SPIRIT VITAMIN: “It’s For Our Good”

its all good
Believers as we grow closer to Christ, there’s more revelation, increased knowledge and God begins to do a separation. Many Believers can handle the revelation and knowledge because we immediately become empowered, but often Believers resist the separation from others because lets be honest, separation doesn’t always feel good to our flesh.

Yes you love this person, yes you’ve been friends since the first grade, yes you are lunch buddies at work, yes you thought he was your husband to be or she was your Ruth, but God begins to separate you. “Lord why?” I imagine Jesus saying “I know the thoughts and the plans I have towards you. This separation is not to harm you, but give you hope and a future. Ye of little faith. Trust me… Why are you doubting?” To everything there is a time and season. When you keep fruit and veggies out of season, they begin to stink, mess up the other produce around it and cause the entire environment to be unpleasant. The same thing is true in relationships. Staying connected to those God removed us from will become stinky and tarnish our purpose. Leave a banana on the counter for 30 days and see how it becomes unpleasant. Yes you’re hungry, yes you love bananas (certain relationships), but partaking is not a wise decision.

Believers, God will prune us, mold us, shift people, shift directions, but hold on to this…

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28

“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39
