I was complaining to the Lord one day about a situation that made me feel hurt and ignored. This is what I felt Him say:
Remember how my friends fell asleep at the Garden of Gethsemane. When I "needed" them the most? The most important event of my life....the reason I came to the earth. They wanted to support me...they came but then the flesh became weak and they slept.
I was not offended or hurt. Because I know what is in a man. ( I see instability and distraction. )
(But Jesus did not yet entrust himself to them, because he knew how fickle human hearts can be. He didn’t need anyone to tell him about human nature,for he fully understood what man was capable of doing.) John 2: 24-25
Man is unstable, full of distraction and other things that impact his spirit and soul. Man cannot love the way I do. Man is not a stable foundation.
Doesn't my word say that " He did not trust Himself to a man because He knew what was in man?" Be wise, forgive, but don't have expectations for man ever.
Trust in ME alone. I must be your rock. I must be your best friend. I must be your highest love. Man will let you down, over and over, but I never will.
The nature of man is like waves, up and down. But I am a rock. If you trust in ME- you will never be shaken. If you trust in MAN - you will always be shaken.
Man can purpose to love as I love....yet they are limited by their flesh, events, distractions, warfare and sin. Man will make promises and forget. Man will break promises and their word. But I never will.
I love your heart and I see it.
Give your heart to me 100% and you will never be shaken.
I also sensed four more things. Isn't Jesus wonderful?!
I must immediately forgive.
That human beings love imperfectly at best.
To allow a person to learn how to love like Jesus.
That we need grace as we often hurt others accidentally.
Thank you Jesus for always being there for me! For never forgetting me, being too busy or not caring. For always having time, energy and love.
I love that I can trust you with all of my heart always. Jesus will never let you down!
This is what the LORD says: "Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who draws strength from mere flesh and whose heart turns away from the LORD. Jeremiah 17:5
Those who trust in me will never be put to shame.” Isaiah 49:23 b
