We are tempted to think that the more powerful we become, the better we will battle sin. But the exact opposite is true. The more power, influence, or prestige we possess, the more temptable we are. The strength of sin feeds on our sense of strength. This is why we are warned that “pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall” (Proverbs 16:18). In weakness, we feel our need for God, but when we are strong, we lack that saving sobriety. We lost the need of God and mostly in strength we tend to think THINGS ARE UNDER CONTROL..but it is not so. THEREFORE learning to surrender towards God is needed the most…then we will know how to respect a sovereign power over us. An authority to lead us and not to control us. -wisdom
We mostly get tired of people whom are victims of abuse. And in our terms, our wish is that they would be set free. We do our best to take them out if it. Yet often we see then returning.
Of course we get distracted and disappointed because we dont understand what is happening in their minds. We think sometimes that our efforts were neglected and that our relationship with them somehow starts to be out of hand. Until the day, we want to give up forgetting that once we had the days when we also were victims.
We must understand it is a difficult situation for that person and it is a personal attachment. The only thing u can do is to allow the person see the wrong thing in the event. Although you have given your advice it is still very difficult for the person to be influenced by your thoughts because the person itself face the fear and has very low self esteem. You must remember that the abuser had stolen their identity and trampled their lives. In that manner the abuser was using its power to make use of the victims positive mind from the beginning. I believe that the abuser itself is a broken soul and it feeds to break another to feel a little better. To damp the brokenness inside. we must never forget to understand those who are in weak situations and we shall not look down on them i was once a victim and it took me so long before i got out if it. I was looked down by people who think that i get returning back to the abuser but the thing is, i wasn’t strong enough because the people that tried to pull me out of it are the ones who speaks about mistakes. Points out how i shall be and how i should think. It created confusion in me because I didnt know what to think for myself and the hopelessness grew… One day there was a person who found my strength by suggesting ne solutions and that friend never imposed aby ideas but stayed with me and told me. “You are strong enough” “do you think this things happening to you arecorrect?” “i will always listen to you sentiments until you get free from it because I am hoping you soon be free”
These were always her words whenever she got tired of my repetitive conversation. Until the day i stood for victory.
The idea of hurting others indeed comes from the inner source of the soul in hebrew called ‘jetser hara’ – long for evil. It is in the inner part of the soul connecting from the sinful nature of man. Yet the idea of doing good is the longing for good – jetser ha tov in hebrew.
These has been implanted in our soul therefore many of us either become aware of being abused or not aware of abusive behaviour.
Each of us.. No one can deny that even though we are born again has sometimes the attitude of abuse. Which in term of Paul, we can always discipline ourselves to not obey the jetser hara.
Please have kindness at heart and an understanding attitude towards the person you are facibg difficulties. We might not know what we say might lift then up or might bring them down. ❤️😘 I speak according to my experience.
Yeshua always look upon the broken hearted and has a contrite spirit. A broken soul is the one who needs guidance and has a restless mind. A contrite spirit has the sleepless thoughts and worries, an anxiety of the heart caused by other people who are abusing them and using them for their own benefits.
Yeshua had cared for these people and showed meekness and kindness to them. He was not exempted even to the humiliating events that we also experience in life. That is why He said,
I amthe bread of life.Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believesin me will never be thirsty
Take it as an example.
Until then if the person want to stay where they are.. Then thats their matter.. We cant do nothing.. But to respect the decision.
It’s amazing how God works in every people’s life. As we are out and living the life of being a Disciple of Jesus., we experience the life in the word. The more we go out, the more life hear and see who Jesus is. The more people become open to what and how should we be as Followers of Jesus.. I believe in every word of the bible. From the beginning to the end. And this our daily testimony. As the modern Acts.
Yesterday, I spoke to my friend over the phone to Philippines. I called from Sweden. Her son has been sick with fever and scabbish. And the scabbish had small sores over the body. The skin was swollen according to her. And the child has headache. And he was just lying in bed. The boy had been sick for almost a month. He Had been treated with medicines for a month and still nothing changed but yesterday..there was no medicine. By some circumstances she couldn’t buy medicines.
So when I called! I instructed my friend to lay hands over her son, And we commanded the scabbish to go in the name of Jesus. And I commanded cleansing upon him and his whole body. Suddenly, under the proclamation of freedom from sickness..the stomach of the child is in deep pain. He had the sudden stomach pain twice. So I commanded the spirit of sickness to leave in Jesus name and the child felt something coming up from the stomach up to his chest going up to the throat and when it left him, he was sweating heavily, and the sweat was hot drops. The healing took about 30 minutes I suppose.
Today is the 2nd of March 2016. I called my friend again and she said she suppose to wash her son with a medical soap but noticed that the skin were normal and all the sores were dried up. Even her neighbours were amazed at what had happened. She proclaimed that Jesus indeed had healed her son. The neighbours were amazed and wondering how it had happen, the child is playing and normal again. All praises to God and Jesus is to be magnified for the power of the Holy Spirit is revealed in this works.
I believe that the power of the Holy Spirit has no limit, it has no distance. A word is enough and powerful. The faith is rising up. The Kingdom of God has come near every people’s lives.
