But Moses told the people, “Do not be afraid. Just stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. The Lord himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.” Exodus 14:13-14 The Holy Bible , The New Living Translation
I have had the Lord tell me this three times in less than a year involving abusive relationships.
The first one He blessed me with insight on how to deal with abusive neighbors. When a confrontation occurred I found my actions and words to be taken over by the Lord. They were powerful and true. Needless to say , the neighbour has not come for round two.
The second one was about an abusive relative. The Lord informed me to just stay away from him. Through the grapevine I have learned what he was doing to me is being done three times worse to him. Now , he is so busy with his problems he does not have time to scam me.
The third also involved an abusive relative that I am a live in care giver for. The Lord has informed me to step back and allow Him to deal with it. Her health has taken a nose dive and the pain she has caused me , the Lord has brought down upon her head and it is not nice but justifiable. I have learned that many of the things I was doing I do not have to do. Now , when she wants things done around here I just firmly but politely inform her that she gives money to the others while they do nothing and given me nothing while I do all the work. Those days are over. If she wants something done down here get them to do it. If they refuse or she does not want them to do it , then she has to pay me the equivalent of what she paid them to do anything around here ( which was very generous ) She recently did that and they were all furious they actually had to come down here and help out. I know my care giving duties and refuse to do anything extra unless she put the money in the hand first. If she can afford to give them money for doing nothing , then she can afford to give me money for the work done.
One of the most abused but silent parts of society are relatives that are care givers. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You ) that You have stood by my side when dealing with difficult folks that I was at my wits end on how to end their horrible abuse. You not only silenced them but also slammed down Your Divine punishment upon them. I exalt You in the name of the Supreme Judge who shall reward us all for that which we have done here on earth , Jesus Christ. Amen
May the Lord bless you with His victory in whatever insurmountable battle you are enduring right now. Joseph a son of Jehovah
