Treat Them Like a Cat.

trust in God

 

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

Before It Hated You.

HARRASED

If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. John 15:18-20New King James Version

Read the New Testament

When we read in the New Testament the terrible way the people treated Jesus when He walked amongst us why are we surprised that we are treated the same way?.

When we are the Kings servants why should we be surprised when the same thing happens to the servants as happed to our King?

He was rejected and ridiculed by His family.

He was thrown out of places of worship.

He was laughed at.

How many times was He told to leave town?

He was called insane. The wonderful thing is that when these happen to you (and they will) you can always take it to Jesus because He knows exactly how you feel and He will strengthen you and comfort you.

He has me.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) that I can always come to you when feeling beaten, rejected and abused because of my relationship with my beloved King because You have already walked that path so You understand and will comfort and heal and strengthen me on my difficult path to Your home You have prepared for Your obedient servant Heaven. I thank you in Your loving name. Amen.

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