Love Your Enemies

Love Your Enemies

Greetings my Friends! Its hard to believe we are in mid September 2016!! Time is so precious and moves so quickly. We should make every moment count! Its important we ask God to show us His Hand in the smallest of moments and details. Its amazing how He reveals them to us when we do. A tiny example I recently experienced was God showing me where a missing shoe was.. in a place I would NOT have thought to look, on my own. God made it clear where to find it. I know that seems insignificant but I ask God specifically to open my eyes and ears to His working and he DOES! I wouldn’t have thought twice about finding this shoe, (BTW, this was a special, work, shoe of my son’s) but because I ask God often to show me His little details, I notice them now. He is in the LARGE and SMALL parts of our lives and everything in between!.. understanding and grasping our COMPLETE dependence upon Him for absolutely everything and being deeply grateful for all His provisions makes life so much smoother, peaceful and purposeful. An area that can keep us from seeing the small beauties in life is unforgiveness of those that have wounded us. I know, I’ve delt with this in my own life and I stay diligent in seeking God to keep these toxins out of my life today. A healing action God uses to give us FREEDOM from people who have hurt us is to PRAY good for them! This is NOT our natural instinct. Praying joy, happiness and wholeness for some one who has deeply wronged us seems unjust! After all, why should we pray for a good, happy life for someone who has brought us pain through abuse, lies, cheating or neglect and so on.. but praying for healing for this person or people brings US HEALING. God takes these prayers and begins to melt away the sorrow and hurt in our heart. It can be extremely difficult in the beginning but as we continue to practice this principles, as God calls us too, we start to feel His warmth and presence. We being to SHINE! “But I tell you, LOVE your enemies and pray for those who persecute you” Matt 5:44. We can be kind and loving towards toxin people from a distance and PRAY for them. via Facebook Pages http://ift.tt/2bbN1dO
