http://bible.com/8/psa.34.13-17.amp Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit. Depart from evil and do good; seek, inquire for, and crave peace and pursue (go after) it! The eyes of the Lord are toward the [uncompromisingly] righteous and His ears are open to their cry. The face of the Lord is against those who do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. [I Pet. 3:10-12.] When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their distress and troubles.
Due to the human in us, most will describe themselves as a specimen under a microscope. At least that’s the way we all feel one time or another, being watched for every movement rather it he bad or good. The view in another life should not be to bring judgement because they don’t act, do or eat the same as we do, but whatever is being done, be done to glorify the FATHER in Heaven.
We spend so much time looking at another when we forget, good or bad we have to give and account to God of our own actions.
Romans 14:11-12(NKJV) says
For it is written: “ As I live,
says the Lord , Every knee shall bow to Me, And every tongue shall confess to God.” So then each of us shall give account of himself to God.
With this reminder of scripture, let us not be so involved in someone else’s life good or bad until we forgot that we have to give account to GOD for our own actions. Let our actions be to glorify GOD, show good representation of the ONE Who gave HIs Only begotten son that we may come into relationship with HIM….
Although we are accountable to one another, we should take a moment to give ourselves a survey after each encounter. Did we really encourage that person the way it will Honor GOD or did I put me in it to be proud of me? Did I really tell the godly truth or let them get by doing it their own way?
Asking ourselves these sort of questions help us to stay in the path of righteous thinking. So if we truly are our brother’s keep we will first keep ourselves in the righteousness of God’s way of living and thinking. Love does not seek its own way, yet it love when truth rings out. We are uniquely designed by GOD and our uniqueness can be another’s help without changing into us but allowing the GOD created them to shine forth for the world to see that GOD is in us and we are more than happy to be a part of HIS plan for our live.
It’s amazing how we live life to learn, yet there are times when the lesson to life doesn’t kick in until years later. You know you didn’t go through a test or trial for nothing yet somehow the lesson is not clear until days, month even years later. Well, I started a journey which was very hard for me to see the message in lesson. I knew it was something important however I was in a state of calamity, I felt as though my life was drench with so much pain until I thought pain was the way for me to live. Sounds crazy huh, but it’s not. If you grew up in painful surrounding and was not taught that you can have a painless life as you are growing up you will marry pain, you will accept pain and you will think pain is all that your life is suppose to endure. You will even sabotage your happiness thinking life is supposed to be painful.
Don’t get me wrong we all will experience pain, but to settle for pain would not be good for your heart, mind nor spirit. Some of the most painful experiences come from friends, family members and people we look up to; however we have a choice to stay in pain or be free of the pain. There will always be someone in our lives that will make us feel bad about who we are and who we belong to, they will speak harsh words and make you feel guilty of anything that comes to there mind concerning you, they are called the accuser of our brethren (Rev.12:10).
The time has come for us to rise above the pain and stop sabotaging our lives but live the life GOD has design for us to live. It’s time to politely say to those who have caused you pain, “I am GOD’s creation, if you have a problem with who I am and who I have become, talk to my FATHER who loves me no matter what you say and how you feel about me. I am no longer sabotaging any happiness that my FATHER has and is sending my way.”
I am learning people blame you for things that you are going through when there are the one to blame for their own situations. Mothers, Fathers lift your head up high, what your children do is not always your fault. If you have done your best then you have done what was required of you. Sisters and Brothers, you can’t carry the burden of a sibling that don’t want to give up the burden themselves, live your life according to the Will of GOD. Children, honor your parents, love them, and keep in mind you were created to bring GOD glory. Friends loves unconditional, allow GOD to show how to love a friend and be an example to those who are place in your path. There will be times when you are misunderstood, remember, we all are unique and treasure by our Heavenly FATHER.
One more reminder: John 8:36 “Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.
Do you know must of the time people will remember a fall of a person than the good of them. Listen to how they describe a person; it’s the most shame or embarrassing moment of a person’s life. The Word of GOD says, the Love covers a multitude of sins (1 Peter 4:8), however, sadly to say this is mostly remembered when the embarrassment and shame light is us rather than others. We seeing that we need to should have been covered, but don’t you thank that the grace that we desire to be on our behalf should be shown on others? Are we not a family that prays for one another? Is it that hard to cover and protect them fall ones from our hurtful words, thoughts, and judgments? The Word GOD says, Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one. Colossians 4:6 (KJV) Although what is said maybe true, it’s up to those who are in love with CHRIST and have experience HIS awesome love look to HIM for the rightly season words to speak in the life of the person has fallen so by GOD’s Spirit they may be restored….
Be Encourage today and use what you have to help a fallen brother or sister. Keep them in remembrance that GOD is LOVE!
