Diamonds Are Forever

Even the hardest rocks crumble with enough pressure and heat over time. But creations process creates the most beautiful things out of pressure. Remember no pain, no gain. What was once ordinary is now precious and sought after, the diamond.

Like gold, diamonds are one of Gods most beautiful creations, and are formed under the most grueling conditions. Another of Gods creations is also formed by difficult and sometimes crushing circumstances. God’s most precious creation. Created by the potter with love, the saint.

God created us with more love and compassion then we will ever know. Because He created us knowing that the freedom He gave us would be abused, causing Him to have to give His Son’s life to save ours.

Jesus, the God man was crushed for our infirmities, so we could still be united with our creator, and be transformed into diamonds, that’s true love.

Sanctification is the process, and even Jesus was sent into the wilderness to begin the process before He was released into ministry. The process was finished on the cross, and the empty tomb is the evidence of His love for us.

So many times we blame the devil for what God allows to mold us into diamonds, Heb 12:4-12. Like Jesus, we are perfected through suffering, and when God’s through, we shine like stars, Phil 2:14-16.

Something else that’s beautifully created out of an irritating grain of sand is the pearl. An object of wonder that was once painful to a clam is now a thing of great value. Like the clam, the saint when matured is a fruit bearing, God glorifying life.

We are pearls and diamonds of Gods gifting. When the spirit moves we sometimes react emotionally. Some personalities can react more emotional than others, and some don’t like emotion at all. The tough part is not allowing it to become an offense, but in balance we can all be under His control, and not out of control.

Effective harvesters, shining like diamonds, not critical Christians. Maturing prayer warriors become pearls that everyone wants around. They’ve gone through the fire and through prayer, they haven’t burned out. Our shields become tempered through prayer, and an intercessory congregation is a satanic missile defense system. That none of his darts can penetrate.

A city on a hill, built by Christ are saints shining like diamonds. The world is desperate to see these living stones, not because they agree on everything. But because they don’t and it doesn’t tear them apart, Gal 5:14-15.

Diamonds are forever, with pearls of prayer, only the best is good enough for God, whose love we must declare. Let us find our place in Gods building of grace. Let us do our part before the trumpet calls us to depart. May He keep us strong that we would be blameless that day. He’s our life and fellowship; let’s build a bridge of unity throughout the USA.
