In this season of Love, I heard the Lord say “It’s time for a heart check!”
“What are we to look for?” I asked.
This is what He replied:
1. OFFENSE: where there is Offense, you will also find Bitterness.
2. BITTERNESS: where there is Bitterness, you will also find UnForgiveness
3.UNFORGIVENESS: where there is unforgiveness, you will also find Hurt
4. HURT: Where there is Hurt you will also find REJECTION
5. REJECTION: where there is Rejection you will also find Offense.
“Do you notice the vicious cycle?”, He asked. Then He added:
“This month, seek to break free from this vicious cycle by REPENTING of the sins associated with offense and unForgiveness. LET IT GO! LET THEM GO so that your own sins can be forgiven (Matthew 6:14). Allow LOVE to come into your heart and set YOU free.”
Know your IDENTITY in Christ according to what GOD says in His word concerning you. Meditate on His promises to renew your mind and change your mindset.
From 1 Corinthians 13:
Love suffers long
Love is kind
Love does not envy
Love does not parade itself
Love is not puffed up
Love does not behave rudely
Love does not seek its own
Love is not provoked
Love thinks no evil
Love does not rejoice in iniquity
Love rejoices in the truth
Love bears all things
Love believes all things
Love hopes all things
Love endures all things
Love never fails
13:13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is LOVE.
LOVE EXCESSIVELY for it is how God loves you. Offense and UnForgiveness are baits to ensnare you into a downward spiral that will stunt your spiritual growth and cause your strength to fail. Let Love edify you (1 Cor 8:1) as you wait upon Him this month (Isaiah 40:31)
Psalm 33:22 (NLT) “Let Your unfailing love surround us, LORD, for our hope is in You alone.”
