I am going through a season of deliverance. Some things in my life have to die so I can rise up and come out to receive the things God has planned for my life. Last night, God encouraged me with Isaiah 54:11-17. The part that stuck out to me the most was, “I will build you with stones of turquoise, your foundations with sapphires. I will make your battlements of rubies, your gates of sparkling jewels, and all your walls precious stones.” When God builds us he doesn’t use any old material; he uses the best of the best. Submit to him and allow him to guide you into the ultimate transformation (Job 22:21-30). Rise!
