You do so at Your Own Risk.

                                    

He who turns his ear away from listening to the law [of God and man], Even his prayer is repulsive [to God]. Proverbs 28:9 Holy Bible Amplified Version

Have you ever felt Jehovah was speaking to you about something in your life and then you ignore Him?

You do so at your own risk.

When Jehovah speaks with us about something that requires attention it is for our own good.

If you ignore His advice you with eventually suffer the consequences for it. Then when you go cry babying unto Him, He will ignore your prayers. They smell like a bad fart to Him. He is disgusted with you because you refuse to listen to Him.

Now when you finally smarten up and obey Him, He forgives you.

It is always difficult to obey Him especially when it is something deep seated in our minds.

Many times it will take good Christian counselling to even get to admit we have the problem.

Once we accept the problem then it is up to us to try to resolve it. We can get all the counselling in the world but if we do nothing to try to resolve it, the counselling is useless.

Sometimes the problem is too big for us to handle.

That is when we go unto the Holy Spirit and sincerely, respectfully ask for His help. Then and only then will the issue be resolved.

I have gone through both sides of it and can tell you it is very difficult but rewarding.

One of them for example was independence, which most of us suffer from. It took many years before that was finally destroyed and expelled from my mind and heart. Sometimes it took my own effort, sometimes it took the assistance from the Holy Spirit. I rejoice over that every day.

“When God turns away from us because of selfishness, it is not rejection. Rather, it is an invitation to follow Him to a place we would rather not go.” — Brennan Manning

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emet (God of truth) for gracefully educating me about the ruinous dispositions with in my soul. Thank you for the assistance You overwhelmingly provide me with to conquer these weaknesses. I exalt Thee in the name of He who has overcome the world Jesus Christ. Amen

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Receive Them as He Received You

Therefore receive one another, just as Christ also received us, to the glory of God. Romans 15:7 New King James Version

GENTLE STREAM WINDING THROUGH FOREST

 

Jesus accepted me when I gave my life to Him warts and all. I was not perfect, if I was perfect I would not need Christ.
So when you have to be around someone who has a habit that is annoying to you like cracking their knuckles be tolerant of them. Perhaps there is a Christian that has a habit that is not becoming of a Christian.

Do not ostracize them.
We are all on the potters wheel until we get to Heaven.

That does not mean that you are to ignore it and let it slide.

Graciously bring it to their attention and try to help them overcome the weakness. Pray for them.

I have seen too many wolves in churches just looking for anything to condemn a brother or sister which ultimately drive them away from the church and indeed many times away from the Christian walk.

Meanwhile the wolves are the filthiest of them all. I yell you true, their very words are that which will condemn them into Hell.
He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first. John 8:7 New King James Version
Now if they willingly continue in their sinful habit and make no attempt to correct it or get help to correct it then they are to be removed from the church until they repent.  That means if somebody is committing sexual misconduct like pre-marriageable sex or
homosexuality and they refuse to repent they are to be refused to be a part of the church until they do repent, otherwise they will lead the weak astray.

If your brother or sistersins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over.  But if they will not every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’ If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the church; and if they refuse to listen even to Matthew 17 New International Version
Prayer: Please Jehovah Kal El (the voice of God) bless me to graciously guide those who are not walking in Your way back to the fold. Bless me to be tolerant of others little annoying habits knowing I am not perfect either. I humbly request this blessing in the name of He who taught us to be gentle but strong with all Jesus Christ. Amen.

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