Past the pain comes reward through faith in Jesus Christ

Dearest Church,

I urge you to reflect on this message whenever someone insults your dreams, mocks your calling, offers less than noble advice, or speaks ill of the things you hold dear. Remember, it is Jesus Christ who sustains you through it all.

Our Heavenly Father allows these challenges to fuel you, like a jetliner preparing for takeoff. If it had not been for these obstacles, you might have remained content on the tarmac. But in due time, you will soar to new heights.

Thank Jesus and bless your enemies by praying for their repentance. God sees you, listens to you, and always acts in your best interest when you learn to trust Him.

None of us start out with absolute certainty. It takes time and a refining process, as faith is forged in the fires of life. This process results in a faith that shines like a flame.

The Father says, “Those who verbally attacked you and your family during the most challenging times of your life, while you demonstrated exemplary obedience to Grace, see you as well. They regret their actions, but their time concerning you and your calling for My kingdom has passed. I have removed you from their reach to protect you from harm.”

We understand that forgiveness is essential for salvation. Therefore, we forgive those who wrongfully accused our character and made it their mission to paint a distorted image of who we are.

As Zachariah 13:9 states, “I will bring the third part through the fire and refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested. They will call upon my name, and I will answer them. I will say, ‘They are my people,’ and they will say, ‘The LORD is our God.’”

Just like airplanes have a destination and flight plan, they refuel, gradually move to the front of the line, accelerate, and take off. Remember to thank the One True God in the control tower.

Thank you, Jesus.

Sister Christine
