He will take something out of you. Yes! Before God brought Eve to Adam, he removed something out of Adam, while he slept. God works when you sleep. When He takes something out, He will bring someone in. When you wait on God, it’s not a waste of time – it’s surgery time.Before God brings someone to you, He will take something out of you.

You may think you are fine, and that God should use His time to work on other people. It’s true, He needs to work on others. But God wants to send you the right person. Are you the right person He will be sending the other right person to? Waiting time is surgery time. God will remove insecurities, hurts, strongholds, financial debt, toxic people, bad attitudes, etc. Going through surgery is not fun or easy, but necessary at times for our health. Allow God to do spiritual surgery on your heart, so that you can experience good spiritual health.
What is that thing that God has been dealing with you in this season? What’s that one rib that needs to be removed? Really think about it and don’t generalize it. Don’t say, “Well, God is trying to change my whole life.” God works in specifics, not generalizations. God removed a single rib, not every bone in Adam’s body. The Holy Spirit’s conviction works in specifics. Condemnation is always general, convictions are specific. For example, condemnation says, “I am a bad person,” while conviction says, “I have a bad attitude toward my parents.” One is general, the other is specific. God wants to work on one thing at a time. The Holy Spirit convicts us of specific areas and works on them one by one. When you let God take something out, then He brings someone into our life. Allow God to work while you wait.
