IS HOSTILITY WITH GOD!
I was driving, when I heard this scripture, in a small still voice, I couldn’t mistake it for anything else. This voice was authorative, but fatherly, with gentleness, and stillness in the atmosphere.
“But Lord, I don’t party or drink, or hang out at the bars, I don’t do these things anymore!
But you gossip about others, and listen to slander, you’re on the fence, lukewarm, in the middle.
HE WAS RIGHT!
I couldn’t really deny it, I occasionally did these things, I don’t party, or drink like I used to, yet I am still guilty!
Then I saw a glance, a vision of me holding a cup; a red cup, there was poison in it, and I was helping my friend drink it.
I was the participant, by standing idly by. Not saying anything makes me more guilty, because silence is approval, silence is a silent yes.
When my friend was slandering, I should have been speaking against it, instead of just listening, I should have told her to stop. She doesn’t know any better, but I do. I cannot continue to listen to her poison, and expect it not to affect me. It will also affect me, before I realize it, and I have to be careful.
You’re right Lord, I need HELP, help me to reject this poison, help me to know the difference. Teach me!
SO HE DID !
This was the beginning of my TRANSFORMATION, but was I ready, for all that the Lord had in store for me?!
STAY TUNED TO FIND OUT!
