When you are told that one of your parents is not really your parent.
25) God will repay you for the years the locust has eaten.
When I heard those words the other day, I thought of you. All the years that you didn’t know the truth. God is going to repay you for those years.
Lost years can never be restored, literally. Time once passed is forever gone. You can’t get your time back, but there is a strange and wondrous way in which God can give back to you! First of all, God does not make mistakes! HE CREATED YOU!
People created your circumstance. Don’t dwell on anything that you feel you might have missed out on. Dwell on those times in your life that left impressionable imprints on your heart (lessons learned, experiences, relationships.) We all crave love, affection, acceptance, approval from people especially our loved ones. When we feel like we aren’t capable of earning that love we begin to judge ourselves and wondering what is wrong with me.
Going through life with the absence of a love that you may have desperately wanted could cause one to measure themselves, confusion, detachment, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem….and so on and so on. This could then cause one to go through life in a state of unconsciousness, tranquilized, numb to block the pain of disappointments, doubts, fears, voids, the unknown. Living in a state of unconsciousness could cause life to be stagnant, boring, unfulfilling, uneventful.
John 10:10 says: satan came only to steal, kill and destroy. Jesus came so that we may have a real life, eternal life, a life better than we could ever dream of.
Unfortunately, satan stole your worldly identity, but he can never steal your real identity. You are a child of God! You belong to Him! Our daddy is loving, kind, faithful, generous, compassionate and He is rich.
