against spirits that are not of God, cleaning my house, my temple so there is nothing keeping me out of complete and perfect alignment for His will over my life. I can’t control a lot but what I can control is what I put into my temple and how I am keeping it clean. As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord ?

As I surrender in a posture of enduring the stripping so I am cleansed and available for the next steps in the pathways in which He is leading me, I am overwhelmed with gratitude as I walk the tightrope of faith blindfolded.

For that I am blessed. For that I am thankful. For that I will bear this cross each and every day because if my suffering leads to just one person knowing and accepting the depths of love our Abba Father, GOD has for us, well then it is ALL with it. To live is Christ, to die is gain.

Love you all deeply. PLEASE continue to pray for me and my family. Also, PLEASE let me know how I can be PRAYING for YOU today. We are to bear one another’s burdens, weep with those who weep and rejoice with those who rejoice. Let’s come together and fight in the heavenlies for one another. We have this because HE has us ❤️??
