As I was praying for Joey, I asked Him to just stop and fix a situation she’s in. I know He can. He’s the Master Fixer. He can heal anything. He can stop anything from happening. And He can make anything happen. It’s entirely up to Him.
But He reminded me that He let’s us go through tough times and tight spots because He loved us.
He said He did it to protect us and strengthen us. What??… Isn’t that the opposite? I know He’s the Master Protector and Master Strengthener, but I forget He uses tough and bad situations as He pleases! Okay I admit, they’re probably more effective.
Tough times are like vaccines pumped into our lives.
He’s in control just like the doctor control’s the dosage. He has our situation under control no matter what.
He tells us it will hurt and it might even leave a permanent scar. He doesn’t lie about it being just an ant bite. He knows what a punctured skin and what scars feels like.
He knows our body will be able to take it and overcome it, thus effectively be immune to it.
So He tells us to just hold on. You may feel a bit sick from it, but keep on keeping on. You can take the punches.
