When God wants to do a new thing in our lives (the thing we’ve been asking Him to do) He breaks it down and takes us back to the beginning.
He starts us again in an area, re-sets some of our thinking, obliterates an expectation.
Nonetheless going back and starting again when we’ve waited for sooo long feels like a slap to our sanctified souls.
“God I have made so much progress in my life already, why do I have to start again?”
“Why can’t you just bless and build on what I already have?”
