The days are quickening with evil, and callousness is present more than ever. Still, Christ’s people are vividly different, yet to be Christ-like in a world filled with judgement and contempt there is a process of renewal.
A challenging excursion into the wilderness to be strengthened in the Spirit and becoming your best you. Through the hardships of isolation and testing, we study Christ and gradually learn how to respond to poor behavior with etiquette and dignity. By taking time away to pray. The adherence to obedience comes with significant changes.
In homes of families where children are raised without Christ’s teachings, abused, and reared in violence, they learn early on to respond quickly, and void of the tools needed to excessive self control will experience many broken relationships.
The Bible says that a fool reacts quickly, but a wise man is patient, so it is through Jesus Christ, we learn to love and slow down.
It’s the process of refinement that teaches us how to walk in Christ’s character, and although godly and sincere, we stay unique to who we are as individuals. There is an art form to walking in our God-given mantles and it takes time.
Through Christ, we learn how to trust again, for some even for the first time, and with trust in a Father comes confidence in character. Jesus instills in us the proper temperament and speech from healing the heart
We learn over time that the most important thing we can do is respect ourselves. Thus, we learn to respect others, including people who don’t deserve respect.
Self-control is a learned behavior that only comes with the fruit of the Holy Spirit and the reason why some who belong to the Lord must endure a longer wilderness experience. It takes time to Spiritually reawakening, and be restored of what the enemy had taken, while redemption waits in the wings for the char auto match the calling.
Your Father knows that some of you have been so poor treated in life that pain is engrained in every fiber of your being and only God knows you well enough to know that you are an extraordinary case and deserving of the time and patience it takes to love you properly and heal your wounds.
The truth is you will be the one who shows the world the power of Christ when He is done repairing you and, most importantly, Siphons the be in of hatred that many people drove into your bones. The Lord will use you to vividly detail the cost of the cross and the power of God to heal and transform.
The process is lengthy, and many don’t understand what is happening to them, but when the time comes, they will finally learn to appreciate you for your unique beauty and the love you share with everyone. People won’t only tolerate you but have genuine love, for you and deeply.
It’s impossible to have mercy on others if we don’t show love and compassion to ourselves first, and the misuse of old pain causes strife in the body so let it begin with Christ and end with your commitment to excellence.
The Bible says, “for judgment is without mercy to one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.”—James 2:13
Therefore blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. Indeed we rebuke evil, yet we side with love in praying for our enemies; harsh words promote contempt.
In Proverbs 21:23, we read, “Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps himself out of trouble.
Indeed as humans, we become angered by ignorance, the righteous indignation from indignant people but through Christ, we are more than a Conquer and able to teach through example..
Stop, think, pray, answer.
It’s acceptable entirely to warn in love to pray and repent and to rebuke evil when Satan attempts to lay witchcraft at your door.
The Bible says, “that good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense.”—Proverbs 19:11
The sooner we keep our tongues in check, the greater the works of Christ we will see on earth.
2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
“Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness!
Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe!
Praise him with sounding cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals!”—Psalm 150:1-6
Praise Him with your heart, and honor Him with your mouth.
