Was It a Blessing?

In order that Satan might not outwit us, for we are not unaware of his schemes. 2 Corinthians 2:11 New International Version

HIS INSTRUCTION

 

One day I felt the Lord moving me to go sit beside the river on a cement walkway to do my meditation while living in Asia. Once there, men and women were constantly interrupting me trying to get me to give them or their children or grandchildren free English lessons. It was explained to them that I was spending time with Jehovah in meditation. They did not care and kept on
pestering me to teach them English. I naturally, became extremely agitated but remained meek (meek means keeping your temper under control.

Then I felt the Holy Spirit to merely explain to them I was meditating and would appreciate it if hey respected that and left me alone. When they persisted they were ignored. When they understood that they were being ignored they left me alone.

Why do you think Jehovah would send me to a place where there was constant harassment?
Do you think it was to teach me to be polite but firm with others?  Do you think it was to teach me to concentrate on meditation and not allow the devil to interfere with it (I am not saying the men and women were devils but rather that Satan was using them to interfere with it)?

Do you think that was a blessing in disguise?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God our teacher) for blessing me with an important lesson that is expanded so much in my life. I joyously exalt You in the name of He who never allowed the devil to interfere with His divine life when He walked the earth Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.
