So often, My children pray for Me to remove difficulties from their lives, not realizing why they are there.
You have prayed many times, My child, for Me to change your circumstances. I have allowed the circumstances to try your faith, that you may come forth as gold. I have allowed the conditions to continue that you may prosper in it.
I have allowed what you do not desire to give you new desires.
Herein lies the answer you seek of Me. I desire you would see through circumstances with new eyes, through My eternal perspective, in terms of My Kingdom.
There is no replacement, no other way I can give you these gifts I desire you have.
(I saw in the Spirit a very small child, crying fitfully. It wanted something very badly. It’s father was trying to give it what it wanted, but through its tears, the child could not see clearly and did not realize what was being offered was what it wanted. At last it saw the gift, and the crying stopped.)
Malachi 3:3: And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness.
2 Cor. 12
7 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.
8 For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.
9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
Psalm 37:4: Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
