Why do you hate them?

I am doing prayer in the mornings with a group and this morning we were praying for families and single parents. We were also praying for UNITY in the families, re-aligning families back to the way God had ordained them to be. The devil knows that if he breaks up the family unit he can scatter everyone so that UNITY can’t happen.

During prayer this morning, God shared this with me so I wanted to add it to the blog to share with you today!

There are some families that the members don’t talk, there is hate, discord and fighting. This is NOT how God wants families to function. This is NOT what He ordained for families and I have to believe that He is not pleased when there is discord, fighting, arguing and negative talk about each other within the family.

It’s so important that we see the destruction this causes in the body of Christ. You may not think this isn’t a big deal, but it is. Especially now that I’m bringing it to your attention. Now that you know the truth and know that God is not pleased with it, you are accountable to it. Scripture says that if we won’t forgive our brothers then God won’t forgive us. This applies to your family members to, you know. If you can only speak ill will about your family members…you are wounded. There is a wound there that needs to be healed. Even your sarcastic comments count. Your not speaking life or love. Your wounded. When you are offended by them, you are wounded. When you think that its ALL them and you have no part in the discord…that shows no humility on your part. Sometimes you have to say sorry to a person or a situation even when you don’t feel you are wrong. Let God use you in that situation to bring peace

But over time…we have been wounded by each other and family members. Those wounds then caused hate, bitterness, rejection, fear, unforgiveness, offense, etc. Now these open wounds need to be healed so that YOU can heal. So that you can move forward and not pass it down to the next generation. Wounds can be healed, arguments can come to peace and you can live better together with family. Let me say that I know there are some situations where the other person is unwilling to forgive and reconcile, those situations you can’t change; but you do your part. Be forgiving, love and move on. That’s when you LET GO AND LET GOD. Give them to God, pray for them. But don’t pray out of your anger and frustration. Let God deal with your heart first, so you can pray out of a clean place and with pure motive. Declare today….I CHOOSE TO FORGIVE! Even if you feel you have forgiven and your good. Still declare it…there could be some hidden places that you can’t see or have forgotten about.

Lastly, know that some of your family situations will change but some of them may not. That is ok. You just make sure your in a right place with God. Receive the change that God is going to make in your family situations. Pray for your family today…matter of fact, set aside some time to pray for your family….and maybe invite members of your family to pray with you.

YOU have purpose….yes YOU!

What is purpose?  It’s been a trending word for awhile now.  Purpose means…the reason for which something was created or exists.

Don’t let anyone tell you or make you feel as if you don’t have purpose!  You were created, right?  You are here, right?  Then you have purpose!

Some people walk this earth their whole life not fully knowing or understanding who they are or what they are supposed to do.  Some of us are freestyling life with some routine moments to keep order.  But we’re not satisfied.  You know there is something else for you.

Yes, some of us can make things work better than others or have the ability to make things look easy, but that does not mean you don’t have a place in this world too.  Find out what your purpose is…that is your assignment while your here on this earth.  Who did God create you to be?  What did He create you to do?  Your purpose is from God, so if you want to know it…you have to seek Him to find it.  

And if you know the answer, how are you using it to glorify Him?  Are you pointing people to Jesus in your purpose?  If your not, then it’s not God’s purpose…it’s become your purpose.

Jeremiah 29:11 tells us that God has plans for YOU. Which means he set aside somethings just for you. It’s coming!

But I must ask, what are you doing until then?  When we don’t know how to get somewhere, some of us WILL ask for directions. But some of us won’t. Some of us will get the directions but still try to find it on our own. But some of us still won’t ask. Some of us give up when it starts looking to difficult. Some of us never try.  Some of us become spectators and watch everyone else, never stepping out to walk in our own assignment.  What’s holding you back?  Think about it for a moment.  What are you afraid of?  It’s OK to admit that.  Say it out loud so you can confront it, deal with it, overcome it and move on.  You won’t be satisfied, completely satisfied until you are doing what God called you to do.

Jeremiah 29:13 says, And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.  You have a part in this…you have to do the work to find your purpose.  But I can guarantee you,  God will send you your help, people who can give you sound spiritual advice, someone you can talk to, give you clarity and opportunities to walk in your purpose. 

But you have to want to know God’s plan for your life, you have to be willing to put in the work, allow God to make the necessary changes in you, clean you up, fix you, renew your mind.  You can’t walk into your purpose…messy and unprepared.  See, that’s where many of us stop the process.  We don’t want to confront our mess.  But it’s a necessary part of the process.  

If your ready, leave a comment.  Say it out loud so you can be accountable to it.

No more hiding.  Your purpose is waiting for you!
