Honestly, I stayed at least 10 minutes in front of my screen wondering how I was going to start writing this post.
Hi everyone, this article finds you doing well.
Today I’m coming to tell you something: it’s turning around for your good.
I was reading chapter 12 of the book of Revelation and there was something that particularly inspired me. Please take some time to read some few verses that I have selected from the chapter.
2 She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. 3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. 4 Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born.
The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the wilderness, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpent’s reach.
This woman it’s you, it’s me, it’s all of us. We regularly face difficult situations, situations that are beyond us, situations that push us to questions, we sometimes find ourselves lost, lacking strength. Sometimes we have the impression that situations are bigger, and stronger than us.
Let me tell you one thing; this situation that you are going through, God is going to use it for your elevation. Sometimes we do not even realize, we forget one thing, our God does not do things just randomly. He knows very well what’s happening to you, he sees very well what’s going on and he knows how he’s going to use this situation and this distress to lift you up, to make you stronger, to take you up to other dimensions. If you shed tears, your shed tears will be used to water the seeds you will plant in your next season.
In my imagination the dragons have wings. In verse 4 of chapter 12 of the book of Revelation, we see that the dragon’s plan is to hurt the woman by devouring her child, he wants to attack a woman suffering, a person in distress. BUT GOD HAPPENED. In verse 12 of the same chapter, we see that the woman who was once attacked by the dragon now has wings. What I understand personally is that the wings were taken from the dragon and were placed on the woman so that she could run away and that fly “where she would be taken care of […] “
I come to encourage you dear friend. Do not be discouraged by the situations that are coming your way now, no matter how long the night lasts, the sun always gets up. See this situation as a training that will allow you to prepare for your next season, look at this situation as a preparation to enter another dimension. Any weapon formed against you will be used to secure your victory after this fight. While you are in this situation, take the time to ask God to order your steps. Ask him to help you see clearly the plan he has for you. Give Him your life and trust Him.
He is working behind the scenes for your good. The God that you serve is working in your favor. For [He knows] the plans that He has for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11).
God is going to grant you favor and blessings in abundance. Do not lose hope.
