A Common Form of Abuse that Is Ignored
Yesterday I received a text from my recruiter. She stated that the facility that I am currently working for wanted to extend my contract. Concurrently, they wanted to decrease my pay prior to finishing the remaining agreement.
The first mistake. Not inquiring of the LORD. I am working on this. Feeling compelled to answer, I let her know that I would consider it. In response, she stated that she would send me details the following Monday.
I kept pondering the situation. Specifically praying that if this happened, I would do that, or if that happened, I would do this. Either way I decided that it was of God, or of the devil.
I asked the LORD to let me consider it. Consequently, being against this in the past. This same scenario has happened to other travelers. Yet, I did not fully understand why I was so bothered.
Respond Accordingly to the Truth
The LORD was wrestling with me in the spirit. He spoke to me. He impressed upon me that I had no need to foolishly pray. Looking for a sign. Because of our intimacy, it wasn’t necessary.
The LORD gave me the answer last night. Speaking to my Psyche. What He said is profound!!!
I was informed that this was the behavior of an ABUSER. In specific terms, I was being told, “we like the job that you are doing but we want to pay you even less”!
Knowing that this is detrimental to my mental health and because there is an anointing that comes with the care my patients receive. I would be foolish to allow this maltreatment.
It also speaks volumes to my trust in the LORD and the virtues He has instilled in me. The enemy wanted me to ignore the Spirit and open the door to allow evil to enter my life.
I immediately texted my recruiter back and apologized for answering hastily. Informing her of this blatant misuse of power. And that if anyone ever came to her with those terms on my behalf, that she would not even approach me about it. But to let them know that I will take no less or even consider it again.
It is not about the money. But those who conspired in this plan lacked moral character and integrity. When you enter into an agreement with someone, and unless under dire circumstances, you attempt to renege or cancel the agreement. It is unbecoming. A lack of ethics. Leading to lower morale and distrust.
My Father is the Creator of the heavens and earth. Everything that is within belongs to Him.
I will not compromise my values. For what does it profit me to gain the world and to lose my soul.
I feel as if this was a test. I was being tempted to choose death.
Compromise leads to sin. It is not of God.
