Thou Shalt have no other Gods before me
Place no one before Me
Being more concerned about another rather than serving Jesus
No discipline seems pleasant … Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness …
Hebrews 12:11 New Living Translation
Sometimes we are very stiff necked (stubborn) and that is when Jehovah must take strong measures t get us in tune with His will. It is unpleasant and occasionally downright exceedingly horrid. After the stubbornness is burned off us however we are enormously grateful to God for performing what to Him must have been excruciatingly painful as well. For me it was being a servant to another instead of being a servant to Jesus. Someone I was close to was very domineering in my life. I thought that serving this person was a way to serve Christ. He allowed a demon to enter into this person and it tormented me at every opportunity. From being yelled and screamed at from the time I got up to the time I went to bed. From humiliating me in public at every opportunity. From saying mean, hateful, spiteful thing that was like thrusting a dagger straight though my heart. To setting me up in situations where they tried to get other people to gang up on me and beat me. I was the most painful and dreadful experience in my life. To this day, nothing tops it and I have lived a very difficult life. Finally I left the abusive relationship. Then came the immense agony of recovering from that nightmarish experience. It took a year of good Christian therapy to heal from those wounds. I am happy to be free to serve Jesus now that those chains have been smashed free of me. Now, I use this hellish experience to help others break free from their abusive monsters and understand that they are not being bad husbands or wives, children or parents or friends to break free from these monsters. But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:31, New International Version Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yahew (God of His people) for smashing me and making me new so that I may have a deeper relationship with You.. In the name of the most creative potter Jesus Christ we pray. Amen. May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ love bless you today and every day
