To Those Blown Over

You've tumbled and been tripped, an ax has come against your trunk and gales have blown you over...

It was a long time ago when you fell down, when even your brothers despised you... but you kept your heart shielded in obedience.

'I have found in David the son of Jesse a man after my heart, who will do all my will.' (Acts 13:22)

"God is still looking for imperfect men and women, whose hearts love to do His will. And when He finds a willing soul, He himself takes care of the sanctification". ~ Peter Barnes

The good Lord no more seeks perfection than we can offer it to Him. It is the care within a heart He weighs.

"Jewellers make their precious treasures, out of precious materials. Christ makes His precious things, out of dross". ~ Charles Spurgeon.

The lost and the lame will cry out to Me and I will hear. I shall assemble them as a canopy of prophets who will bear My name and bring Me honor. My Spirit's power shall be upon them.

It is the heart of the Lord to honor those the hearts of men won't:

For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him. (2 Chronicles 16:9)

Those who are blown over and guard the heart will always re-shoot in new places, but only ever upwards.
