Somebody else needs to hear this…Your experience gave you something that God wants to use. Your crushing produced Soul wisdom. Soul wisdom is never cheap, it will cost you, you will be sifted for it. Soul wisdom will take time before it is converted into power beloved…the pain has to drain before the wisdom can be gained. Sifting is never voluntary or because of what you did beloved, sifting produces soul wisdom — not just for you but for the captives God is going to use you to set free.
Listen to what Jesus said to Peter about the purpose of soul wisdom that can only come from sifting: “But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back [from being sifted], strengthen your brothers” (Luke 22:32). Did you catch it…did you hear Jesus tell Peter what He wanted Him to do with that soul wisdom? Jesus said, “And when, not if, you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.”
Your crushing produced the wisdom that doesn’t come from books. You have that wisdom that can only come from being resurrected from hell. You don’t just know the scriptures, you know the Savior — through soul wisdom.
Let that poison drain. Let your heart heal from the battle. And when you’ve turned, it’s your turn to strengthen somebody else. You will be the light at the end of somebody’s tunnel. The usher in somebody’s dark place. The testimony for somebody else’s prayer.
Decree and declare it…”Use me God!” Amen.
