When I was a young girl we didn’t have mobile phones, computers or any type of digital devices.
We used cameras to take pictures which had to go through a process of development. A negative was taken through several steps before a photograph was formed.
The film was first taken into a dark room. It was then soaked in water, then converted into a metallic silver.
It was then rinsed in clean water, and it was finally perfected by light. As the photograph was being developed it was handled carefully to avoid any damage, discoloration, or fading.
We live in a generation who has been spoiled with modern technology. We are able to take pictures instantly from just about any place in the world with a cell phone or other digital device.
In the same way, so many of us resist the process that God brings us through, because we are looking for an instant “modern technology” transformation.
Every one of us have been taken from a negative situation but so many of us are undeveloped because we haven’t allowed Him to continue with the process in our lives.
It is imperative that we spend time cultivating our relationship with Jesus in the dark room. We need to allow Him to take us through the process of development.
This dark room is where our character is developed as our fleshly desires are crucified. This is the place of heartfelt repentance.
This is the place where He trains us to hear His voice and know His ways. This is where our gifts are cultivated and dreams are birth.
This is where new ideas are developed and new assignments are released. This Is where we place our prayer requests and receive answers to our prayers.
This is where the Word of God becomes alive with revelation and vision is established.
The LORD says; “Allow Me to transform your life in this place. Allow Me to work in you and through you to bring every negative situation into a positive.
Do not rebel and do not resist the process. Some say, it is too difficult but others understand that I am walking with them through it all.
The process is necessary to be conformed and developed into My image. This is the place where all impurities and defilement will be destroyed and all bruises and blemishes will be erased.
This is the place where the rough edges will be smooth out, broken hearts will be restored and wounds from the past will be removed.
The memories of the afflictions and traumas will be wiped away. This is the place where your mind will be renewed and you will learn to walk in integrity and grow in maturity.
This place is necessary for your spiritual growth and fruit that will remain. Just as there is a process of maturation in the natural life, there is also a process in your spiritual life.
Trust Me when you feel that the process is too challenging. My plans will be established through this process of development.
This is where transformation will take place. This is where you will learn to walk, This is the place where you will receive healing and learn to grow into the person that you were created to be,” says The LORD.
“Now I’ll listen carefully for your voice and wait to hear whatever you say. Let me hear your promise of peace — the message every one of your godly lovers longs to hear. Don’t let us in our ignorance turn back from following you,” Psalm 85:8 (The Passion Translation).
“When you sit enthroned under the shadow of Shaddai, you are hidden in the strength of God Most High,” Psalm 91:1 (The Passion Translation).
“Arise, my dearest. Hurry, my darling. Come away with me! I have come as you have asked to draw you to my heart and lead you out,” Song of Solomon 2:10 (The Passion Translation).
