Do you wonder why you feel rejected? Is your mind racing to understand why you weren’t seen by others?
My beautiful bride, haven’t you read that man sees the outward appearance but I, your LORD, see your heart?
A heart that worships Me when no one is watching.
A heart that wants to obey Me no matter what it looks like.
A heart that wants to walk in purity.
A heart that wants to live in submission and surrender.
I kept you in hidden moments to develop your character because I chose you.
You are My best wine, processed and crushed through My hands for My purpose. Man chose the wine by seeing how it looks on the outside, assuming that is the best wine.
I keep the best wine until last as I propel them to the next level.
You gave Me, your YES.
I take you from glory to glory in reshaping you, redesigning you, and recalibrating you.
I cried out, “FATHER, Your will be done,” as I was being crushed in the winepress, and the oil was released from Me to pour in you and on you.
Do not be afraid of My fire!
Activation: Ask the Holy Spirit to show you what kind of season you are in. If you find that you are in a season of character formation, give thanks to the Lord for what He is doing in your life. Talk to Holy Spirit about where you are being developed and ask for strength to wait for His timing in the process.
But God told Samuel, “Looks aren’t everything. Don’t be impressed with his looks and stature. I’ve already eliminated him. God judges persons differently than humans do. Men and women look at the face; God looks into the heart.”1 Samuel 16:7 (MSG)
7 He was oppressed, [yet when] He was afflicted, He was submissive and opened not His mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so He opened not His mouth.
8 By oppression and judgement He was taken away; and as for His generation, who among them considered that He was cut off out of the land of the living [stricken to His death] for the transgression of my [Isaiah’s] people, to whom the stroke was due?Isaiah 53:7-8 (AMPC)
