In thinking of this quote..my mind started to race a little…”but if people are coming against you doesnt that mean that you got to fix something in you that is causing that???”
no………it is when YOU ARE COMING AGAINST OTHERS that you must do something to fix that!!
Let’s read that mind race again : …”but if people are coming against you doesnt that mean that you got to fix something in you that is causing that???” do you hear it …dripping between the lines…FEAR
Fear that if someone is against me there MUST be something wrong with me…that there must be something I can do to gain approval…
No..no…rest …relax…it is when I find that I am against others that I have a spirit about me that is fault-finding, critical, and angry. I am looking for offense and easily offended. At these times is when I pray that my eyes will be opened to see what is in me that is causing me to be against others…
|Rom 8:31||What shall we then say to these things? If God [be] for us, who [can be] against us?|
To often we forget that God is for us…and if God is for us we need not worry who is against us because we are not the one against another…but we must endure and learn to stand in who we truely are …We are to be loving and forgiving to one another not holding grudges and resentful…this is where we need to guard our heart when others are against us…
|Eph 4:32||And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.|
Be mindful…be alert for your thoughts…listen and hear when you find your mind speaking against other people, know that when you hear THAT VOICE in your mind that you are in need of a tune- up!! It is a que that we need to get quiet and honest with ourselves and SEE the truth of what we are doing to ourselves and others.
PS..watch out for that voice that says : If I am just MORE of something…then people will like me and affirm me. Dont live in fear of what other people think…Live in FAITH of who you are in God.
