I have felt the pain of disobedience
Known the weight from the beams of sin
Felt the hammer and chisel
Experience my pillars like they’re giving in
But then you came to help me
Shored me up once you were done
Made me better than in my beginning
So that Salvation was what was won
The renovation that God puts us through may not be an enjoyable process. There is a lot of change and corrections that need to be made within us, and why we may not enjoy being renovated, it is for our own good. God receives the credit and glory for the transformations and changes that are taking place. He sees what we are doing at all times. Everything that He does for us is to build us up, to renovate us, to make us stronger, and to reconstruct us into better sons and daughters of the most high God. Ezekiel 36:36 states:
“Then the nations around you that remain will know that I, the Lord, have rebuilt what was destroyed, and I have replanted what was desolate. I, the Lord, have spoken, and I will do it.”
God is our healer, engineer, contractor, and many more. Do not give up on yourself and others when God has not given up on you. In fact, He never will. When we develop bad habits, it is very important that we have to be redirected down the path that God sees fit for us. When renovation takes place, we must also take accountability and responsibility for our actions. Who we really are is not our physical selves, but our Spirit.
May God Bless You All.
