1 Samuel 2:30b
…But now the Lord declares, “Far be it from Me–for those who honor Me I will honor, and those who despise Me will be insignificant and contemptible.”
My heart aches for My children. I could easily intervene and spare you of every heartache and pain. However, there is much to gain from each of your circumstances. This is how you learn and grow, this is how you help others, because you have walked through the fiery trials. Others need you to share with them, it brings My heart down to earth and they can see how real we are together.
I cannot step in right away as you would desire, you need to learn to come to Me and ask as well. You have a choice, a decision to pick Me, or to continue on your own. I won’t step in and make the decision for you, because then it’s not real or meaningful, it must come from your heart. Just like an apology… you’ve been there… either you were told to apologize or you told someone to and it came out begrudgingly with an attitude. It’s because it was forces and didn’t come from the heart with remorse and meaning. That’s why I step back, it has to come from you and the depths of your being… that’s when there is true meaning. Those who honor Me I will honor.
