Greetings to you all in the name of our lord Jesus Christ.
I want to share few experiences of mine, which I believe it will help you all to change in certain ways.
Many time people come to me and say that, they have been always surrounded by problems thou they have not harmed anyone, not thought about cheating someone but still they go through hurts and pain, one of the most problems we can see in churches and believers life is others use them and take them for a ride for their benefits, profits.
It’s none other than believers to the believer.In fact even me has also been one of the victims in this kind of situations like you are surrounded with people you believe, trust and yet you have been used, harmed, controlled by others, used for their benefits, because of your innocence and truthfulness.
Today we can find this kind of situations in churches and among believer’s fellowship.
- What are you going to do about this?
- How are you going to handle this situation?
- What are the solutions for this?
You might think if you are going to be little strict towards them they might feel hurt, when they don’t realize that they are hurting you by their intentional activities.
Now firstly you need to understand what bible says about you.
GOD KNEW YOU BEFORE YOU WERE BORN
Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew[a] you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations
God knew you before you were born and need not worry about what is happening around you since he will take care of your future and has already planned, all you need to do is focus on God and draw more close to him day by day.
YOU ARE CREATED TO WORSHIP GOD
God created you to worship him, your lifetime purpose is to worship God and his name should be glorified.
MEDITATE HIS WORD AND OBIDEINCE
The word of God is the ultimate solution for you to discern what is right and wrong, with help of HOLY SPIRIT and obey his every word that are written in the bible.
LEARN TO DRAW LINE:
Now we understand the word of God is, love your enemies, forgive them at the same time bible also teach us to be wise and have right discernment, Matthew 10:16 we see a warning sign to draw lines.
It only word of God that will give the wisdom to understand and that is where we need to ask God to give us, because lack of wisdom will lead to wrong discernment (James 1:5)
This will help you draw lines from the people who are trying to take advantage of you and your family or control you.
Bible clearly says Leviticus 25:17- Do not take advantage of each other, but fear your God. I am the LORD your God.
INCREASE YOUR PRAYER LIFE
Its only prayer that will keep you protecting from all problems like people taking advantage of you and other issues.
The increase of prayer time and which will bring change in you, bring good knowledge, better understanding, and right discernment.
All friends in business and corporates, spend time in prayer which also includes me too.
Every chains and power of darkness will be broken when we prayer regular, with honesty, with an intensity of spirit.
Ask HOLY SPIRIT to guide you, seek Jesus more and more, ask God to strengthen you.
I just want to conclude with saying enemy will try to somehow destroy the temple of God and works of God.We are the temple of God and God has planned a purpose for each other to build his kingdom.
Anything that will not glorify God’s name and not build his kingdom or anything that is between you and God, let us not encourage it and entertain.
We have to be alert, watchful and prayerful.
