What To Do When Someone Does You Wrong

PRAY FOR THEM!

Mat 5:43-48 ESV
(43)  "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.'
(44)  But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
(45)  so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
(46)  For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?
(47)  And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?
(48)  You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

You may want to tell someone like it is about their stinking sin and problem, and there is a time for a loving open rebuke, but also a time not to cast your pearls before the swine, lest they turn and trample on you. How do you know when it is the appropriate time for each? Get still and listen to the Voice of the Holy Spirit showing you what the Father says to do.

His will may be for you to simply exercise prayer for them so you can release any temptation to be bitter towards them. Don't be caged in with bitterness when you've been done wrong… pray for them who have despitefully used you. You can do it and it is not based upon how you feel about that person, it is done with faith! Even our faith is the victory that has overcome the world.

1Jn 5:4 ESV
(4)  For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world–our faith.

Keep on smiling and loving! No matter what has occurred it is not bigger than God's love!

With His extravagant blessings of His Love to you,

The Never Changing Security Of Who YAH Is!

Psa 9:7-10 ESV
(7)  But the LORD sits enthroned forever; He has established His throne for justice,
(8)  and He judges the world with righteousness; He judges the peoples with uprightness.
(9)  The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.
(10)  And those who know your name put their trust in You, for You, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You.
 

Kings of this world will come and go, but the LORD sits enthroned forever. Take some time today and think upon these Scriptures and let them sink deep into your spirit and soul. We have the surety of who He is and we have no reason to be afraid. He will not forsake His people who put their trust in Him and are genuinely seeking Him.

Be blessed with the greatness of His Love!

The River Of YAH Is In You! You Are Not Alone!

Don't you dare give up! You have the victories! Says the LORD! HALLELUJAH!

Psa 46:4-5 ESV
(4)  There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High.
(5)  God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved; God will help her when morning dawns.
 
It may look like things around you show that God is not near you, but let me just encourage you and I pray the reality of this vs 5 sinks deep into your spirit and soul. HE IS IN THE MIDST OF YOU! YOU WILL NOT BE MOVED! When you've done all that you can do…just stand! You shall not be moved! 
 
Psa 62:5  For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from Him
Psa 62:6  He only is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken
Psa 62:7  On God rests my salvation and my glory; my mighty rock, my refuge is God
 
Faith acts upon what it sees before it receives. The eyes of faith will walk on the water, move mountains, stand strong in the LORD despite the circumstance. DON'T YOU GIVE UP! Your deliver has come! In the morning comes the joy! Come on! PRAISE HIM! Shake off that oppression! Amen. Praise is a mighty weapon that you have and that River of YAH is in you. Let it pour out! Drink from the River of His Love. Drink deeply child! Ohhh… for the journey ahead of you is very great! You will need it for the journey ahead…His Love! Drink from His River daily! Nightly! Oh the journey is great! Be encouraged! GLORY!

Shepherds Be Warned Of Selfish Motives

There is a shifting coming in the way "Church" is done and it will be intense. Those who have been in ministries for the wrong motives God will judge. God will bring to light that what has been hidden in the dark and He will raise up the Prophets to dig through the walls to expose the wicked Babylonian system. There is nothing wrong with having wealth but when the sheep have become thin and the shepherds fat then there is a problem. God will judge. 

 
Eze 34:1-4 ESV
 
(1)  The word of the LORD came to me:
(2)  "Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel; prophesy, and say to them, even to the shepherds, Thus says the Lord GOD: Ah, shepherds of Israel who have been feeding yourselves! Should not shepherds feed the sheep?
(3)  You eat the fat, you clothe yourselves with the wool, you slaughter the fat ones, but you do not feed the sheep.
(4)  The weak you have not strengthened, the sick you have not healed, the injured you have not bound up, the strayed you have not brought back, the lost you have not sought, and with force and harshness you have ruled them.
 
Eze 34:10-11 ESV
(10)  Thus says the Lord GOD, Behold, I am against the shepherds, and I will require My sheep at their hand and put a stop to their feeding the sheep. No longer shall the shepherds feed themselves. I will rescue My sheep from their mouths, that they may not be food for them.
(11)  "For thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I, I Myself will search for My sheep and will seek them out.
 
 
 
Be blessed with His extravagant love!

Up! Esacape to Zion! You Who Dwell With The Daughter of Bablyon

You can be sure the LORD will deal with those who have touched the apple of His eye. Get on God's side the winning side! Flee the ways of the world and run to Him through the Blood of Yeshua!

