I recently had a word given to me to give to someone I knew who had asked me to pray for their situation. They have since told me that I should share this word. They believed that this word could help another, as it at helped them. So I will share it but not the persons name or situation.
This is the word that I had received;
‘You have had someone hurt you. This pain was not caused by their actions but because of what they did not do. You feel hurt and are disappointed. Their actions did not live up to the words the spoke to you. They made a commitment and they failed you. I know exactly how this feels. You cannot count the numerous times per day people who have committed their lives to Me, that have turned back to the world the second they have a problem. Instead of turning to Me, they return to doing things as the rest of the world does.
The second troubles come you want to turn and walk away and say that it is no big deal. I want you think about what would happen if I gave up on you that easy. If I turned from you every time you disappointed Me, hurt Me, or even cheated on Me, etc…. Every time you have been hurt, I have been hurt. Every time you were rejected or abused, so was I. Now multiply your pain by an infinite amount. What you go through with others, I go through too. I don’t give up on you. I will never leave you or forsake you.
Yes you have been hurt by these people, but can you see now how I feel? Can you see how much I love those who have hurt and wronged Me? You may be the only one who is bringing my Light into these peoples dark world. Don’t give up on them. They have never met anyone to show them my love before and they do not know how to react. The spirits operating in their lives are don’t want to let go. Yet My Light can drive away the darkness in their life. You carry this Light within you, like a lantern in a dark world. Let them learn of my Love through you. Another might now show them this love. Remember Love is patient, and love is kind and it also long suffering. ‘
To put it in other words. God puts up a lot with the mistakes we make, the pain we cause and He does not give up on us. There are bad relationships that we have to escape, because they can and will cost us our life if we don’t leave. This message is for those of us who have been slighted in any way that hurts us, we need to remember the pain of a Father who sent His Son to pay the price for those pains. How much pain Jesus suffered for our sins. We sometimes will have to let go of people who we cannot help and will only continue to hurt us and themselves. Yet our first reaction to pull away at the first sign of trouble we should rethink. Sometimes God will use these people to teach us, smooth out our rough spots like sandpaper.
Please take a moment and read 1 Corinthians 13.
