Treat Them Like a Cat.

A whip for the horse, a bridle for the donkey, and a rod for the backs of fools! Proverbs 26:3 New International Version

 

We have a cat that used to love to wait until we went to bed and then meow all night.

I read were if you ignore them they will stop. They are just trying to get attention. I tried it with limited success.

One night she kept us up until three a.m.

That was the last straw.

That day I put her in her cat carrier. Every time she meowed I would gently slap her on her and say “NO MEOWING!!” It took her forty five minutes to learn that meowing is rewarded with punishment and she stopped. Needless to say she did not like that at all. Now every night that she begins to meow alls I have to say is NO MEOWING! once and she stops and does not do it anymore during the night.

So too it is with instigators.

We can just ignore them and sometimes they will grow bored because they do not have a victim to torment but there are times when we have to be graceful, wise and firm with them and give them the same treatment as the cat. We cannot physically swat them but with Jehovahs guidance our words sting much worse.

I now use this to great effect and it has prevented many useless arguments and stings from the sick ones that love to start fights to satisfy their perverted pleasure. They quickly learn to avoid me and look for other victims.

That does not mean they will not wait until they think your guard is down and then try to attack again.

Let them try and they will fail.

You know why?

Because they are not dealing with flesh and blood (you), they are battling Spirit (The Holy Spirit) and who do you think is going to win that battle?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for blessing me with the wisdom, grace and meekness to use words as a weapon to defend myself against the fools who arrogantly think they are so smart and love to cause disputes to satisfy their perverted pleasure. I thank you in the name of He who put the Pharisees in their place Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

As Christ is our King, so too are we His free will servants Joseph a son of Jehovah I have been a faithful servant of our Lord for the past forty years. He has led me to move from the farm to the city. It was there I learned natural medicine as well as to serve by doin volunteer work in a hospital. This was preparing me for the next stage of growth and service unto Him. The next phase was to live in a tent in the western provinces of Canada planting trees. It has here in His marvelous creation of nature that He taught me so much of Himself while serving others in camp as a first aid attendant. If anybody got sick or injured they always came to me. As well, I learned to be a big brother and care about their mental health and for most, it was the first time they were ever loved. This caring for others prepared me for the next step which was to be a teacher all over China. Here not only did my example guide many to our Heavenly King but also taught me how to deal with narcissist. This prepared me to come home to take care of a narcissistic mother while dealing with narcissist family members. It was in China that the Lord also guided me to become a Christian writer which has been faithfully done for the past ten years. I know not what will happen tomorrow but I know who holds tomorrow in His hands and it is Him I place my total confidence and trust in. Joseph a son of Jehovah
