DAY 3- WILL YOU TAKE A LOVE WALK WITH ME? Matthew 5:44 “Bless those who curse you, and pray for those who persecute you” Now wait a minute! This is challenging!! Yes it is!! Because we say, “I going to pray for you!!” but we do it with an attitude! The first part says to BLESS them, now that’s not just saying, ” GOD Bless you!” its saying bless your enemies….Come on sow a seed, do a favor, buy a gift, etc. ahhhh what is the attitude behind it?
Psalms tells us, if we regard inequity in our hearts, our prayers will not be heard. Saying things like oh the Lord will take care of them! Baby bless them and keep moving!!! STOP! THAT IS THE SPIRIT OF WRATH AT WORK! YOUR PAYER SHOULD BE ONE OF MERCY!!! LORD HAVE MERCY ON THIS PERSON and then not only pray for them, pray for you! That you truly forgive and let it go!
Sometimes the more un-lovable a person is, the more LOVE they really need. My ex supervisor, LORD she gave me the BLUESSSSSS!! I wanted to quit!!! I would even drive around at lunch time crying and praying that is how rude and ugly she was!!! Honey I oiled her desk, chair, computer, office door! Everything! Then one day I purchased a gospel cd, and wrote a nice letter and left it in her office with no name on it. Of course she knew it was me, I was told my music was too much, all that Jesus talk had to go, etc. She asked everyone in the office if they knew who sent it, except me. Of course I did not tell anyone about it. But she called me one day and said, “I know you’ve been praying for me, thank you, please continue to pray for me”.
DAY 3- BLESS THOSE WHO CURSE YOU AND PRAY FOR THOSE WHO PERSECUTE YOU!
