In a vision I keep seeing a steak cooking. The Spirit says; the natural inclination is to cut off the fat before the steak has begun to cook, so many try to do the same spiritually. But as you begin to offer your lives on the altar, I leave the fat on, I leave and “let” the troubles, the trials, and the things that make you tender towards Me.
All of those things that you would cut away, those are the things that I allow in your life to make you tender. Those very things that you would cut away are the very things that I use to cause you to draw closer to Me, to cause you to seek Me, to make you stand regardless. So that once you have gone through the difficult times, your faith will arise, and you will let nothing deter your heart from Me any longer.
These are some of the things that I use, says the Lord, I use those things to build your God-character, the man and the woman that will be like Me. So, even though you pray, and yes you should pray and come against every temptation, every trial, every test, but know that I am using some of these to cause you to grow up, to cause you to have a tender heart towards Me, to develop great endurance and patience with joy.
To develop ears to hear Me and know Me, to be sensitive towards Me. Be discerning and know that even as you stand against the attacks of the enemy, know the things that he means for your harm, I turn and use them for your good and growth. Be wise and understand that at the right time when your heart is very tender, I cut those things away, little by little so that you will be tender towards Me and Me alone and.
You will have the season of your Father God throughout your very life. This is My plan and this is My desire for you. Never forget that everything that has come across your life, has been noted by Me, so if you will let Me, I will use it to make you tender, to make you more flavorful, to make your more seasoned like Me. It is My plan and it is My purpose, though the enemy means those things to destroy you, I turn them to your good!
“For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light” Colossians 1:9-12.
“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He also has planted eternity in men’s hearts and minds [a divinely implanted sense of a purpose working through the ages which nothing under the sun but God alone can satisfy], yet so that men cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end” Ecclesiastes 3:11.
