And His brightness was as the light; He had horns coming out of His Hand: and there was the hiding of His power. Habakkuk 3:4
There are times spent with thy Blessed Lord Jesus that has moved me to such tears of love for our Master; it eradicated most memories of a painful suffering season as I was taught by the King. How marvelous!
One pivotal time I love to share is during fellowship with the Holy Spirit; He lovingly led me to a video to answer me. In the video, a great leader in the Kingdom began to share the awe of God’s glory. So beautifully was it described of a time when the leader went to pray for an ailing woman and the glorious Light on her was intensely magnificent. The love of Jesus was so profound that the mother refused prayer for her healing!
I wept in awe of the mother’s love for our Beloved King. As I delighted in Jesus, He revealed His answer to my tears of prayer for my healing. Preciously, He rested on me, yet I was not content in the suffering. I wanted what I knew Jesus in His Presence alone could give me; a miracle.
After hearing the leader share this testimony, I began to ponder about my love for our Lord, the Healer. If thy Lord had sent someone to me as I rested in Him would I love my Lord more than what He could give to me? In His goodness, the Lord had graced the dear mother with a grace to suffer. Did my love for My Lord outweigh my present sufferings to refuse healing for a time?
Family, His grace is sufficient. I remained by His grace worshiping and loving Him more! The Lord is ever-faithful. When we yield; He teaches us how to suffer with grace. “He openeth not His mouth.” Isaiah 53:7
It is written:
He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Isaiah 53:3
He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. Isaiah 53:7
In His life on Earth, our Lord taught us how to suffer and how to wait. It was the joy that was set before Him that caused Christ Jesus to endure the cross. Hebrews 12:2. And it is His Joy that is our reward after we have suffered awhile to make us perfect, stablish, strengthen and settle us.
Beautiful Jesus, we honor and adore You: our Healer!
