Just like gold goes through the necessary steps of being purified, your flesh goes through a process during your season of preparation in your singleness. Some parts of this season you will feel isolated and at times alone but God is with you. Being purged is the step that you can’t skip and must go through to be cleansed of those things that are not of God (ungodly soul ties, unclean spirits, pointless relationships, etc) and in turn (once this step is complete) to be filled with things that are of God and reflect His character and attributes. Remember…new wine cannot be poured into old wineskins!
But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith
Meekness, temperance; against such there is no law.
I must tell you the truth and be honest with you. Being purged is not easy and it is very uncomfortable, especially for your flesh; for it always at war with your spirit. Your flesh goes against the things of God (sexual perversion, etc.) while your spirit yearns and comes into agreement with the Word of God (sexual purity, humility,etc.).
There is a blessing in the pressing so don’t grow weary in the process. Let God cleanse you and clean you up. It will be well worth it. ❤
