Every Word Spoken Against Us!

Every Word Spoken Against Us!

“No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their righteousness is from Me,” Says the LORD. – Isaiah 54:17

We should condemn every word spoken against us. Every tongue which rises against us in judgment. Known and unknown.

The words we know about hurt, especially coming from those close to us. They are like knives thrown into our hearts. Their effects run deep. We play them on repeat in our minds, question our reaction to them, analyze them, add to them, and do many things before condemning them. 

Unknown words are more challenging. They bring heaviness to us unexpectedly. We feel burdened for no reason. We try to figure out what happened but end up empty. Our attitude shifts or our own words become sharp. We do not think of condemning unknown words, so their effects last longer. 

Dealing with the pain from every crushing word cannot be done without the help of the Spirit of God. Healing of the wound happens through forgiveness and healing. We yield to the conviction of the Holy Spirit for any wrongdoing on our part (known and unknown), stand on what the Word says about us, and walk free, from glory to glory!

Do not Compare!

Do not Compare!

For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.- 2 Cor. 10:12 

When we look at the achievements of others and compare it to ours, we can either be envious or encouraged. Envy brings frustration, depression and resentment. We are to rejoice with, and for, others. We can be encouraged because we have the same Heavenly Father and believe that He is no respecter of persons. Whatever He is doing in our lives is wonderful, more than we know!

Our success in the Lord is not based on what is seen, but on what is unseen: what He does in us and through us. Comparing ourselves with others is walking by sight and not by faith. We are to know others by the spirit, not by the flesh. Our love and compassion overrule fleshy emotions. Others do not define who we are. God does. 

When the temptation to envy others comes, we should thank God for what He is doing in their lives, pray for them and bless them. We also thank Him for our lives. Praise keeps our heart filled with joy and peace, and our focus on the Lord. When we lift Him up and when we lift up others, we are lifted up, from glory to glory!

He Who Waters Others is Watered

He Who Waters Others is Watered

The generous soul will be made rich, And he who waters will also be watered himself. – Prov. 11:25

My headache kept throbbing and I could barely keep my eyes open when I answered a call, and heard, “I’m not feeling well. Please, pray for me.” I felt led to pray for healing for that person and realized, after the call, that my headache was gone. In awe, I praised the Lord!

Sometimes the Spirit of God will lead us to water others, with a prayer or a word of exhortation, even when we need such things ourselves. His leading to minister to others is not based on how great we feel, but on how great He is. As we heed to His directions and obey, we pick up our cross, follow Him, and witness His mighty workings! 

There are also times when we do not see the fruit of our watering right away. Instead of yielding to discouragement, we must continue to pray and share the word, trusting God for the unseen growth. We might get weary repeatedly watering the same person or situation, but the Holy Spirit empowers us to press through, refreshing and refilling us. Let’s love and minister to others,  from glory to glory! 

Are You in a Dry Season?

Are You in a Dry Season?

Those who sow in tears Shall reap in joy. – Ps. 126:5

Even though he had been a believer of Jesus for many years and had experienced mighty moves of the Holy Spirit, Victor found himself in a dry season. His passion and fervor had disappeared. When worshipping in church or at home, he didn’t feel the Lord like he used to. His bible readings and prayer times had become automatic, like an exercise he just knew he had to do, stripped of all joyful expectations.

Like Victor, we might go through dry seasons, leading to despair and hopelessness. We can’t help but ponder if our behavior or lack thereof triggered their happening. Guilt and shame add to our anguish. The greatest anguish is the distance we feel from the Lord. The reality of spiritual warfare becomes solidified and when our efforts bear no fruit, we feel broken, and cry out to God!

At His feet, in total surrender, we can trust, no matter how long it takes, the watering of the Lord, by His Word and His Spirit. The presence of the Lord never leaves us, and we never leave it, even when we don’t feel it. Let’s press through our dry seasons until our breakthroughs, from glory to glory!

Reach for the Comfort of the Scriptures

Reach for the Comfort of the Scriptures

For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. Romans 15:4 (NKJV)

This day could not finish soon enough. It had been filled with frustrations leaving him feeling drained and defeated. So many little things had gone wrong. He went home heavy and could not get out of the state he was in until he reached for the comfort of the scriptures and read his favorite chapter, Romans 8. Like a mighty wave, the Word of God washed away his heaviness and the Spirit of God renewed his strength.

We can often be unaware of how much something has affected us until much later. Our moods shift. We do not act or speak with others as usual. The busyness of getting involved in our next duty prevents us from examining ourselves as we should. Having regular spiritual checkups helps us discern the dust on our feet and press through with our praise.

The comfort and guidance of the scriptures help us handle and manage the difficulties we come across. When we cannot get to our Bible, the Word we carry arises and empowers us to stand! One word from the Lord can turn a situation around instantly. The Lord equips us, edifies us and keeps us strong in Him, from glory to glory!

Break Free from Negative Vows

Break Free from Negative Vows

He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds. – Ps. 147:3

When Suzie’s boyfriend announced that their relationship had ended, her heart shattered into countless pieces. She dashed to her car, shut the door firmly, and proclaimed she would not trust anyone ever again. The vow she made to deal with her broken heart and protect herself from this pain happening again stayed with her for years. Distrust, fear and doubt caused every new relationship to fail. 

When the object of our trust disappoints us, we might make internal vows that can guide future decisions and hinder the best God has for us. We don’t always recognize these solemn promises we make over our lives. Some were spoken over our lives by others, and we received them as truths. Words are powerful and can battle our victorious walk, hindering what the Lord has placed in our hearts. Praise God for His victory!

Discovering the promises of God through His Word, and believing them, renews our mind. It helps us pray for the Lord to break free from all negative vows, known or unknown. The power of the Holy Spirit sets us free and restores hope. Our desires have changed. Emotional walls no longer block God’s best, and we walk in new divine opportunities, from glory to glory!
