I have come to the realisation this morning that I am different, that I am changed. When I was in my deepest darkest days, I would cry out to God and beg Him to do something, to fix whatever wrong with me, to lift off the awfulness I was feeling. But I realised this morning that that is exactly what He has been doing. It didn’t happen with a bang as I thought (or hoped!) it would, but a truth here, a revelation there (and not necessarily a big one), building me on a sure foundation, brick by brick.
I had been looking at all that needs to be still fixed in me, and despairing, instead of looking at what He has already done and how far I have come. And for that Lord, I truly thank You, from the bottom of my changed heart.
The Lord your God will drive those nations out ahead of you little by little. You will not clear them away all at once, otherwise the wild animals would multiply too quickly for you. Deuteronomy 7:22 NLT