Zec 2:1-13 ESV
(1)  And I lifted my eyes and saw, and behold, a man with a measuring line in his hand!
(2)  Then I said, "Where are you going?" And he said to me, "To measure Jerusalem, to see what is its width and what is its length."
(3)  And behold, the angel who talked with me came forward, and another angel came forward to meet him
(4)  and said to him, "Run, say to that young man, 'Jerusalem shall be inhabited as villages without walls, because of the multitude of people and livestock in it.
(5)  And I will be to her a wall of fire all around, declares the LORD, and I will be the glory in her midst.'"
(6)  Up! Up! Flee from the land of the north, declares the LORD. For I have spread you abroad as the four winds of the heavens, declares the LORD.
(7)  Up! Escape to Zion, you who dwell with the daughter of Babylon.
(8)  For thus said the LORD of hosts, after his glory sent me to the nations who plundered you, for he who touches you touches the apple of his eye:
(9)  "Behold, I will shake my hand over them, and they shall become plunder for those who served them. Then you will know that the LORD of hosts has sent me.
(10)  Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion, for behold, I come and I will dwell in your midst, declares the LORD.
(11)  And many nations shall join themselves to the LORD in that day, and shall be my people. And I will dwell in your midst, and you shall know that the LORD of hosts has sent me to you.
(12)  And the LORD will inherit Judah as his portion in the holy land, and will again choose Jerusalem."
(13)  Be silent, all flesh, before the LORD, for he has roused himself from his holy dwelling.

Peter’s Change of Heart is a Lesson to be Learned

Apostle Peter had a very aggressive personality in doing things for the Lord, yet that same personality caused him to sin and deny the Lord Jesus when he said he wouldn't. The statement he made "Though they all fall away….I will never fall away" was filled with a wrong attitude of boasting and not humility.

Mat 26:33 ESV  Peter answered Him, "Though they all fall away because of You, I will never fall away."

It is good to have a positive confession that is strong to show one being able to do something, especially for the Lord, but what will happen if the fruit of our words come to try us? Do we really have what it takes to back up such a statement? We should use caution and be wise with what we say. For it is better to not vow than to make a vow and not perform it.

Ecc 5:4 ESV  When you vow a vow to God, do not delay paying it, for He has no pleasure in fools. Pay what you vow.

Perhaps this is why Peter wrote to think it not strange when the fiery trials test our faith as he thought about the former testing of his words and how he failed them with his faith.

1Pe 4:12-14 ESV  Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you.  (13)  But rejoice insofar as you share Christ's sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when His glory is revealed.  (14)  If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.

I want you to hear what Peter said "If you are insulted for the name of Christ". I believe Peter could have received this revelation as he thought about the time he denied Christ those three times. Now he reveals here what he learned from that hard lesson that broke him and brought him to humility before the Lord.

Take notice when Jesus approached Peter at the shore after His resurrection He asked him if he loved Him three times, and Peter in response did not say "Yes, Lord; You know that I love you more than all of these", rather it was simply a humble "Yes, Lord; You know that I love You." Here the Lord did many things for Peter with these 3 times of questioning him of whether he loved Him or not. One of those things this accomplished was re-affirming to Peter his Apostolic calling of who he was.

I sat thinking of these three questions from Jesus to Peter and how he must have felt so relieved to hear the Lord say, "Feed My Lambs". How this must have comforted Peter's heart to know that the Lord was still able to use him despite the former denial and failing to perform his vow. Not only was it "Feed My Lambs", but also "Tend My sheep." I believe the lambs represent the new converts who need to be fed the pure milk of the Word, and the sheep are the mature flock who are walking strong in the Lord but still need that Apostolic authority to lead them like a shepherd giving them instruction with stronger meat.

Joh 21:15 ESV  When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of John, do you love Me more than these?" He said to Him, "Yes, Lord; You know that I love You." He said to him, "Feed My lambs."

Let us walk in humility before the Lord and think not so highly of our own selves.

Rom 12:3 ESV  For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.

You are loved in Jesus,

How To Keep Your Peace In A Wicked World

Php 4:8-9 KJV  Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.  (9)  Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

This is how we keep the peace of God with us in a world that is filled with wickedness. Love looks to the good. Instead of turning on the news to see the bad reports, open up the Word to see the Good reports that He has promised to you. Receive the daily load of benefits He has for you.

Psa 68:19 KJV  Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.

Dig in the Word and find them! Keep your mind fixed upon Him! Isa 26:3

How To Prove and Know The Will Of God For Your Life

Rom 12:2 ESV  Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

How can you know and prove the will of God? It is by staying in His Word and renewing your mind with it daily. You can't renew your mind by listening to the world and its view points from tv shows, newspapers, etc.,.. You will only find the will of God and know it by fellowship with Him through the Word.

Stay in the Word so you can prove and know the will of God for your life in every area and don't get deceived by the lusts of this world and its deceptions. The world will always try to pull one away from Christ with its passions and things offered for the flesh. You don't have to let it! Don't allow it to remove that first love you have for Christ! If we are friends with it then we are the enemies of God and that's a very bad place to be for sure.

Jas 4:4 ESV  You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.

Stay true to Christ! You are loved in Jesus.
