Devotional Nuggets – #63

I hope you get some deep understanding and wisdom from this story. Read and be blessed. (For those who believe in the word of God)

Read below:

I took my cloth to my tailor and asked him to fix the little opening near the pocket.

The man turned the cloth inside out and then began to TEAR the pocket with his hands… Hah! I was like, “I said you should sew, not tear”.

So I shouted, ‘You are tearing my cloth o’. But he replied, “I KNOW”.

Those two words sank into me like a heavy stone sink in water. I couldn’t talk anymore.

He’s the tailor, and I’m just a customer. Even though I couldn’t relate tearing with sewing but the Tailor says “I KNOW”.

God is saying, ‘I KNOW’ to you today.

He hears your complaints.

Father, I need a job, it’s been long I finished school…. “I KNOW”

Father, My fiancee just left me… ‘I KNOW’.

I have no money to pay my rent… ‘I KNOW’

I have no money to cater for my needs… ‘I KNOW’

I am waiting to have children….I KNOW

I need a husband….I know

I can’t pay school fees…..I know

I just lost my job and I have a family…. “I KNOW”

So many times when the Lord is fixing us, He starts by ‘tearing’ us. Tearing our confidence in ourselves, Tearing all our philosophies, Tearing our pride and fake humility, Tearing the things we call dear and giving us the truly dear things.

The only thing necessary is wisdom. Wisdom to know when it is the Lord and when it isn’t the Lord. The devil tears to KILL, God tears to FIX. God tears the old to give you the new.

God’s tearing fire only refines His own. God’s tearing approaches only yields the peaceable fruit of Righteousness.

So in reality, God tears no man, He only makes. We call it TEARING, He calls it MAKING. We call it BREAKING, He calls it BUILDING. He knows you have a need even before you ask. That’s why when we complain… He responds thus: ‘I KNOW’.

For I KNOW the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. – Jeremiah 29:11

    1. Thank you so much, for this wonderful remark. It’s just inspiring. Waiting time is not always palatable but it’s worth it at the end when God is involved. Sunday blessings to you and yours. Hugs. 🙂
