Day of rest

i am starting to understand the spirit world. It is written we do not war against man but of spiritual principalities. This doesn’t make sense till you understand we are made Spiritually. What we think, affects us spiritually.
Have you ever been around someone and you just didn’t feel right? People call it negative energy. This is what i am talking about. i am learning that when a person is thinking negatively either about God, themselves, or others. They give off the spirit of what they are thinking about, bitterness, anger, pride….. weather we are aware of it or not we pick this up. This is what we war against. We think it is the people but it is rather their emotional state coming out in their actions. Most times their issues aren’t even with us. They’re unresolved issues with God, themselves, or others/us.
So i am learning that if i see everything as coming from God then i won’t look at the person and their behavior but rather look for what God is trying to show me.
Either about myself (heart) or the person(s) (heart).
Then comes the hard work. Because if it is our hearts God is showing us then we have to look at it. (humble ourselves, and ask forgiveness) If it is the others we have to show love in spite of their actions. This also tells us what to pray for the person. This is how we show Jesus to others.
Lately i have been around negative people. Mostly unforgiving people. The energy they gave off was draining me. i was taking it to God and asking Him what He wanted to tell me. Aside from the always standard “you have done the same” God was showing me that without Him i can not show love to such people. i have to rely on His Grace to give grace to them.
Yesterday was a breaking point to me. i was tired hungry, and taking on these people’s bitterness, and unforgiving spirit. Father forgive me for the unkind words i said.
When my roommate got home after work i had nothing left.
God in His infinite Wisdom knew that we as humans can only learn so much at a time. (God can accelerate this though) This is the reprieve thing i wrote about posts ago.
So my roommate was kind, loving and showed me God’s love for me. i sat there Thanking God that He did not ask me to keep giving what i did not have. Thank Him for His Kindness to me. i listen to my roommate share God’s wisdom of how we worship for our own benefit not to Praise God. (sometimes), another story don’t read into it)
i heard God say “there will be a time when you will be able to handle so much more. Jesus endured more and my Purpose is to transform you into Jesus”. (Jesus ALWAYS went to the Father for Peace/Grace)
So i now Thank God in the mist of the storm for it builds endurance and i Thank Him when it is over. i have learned to Thank Him in others negative behavior as well. For now i know it is not man we war against but of spirits and principalities. (Revelation of His Word)
satan gets us to look at ourselves/others God gets us to look at Him. See God at work in the interaction. What is God’s goal in the situation?
i would like to add that we can also give off positive energy. When we are happy, resting in God, calm, peaceful we share these with people also. This is how we show others that to Rest is God is not a struggle. This is how we are to represent God to others. It is Written “all that is true, honorable, pure, and lovely, admirable think on these things”
Here is Philippians 4:4-9
4. Always be full of Joy in the Lord. I say it again-rejoice! 5.Let Everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is Coming Soon. 6. Don’t worry about Anything; Instead, Pray about Everything. Tell God what you need, and Thank Him for All He has done.
7. (promise to what you just did) Then you Will Experience God’s Peace, WHICH EXCEEDS ANYTHING WE CAN UNDERSTAND. His Peace Will Guard your hearts and minds as you live IN CHRIST JESUS. 8. And now dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, pure, lovely and admirable. Think about things that are Excellent and Worthy of Praise. 9. Keep Putting into Practice All you learned and received from me- everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of Peace Will Be With you. (Paul wrote this WHILE IN PRISON what’s our excuse to not do the same?)
Father Isaiah 55:10-11 tells us Your Word NEVER RETURNS VOID. May Your word bear Fruit from this post. Be Glorified Father.
