Different Approach

Bless those who persecute you. Don’t curse them; pray that God will bless them. Be happy with those who are happy, and weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with each other. Don’t be too proud to enjoy the company of ordinary people. And don’t think you know it all!
Romans 12:14‭-‬16 NLT

Blessing people that persecute us , sounds strange is it , normally the first approach is to fire back ,or fight back but in this context Jesus is suggesting blessing people who persecute us …

Persecution draws us closer to God in prayer ,it is in persecution that you see your true friends ,when you are under oppression fake friends disappear ,if your love relationship was based on money once you go bankrupt lovers disappear they jump to the next guy with cash ..

As much as being persecuted is not something to wish for ,it brings clarity to your life ,when foundations of every relationship we have in life is being tested for endurance ,Submit totally to God .the Bible is suggesting that we mustn’t curse our persecutors infact we should pray that God will bless them…

In every situation giving thanks to God for he is the author and finisher of our life ,.Our life should be totally dependent on God , human persecution then appears as a promotion once our perception of life is from God’s point of view..

Joseph was persecuted by his brothers in Genesis ,his brothers in persecuting Joseph they were channelling him to Governorship..Your enemies are in fact positioning you to your destiny…

We don’t have time to curse ,we bless them..in humility knowing that Our God has everything under control . the last line in the verse I pasted there says “And don’t think you know it all ” I think that’s where most of us struggle ,everyone wants to be heard no one wants to submit that they don’t know …but Jesus gives us a solution here as a Christian don’t think you know it all , listening attentively is a character trait of a Christian ,and our language to be seasoned with grace ..

I am highly favoured ,Jesus Christ died for my sins on the cross ,I am not worthy that sacrifice ,my life has been turned around ever since I gave my life to Christ.

A Blameless Confession

When we truly confess our sins as sin, taking responsibility for them and repenting of them, God is faithful and just to forgive them. Our wrongs toward Him or forgotten, cast as far as the east is from the west into a sea of forgetfulness and we are found blameless in His sight and before […]

The Lord WILL Forsake Us IF We Forsake Him

I ended yesterday’s post with reminding us that the Lord never leaves out the details; He stands firm and by our side as He promised. “The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.” (Ps […]

The Lord WILL Forsake Us IF We Forsake Him

Repent

“Return, you backsliding children, And I will heal your backslidings.” “Indeed we do come to You, For You are the Lord our God. Truly, in vain is salvation hoped for from the hills, And from the multitude of mountains; Truly, in the Lord our God Is the salvation of Israel. For shame has devoured The labor of our fathers from our youth— Their flocks and their herds, Their sons and their daughters. We lie down in our shame, And our reproach covers us. For we have sinned against the Lord our God, We and our fathers, From our youth even to this day, And have not obeyed the voice of the Lord our God.”


Jeremiah 3:22‭-‬25 NKJV
