Devotional Tea 47: Have You Been to the Threshing Floor?

Scripture: Luke 15:17-19 (KJV):

And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee, And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants. 

Meditation:
Trials teach us what we are; they dig up the soil, and let us see what we are made of. ― Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Have you been to the threshing floor? Are you on the threshing floor? That is where men and women are revealed to themselves. That is where destinies are settled, where men and women are made. You will not, you cannot enter into the fullness of what God has for you until you have been to your threshing floor. That is where the unshakeable is separated from the shakable. That is where visions and callings are made clear. 

Have you been to your threshing floor?

Have you been circumcised? Have the excesses in your life been brought to light and cutaway? Are the things in your life, covering God’s glory, been taken away? Have you been to the threshing floor? Thank God for the threshing floor, where a person comes to him/herself. That is where we come to know ourselves even as we are known. 

Have you been to your threshing floor?
