When He gives quietness, who then can make trouble?Job 34:29 Holy Bible New King James Version
I have a very contentious neighbor. He can go off like a rocket with little to no provocation by me. He is a constant thorn in my side. Indeed many times some very un-Christian words come out of my mouth during the conversation as he continuously pushes my buttons.
This problem was taken to the Lord and asked the proper manner in which to handle the situation without me exploding at him as he irritated me. The above verse jumped out at me during the next mornings Bible Verse as well as;
If people are causing divisions among you, give a first and second warning. After that, have nothing more to do with them. Titus 3:10 New Living Translation Bible
This makes perfect sense.
These types of folks are not interested in anyone’s opinion but their own and care not about anyone but themselves. Trying to talk things out with them is like talking with a wall. I do not waste my time talking with walls.
I do not even speak with him if he tries to talk with me, I keep silent and ignore him. It prevents a lot of trouble.
Now there is a lot more peace in my life.
If you refuse to be respectful enough to listen to others opinion then do not waste my time. Go talk with yourself. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Please Jehovah ‘Uzam (The Lord is our Strength in Trouble) bless me with peace, wisdom,grace and strength when encountering those who delight in causing grief to others. I sincerely request this in the name of who kept His peace when dealing with arrogant detractors and unfair accusers towards Him, Jesus Christ. Amen
Wishing you a house full of sunshine, hearts full of cheer and love that grows deeper each day of the year. Welsh blessing
