Good morning Sweetness! Let’s dive right in this morn, shall we?
‘When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.’ (Galatians 5:19-21 NLT)
Attitude is a choice. Anger is a choice… have you ever dealt with someone and had the thought, ‘that is one angry little man’? Because we run into those types in daily living, don’t we?
Recognize the work of the enemy when faced with hostile, negative attitudes-recognize that sometimes it is important to be kind, but Beloved, there are times when our being sweet only makes the enemy smile in victory. You were not given the Spirit to be run over.
When the soulful life is being threatened, it is not only acceptable to draw the line and mean it, it is required! Grasp deeply and recover what you know to be true. You and I must remember that when threatened by forces of evil, we have an opposing Force who has a long, brutal history with the enemy. That Force is alive and active and stands ready for your call, diving over whatever walls, fences, buildings, barriers the enemy tries to build. And, the Force of Father God through you will push the enemy right back where he belongs.
Sometimes, we are called to cut ties with those the enemy uses to get to us. In cold blood, walk away. Listen to the Holy Spirit. He will call you to the right thing to do.
