When Confusion Comes
Whether you grew up in church, dropped out of the church, or still attend one; you will no doubt encounter times when what you've learned, what is preached, what the Bible teaches or a prophetic word contradicts real life experiences.
In the passage from Jeremiah 30 God speaks to Israel saying "I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’ declares the LORD." He's still saying that to us today!!!!
Whenever real-life experiences causes confusion, ongoing stress, or wounding it's the place where God wants to meet you. But it's also the place where you may want to:
Limp along instead of walking the healing journey
Believe what you've been taught and assume you're doing something wrong. It robs you of the ability to think for yourself.
Live a shallow life and shallow relationships
Settle for a shallow faith or quit on God altogether
Most of all, it makes for crazy making, circular thinking. Here's what I mean.
I Limped along. I assumed everyone else was right and I was wrong. I've felt the deep down shame.
