I Want to Use Your Wound to Heal Somebody

Was very reluctant when I got the prompting to do it.
But He said unto me ...

Show that wound you are hiding,
I want to heal somebody through it.

Show your weakness, the one you are ashamed of,
I want to use it to make someone strong and courageous.

Show your struggles,
I want to encourage somebody through them.

Tell them that you couldn't manage it,
That they may see that I have done it in you.

Tell them that you had no chance,
That they may see that I make ways where there are none.

But Lord, I will lose friends if they know these things.
But He said unto me ...
Are you concerned about friends?
Gideon had so many people around him;
He considered all the 32,000 of them as soldiers,
But some were afraid while others were unvigilant.
I helped him sort out the ‘true soldiers’.

So, you are concerned about ‘friends!’
Like I helped Gideon sort out ‘true soldiers’,
I will help you sort out ‘true friends’.

He told me …
There are two extremes that test the quality of a friend:
i) He who stays with you even after you've lost it all, including your face;
ii) He who celebrates with you when you come from behind and go beyond where he seems to stagnant. He is not paralyzed by envy.

Otherwise,
There are friends of your fame;
Friends of your money;
Friends of your figure,
Friends of your strength, etc.

If you lose such friends, you shall have gained instead.

Finally Lord,
What about this 'small' matter of people I cherish in the faith, and who combine to be great friends, advising me against telling this story?

He said unto me ...
Yes, you are right! That is a small matter although it may look 'big',
The question is, did you hear from Me, or not?
If you did hear from Me, then you know what to do, don't you?

So, I nervously told my story: Dreams of Hope and Visions of Divine Intervention

Come and hear,
all ye that fear
God, and I will declare
what he hath done for my soul

(Psalm. 66:16).
