LET NO CURSE FROM THE PAST ALIGN ITSELF ON YOU!
Through a set of circumstances God is showing me that many darts from the past are trying to make their target into your soul to set you back! The enemy knows who you are and he knows what God is trying to accomplish in you. The enemy is vigorously trying to set you back and cause your mind to spin on thoughts of the past. Things you have been delivered of, are trying to resurface. The enemy knows even how you were labeled as a child and would like to convince you that mistakes that you made or ways that you may have been falsely labeled is who you actually are. Be cautious not to allow the arrows to settle into your soul! There are many more plans of God for you!
I’m reminded of my mother-in-law, Pam’s favorite scripture. I believe that most of the Pierce family has been meditating on this passage for some time.
See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, for the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is. Ephesians 5:17-18.
Many of us get caught off guard when a tragic situation happens and we don’t always respond the way that we really wanted to. Some of us are better with always having the right word or reaction in a hard situation.
Scriptures that God is highlighting to me for all of us to meditate on:
- A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. Proverbs 15:1
- Whoever guards his mouth and tongue Keeps his soul from troubles. Proverbs 21:23
- This you know, my beloved brethren But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger; for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God. James 1:19-20
Lets all pray that we will be armed with a soft answer. Lets pray that by the grace of God we will guard our mouths and tongues. Let us press into the Holy Spirit that we will be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger. We are all walking in way of the Lord and working out our salvation with fear and trembling.
Even in the midst of chaos the time will be redeemed!
