My Dearest Child. I do not love your scars from the past. Anything that causes you pain, causes Me pain. I weep when you weep. The tears you have shed do not give Me pleasure. My heart aches when your heart aches. I am the God of all compassion. I keep your tears in a bottle and one day they shall stand in judgment against the enemy. He shall pay for hurting My Little Ones.
I do not use your hardships to teach you. The Holy Spirit is your Teacher. I am gentle and good. I heal, not hurt. I bring good from the bad, but I do not bring pain into your life. This is a lie from the pits of hell. When I created the world, it was good and perfect. There was no death, nor pain, nor sorrow. The enemy brought pain and death. The devil comes to kill, steal, and destroy.
You and I have a NEW covenant, made in the Blood of the Lamb, and sealed by the Holy Spirit of Promise. I am God the Savior. I SO LOVED the world, My Child, that I sent My Son to save your soul and rescue you from the clutches of the evil one. My Beloved Children, you were never meant to carry scars on your body or in your soul. So do not believe the voices who tell you that I love your scars. One day, you shall lose all those battle scars and exchange them for a glorious body, perfect and painless, and scar-less. The only scars in heaven will be the perfect scars of My Son.
You are perfect IN Me. No longer look at your defects, My Child, but see yourself as I see you. I see you as a Mighty Warrior. Whole in spirit, mind, body and soul. You are a NEW creation, behold, OLD THINGS have passed away, I make ALL THINGS new. Don’t look down at your scars, but look to the Perfect One, the Author and Perfecter of your faith. You are being changed into My image, from glory to glory. Forget the former things and do not dwell on the past, Beloved. Rise up, oh Mighty Warrior, from your bed of despair, for MY Strength is made PERFECT in your weakness.
“You have taken account of my wanderings; Put my tears in Your bottle. Are they not in Your book? Then my enemies will turn back in the day when I call; This I know, that God is for me” Psalm 56:8-9.
“Do not call to mind the former things, Or ponder things of the past. Behold, I will do something new, Now it will spring forth” Isaiah 43:18-19.
“The Angel of the LORD (Jesus) appeared to him and said to him, “The LORD is with you, O valiant warrior.” The LORD looked at him and said, “Go in the strength you have.” Then he said to Him, “O my Lord, if the LORD is with us, why then has all this happened to us? But I WILL BE WITH YOU,” the LORD said to him. “You will strike the enemy down as if it were one man” Judges 6:12-1.
