Today’s Inspiration: “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.” Matthew 7:12.
Martin Luther once spoke that a Christian is one who lives outside of himself. A life of giving is a life of loving. The world would want you to take more for yourself but the kingdom would desire to give more of yourself like Christ Jesus our Lord and Saviour.
In the healing ministry, I have seen many hurting people and they do hurt people because of their reactions to past accusations, afflictions, and abuses. Such hurts had allowed satan to plant lies in their hearts and believe system that they are unloved, unwanted, and unaccepted. Ephesians 4:27. Such lies creates self protection out of fear, allowing the spirit of narcissism to operated in selfishness, self-pity and insecurities. By God’s divine grace when such roots were exposed and uprooted in repentance and reconciliation to God, Christ turned their hurts to scars, pain to purpose, and rejections to acceptance. No one is born to hurt or hate one another but in God’s plan is to love one and forgive one another, healing our reactions to the past and freeing us to respond to our future in love, faith and hope. Praise God!
Prayer: O Lord my God, heal me and I will be healed, save me and I will be saved. Reveal in your light my reactions and my heart, that I may walk in your path of agape love, to love one another like Christ. May I be lesser, and you be greater, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
