I wonder why many Christians are not glowing but looking so sad? Many are ageing quickly!!! Abah Why?
One major reason is “spirit of discouragement”
Sometimes ago, an agape daughter called me on phone to apologize for an offense that was not really noticed or counted. So I probed further for explanations, and she did. It was all about the way she spoke and acted disrespectfully. I told her it was not even noticed (though such was wrong).
However, the lesson was the fact that it never affected me.
Why? I DID NOT NOTICE.
One of my sincere moment of peace in life has been when I “chose” not to notice offences, and of course, I got several trouble each time I “decide” to take note of offences.
So I added an eleventh law, “THOU SHALL NOT OBSERVE OFFENSES”.
Of course, it brings great wonders for retention of peace!
Friend, let’s learn from one another.
Don’t ever hold a human being responsible for what a spirit of discouragement is doing…
Spirit of discouragement can work through your closest friend, wife, sons, daughters, neighbor, father, mother, beneficiary, confidant, followers etc.
I mean someone you have so much sacrificed for, can suddenly turn against you, insult you, condemn you, even lied against you.
I know it can be hurting but BEWARE! It is a spirit of discouragement at work, and not the fellow.
I have learned to keep relationship with individuals where it should be, and still enjoy them. You cannot reach your goal by being distracted.
There are actually more to life than keeping offenses and becoming so heavy like Dangote tanker. 😄
The aim of the spirit of discouragement is to break you, pollute you with the spirit of vengeance and unforgiveness.
In the case of Jesus, he quickly asked the Father to forgive them before they “polluted” Him. Eni eleni 🤣 Luke 23:34
Ultimately, the target is for you to accept failure and pack your net. Will you? Do not be knocked down!
Just “ignore it” and enjoy your walk with the Holy Spirit!!!
You know what? Go deeper in fellowship with the Spirit. The deeper you go the fresher you become…
Please enjoy yourself as a Christian. Ps 16:11
