Hello to my Throne Room Brothers and Sisters! This is a BIG topic that has come up A LOT in many Christian circles and steadily online as well. Let’s dig right in and see what Holy Spirit has for us today on this.
Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels. And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. (2 Timothy 2:23-24)
Sometimes we need to be reminded of this truth don’t we? I know we can all get stirred up, but we need to make sure that we are honest with ourselves, each other and most of all before God.
I mean just because we may “feel” angry does not mean it’s Holy Spirit righteous anger. Just because we may “feel” upset does not mean it’s the Holy Spirit that is grieved. In fact, the scripture above says, “don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments. I realize even in that, people will ironically argue over what is deemed a foolish argument to find a reason to say it’s OK to argue! LOL.
Nevertheless, for the purpose of this specific post and what I believe God has put on my heart to share is I want to encourage us to remember the FRUIT of the HOLY SPIRIT and the FLESH that OPPOSES the things of the HOLY SPIRIT!
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law (Galatians 5:22-23).
For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do.(Galatians 5:17).
God is well able to handle WAY MORE then we can even comprehend. He DIED for us when we were in REBELLION against Him. That RIGHT THERE is MORE then ENOUGH to HUMBLE US, reveal to us AND remind us of the GOODNESS and GRACIOUSNESS of GOD.
PRAYER: Father God, we thank You for Your amazing love and grace. Lord help us to stay humble and remember and receive true revelation of Who You are and who we are in You. Help us to walk in it and take responsibility for ourselves with You, that You may have Your way in us and through.
Lord, may we be slow to anger and abounding in His love, may we be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave us (Eph 4:32). May we be KEENLY AWARE of the CONTINUOUS abundant grace and mercy that we ourselves are receiving from You Father and therefore, that we in turn give that to one another. May we Freely receive from you ALL that you want us too so that we may then freely give as You taught Your disciples Lord (Math 10:8).
May we LOOK AT OUR OWN FRUIT, to test it and see is this from the HOLY SPIRIT. May we realize that IF we are called to be used BY GOD in CORRECTION that it is to be done in love, meekness and gentleness BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD (SEE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT Gal 5:17 AND GALATIANS 6:1). May ONLY Your good and perfect pleasing will come forth in us, through us and in our lives by the power of Your Holy Spirit and to the glory of Your Kingdom and Your name in Jesus Name amen and amen.
