It is by faith that you are saved, and it is by faith that you grow in your gifts. I have deposited them in you. It is I that have created you, and the desires you have were put there by Me. I shall cause you to birth My plans.
Everything is coming together and operating according to My plan and My timetable, so do not fear. You are not disqualified! As you continue to yield to the process, more and more will be released in and through you.
For it is the broken that I can use; those that realize they can do nothing without Me. I will purify your heart. I will heal the broken places. I will touch you mightily, for I see your true heart and your true spirit. I know the deep desires that you have to know Me and My ways. That pleases Me greatly. I know that you long to love and how you want to obey.
I will lead you through the dark valley. When you cannot see the way ahead of you, do not fear, for I will never leave you or forsake you. I will help you to face the truth. I have already seen it and I am undaunted by your sin and failure. It is never too late.
Even when you think that you cannot take another step; when your legs are "broken", it is then that the Good Shepherd will carry you. Then you will learn to stay close to Him, and only follow His voice.
2 Corinthians 1:21 New Life Version (NLV)
God is the One Who makes our faith and your faith strong in Christ. He has set us apart for Himself.
Psalm 51:17 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
The sacrifice pleasing to God is a broken spirit.
God, You will not despise a broken and humbled heart.
Psalm 23:4 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
Yes, though I walk through the [deep, sunless] valley of the shadow of death, I will fear or dread no evil, for You are with me; Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort me.
